Don't let them push you around, even if he does not have an infection you will feel better if he is seen.

How do you know he has a sinus infection? Does he have a fever? If there seems to be a complication, call the surgeon. Do not wait 3 months.

No.the surgeon wants me to bring him back on 3months to re-evaluate him.I was told he would have a runny nose for up to 3wks but its dried up.

Have you been back to the surgeon, to be certain there is no abscess? If it does not clear up with one course of antibiotics, I personally, would request a CT of his sinuses. It is not uncommon for post op infections happens since the swelling can prevent drainage and then bacteria can grow and cause trouble. Did he get his tonsils out too?
