What have your experiences been with (endoscopic) sinus surgery?

After having a sinus headache for about 4 years, I saw an ENT last week. He did a CT scan, and I found out that my sinuses (frontal, ethmoid, and maxillary...not sphenoid) are filled with gunk, and that additionally, the passages basically go nowhere, so nothing can drain. He diagnosed me with chronic pansinusitis, put me on antibiotics, and I go back to see him in a couple of weeks to discuss surgery. I'm assuming the surgery would include drainage of the sinuses and creation of a better drainage system.
I'd like to know what your experiences were with the surgery, including recovery time.
