My mom is addicted to nasal spray

Her sinuses are blocked as normal, and she has to spray every couple hours to open them up.

I have been pleading with her to get over her addiction and quit the sprays, she understands and agrees with me on principle but is too afraid to “suffer” with a stuffed nose.

My question is, how long do you reckon it will take the sinuses to get back to the normal physiological state of being open regularly if she quits cold turkey?

Im hoping if i can give her an actual concrete number of days that it will take to get to normal, i might convince her to quit.

Thanks for the reply, she has been using sprays for the past 23 years, i reckon the damage may be permanent.
