Oh my... chimp, let an allergist administer the shots. They have to monitor you for 30 minutes after you get the shot before releasing after a treatment. You can also react within 24 hours after getting a shot and this is what the epi pen is for (because if your airway closes due to alergic reaction inflamation you will die). Something is seriously fishy about a clinic that would not require you to have an epi pen or inject yourself from home.

Well, I ran out of \$ going to the one that required a nurse to do it every time...
The off-chance of dropping speedily dead does not scare me horrendously; I'd roll those dice.
It's not like the asthma and lack of insurance combined has not come close to doing me in on at least one occasion. I don't care so long as it's brief.
Reminds me though, the county people have an allergy clinic. Need to look into that...except I'll probably have to sit there 2 hours to get shot up...

If your symptoms are mostly Rhinitis then Flonaise would probably do you a world of good (and it's much cheaper too... but I am pretty sure it requires a prescription).

Flonase...meh.
Quick rundown here... After the second surgery didn't clear the infection, I started irrigating with a prednisone solution from a dropper...the prednisone is from ...somewhere...as the docs at the county are all doing clinical rotations and have no idea what to do with a case outside of textbook parameters.
My interesting mixture gets the green stuff to drain.

Considering one surgery clears 90% of cases and I have had 2 and am not clear...I would say I am well outside textbook parameters. Epic sinus disease.

I need to go back and try to get a third surgery.
