Balloon Sinus Surgery for Longtime Sufferers
This blog has covered balloon sinus surgery success stories in well over a dozen states, including plenty of individual accounts. Now we can add Pennsylvania native Cassandra Nailor to the list: her story comes to us by way of local paper The Sentinel, and includes some background that may sound familiar:
Nailor said she had persistent pain in her face centered around her nose and cheeks. It had progressed to the point where she was constantly having trouble breathing normally, which led to problems sleeping.
She reached a turning point when she developed a chronic sinus infection that required three rounds of antibiotics to clear up.
When antibiotics become merely a stopgap and not a lasting solution, it’s time to consider surgical options. Ms. Nailro’s case would have been sent into conventional endoscopic sinus surgery just a decade ago, but today there is balloon sinuplasty, an outpatient procedure that works in minutes.
The outcome may sound familiar as well:
“I just kind of feel like I can take a full deep breath now and not have to worry about that constant pressure and that facial pain as well as quality of sleep,” she said. “I can now sleep through the night … After eight months and even just a few days after the procedure, there is a huge difference.”
