if its clinically or radiologically proved chronic rhinosinusitis then you have two options, one word of caution though is your symptoms are not really signs of a typical rhinosinusitis you can try taking medications for atleast 2 to 3 months before surgery. medicines include steroid nasal sprays if medicines are not successful you can go ahead with endoscopic sinus surgery which has reasonably good cure rate I suggest you to take second opinion regarding diagnosis of sinusitis before deciding on treatment
