Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Sinus infections can be really bad as they are chronic and resistant.
They also provide a constant nidus of throat infection because of post nasal drip.
I will advise you to get a CT of the paranasal sinuses done, and if it shows evidence of infection, then you can discuss with your ENT about a surgery which will remove the sinuses. It is also called FESS or Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.
Hope this was helpful,
