Introduction: Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) is regarded as an invasive technique used in the surgical fraternity to restore patients’ sinus ventilation as well as returning to normalcy. Objectives: The main objective of the study is to find the complications of Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery in sinusitis patients. Material and methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted in Jinnah Hospital Lahore during 2019 to 2020. The study was carried in hospital, whereby 200 patients performed Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery operation. After the surgery the patients were followed postoperatively and checked for both minor and major complications, and their experiences at large. Results: The data was collected from 200 patients. The mean age of the patients was 39.25±2.45 years. The major complications presented by the patients in three months follow up were shown in table. Conclusion: All together there are few cases of complications from the manipulations performed during the post-operative visits whereby the theoretical risks are equally the same as the main surgery itself. Nearly all surgeries and postoperative care are closely similar and therefore the consent given for surgery automatically includes consent for postoperative care.
