Hi, Really need some advice. Has anyones child ever had nasal polyps? My 12 year old has had what we thought was dust mite allergy for over a year. Finally a doctor has looked up his nose and said he has lots of nasal polyps! Having steroid spray and drops to try to get them down - may need surgery. Does anyone have any experience of this with their child? A bit of advice / support would be really appreciated x

Not a child but DH has had polyps operations - hardest part according to him is when they remove bandages from nose but it's over pretty quickly. Operation certainly improved his breathing and quality of life.
