Is it safe to listen to music at a moderately loud volume if you have been diagnosed with chronic sinusitis? I am a musician who plays in a band that tends to be loud. I can wear in-ear headphones that have noise isolation and adjust the volume to a lower level, but I don't want to risk making matters worse than they already are.

I just had an appointment today with an ENT Specialist, and he scheduled me to have surgery in 2 months time from now (it's already been 3 months since it all started). I asked him about it, and he said it was safe to play in the band because it would be the same as if I was wearing an ear-plug in my ear. Still I'm not entirely convinced that it's wise to do so.
