Cate Blanchett Thrilled After Sinus Surgery
When you are an actor or a singer, your voice is your livelihood. Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett recently disclosed that she has struggled with sinus symptoms for many years, to the point where those symptoms had to be shoehorned into a number of her roles:
The Lord of the Rings star says, “I was in a stage play… I played Miranda in The Tempest and I had to put my head into this rusty bucket night after night and I traced it back and that was the last time I heard anything… I must have got (sic) this terrible ear infection.
Her situation changed completely when she underwent sinus surgery in Los Angeles. Like so many patients who struggle to hear and breathe in a normal acoustic world, the actress found the transition to life with open sinuses remarkable:
“The Post Nasal Drip stopped after the sinus operation and then my ears popped and I can hear… I’ve been able to dial everything (volume) down.”
My sinus surgery center offers a number of procedures, including:
- Balloon sinuplasty
- Turbinate reduction
