Patients Share Their Sinusitis
Karen: "When Mom's happy, everyone's happy."
Karen struggled with sinus and allergy problems for years. She was never in pain, but difficulty breathing at night led to restless sleep and rough mornings. Karen explored a variety of sinus treatments that resulted in harsh side effects, leaving her tired and drowsy. After seeing an ad for balloon sinus dilation, Karen made the decision to improve her quality of life, once and for all. The sinus procedure was quite comfortable for Karen, and six weeks later, she is now able to get a good night's sleep and wake up ready to take on the day. Mornings are good now!
Vernon: "Who wouldn't want to enjoy their life?"
Sinus congestion and headaches impacted Vernon's ability to enjoy his family and think sharp at work. He learned through word-of-mouth that balloon sinus dilation was a sinus treatment that provides lasting relief. Vernon recommends balloon sinus dilation to sinusitis sufferers looking to restore their quality of life.
Cynthia: "Took for granted the ability to breathe well."
Before having balloon sinus dilation, Cynthia experienced chronic sinus pressure, congestion, poor drainage and infections. She would take antibiotics and steroid regimens to help her feel better, but a few weeks later, the cycle of sinus suffering would strike again. Tired of dealing with the side effects of medication, Cynthia made the decision to have the balloon sinus procedure. During the dilation, she felt a bit of pressure, but never pain. Cynthia returned to work the next day and noticed that she was sleeping much more soundly in just one week. Now that she can breathe easy, she feels re-energized and an overall sense of well-being and happiness.
Mary Ann: "I would do it again, most definitely."
Mary Ann always suffered from sinus pressure, but over the last few years, the pressure became constant. After losing sense of smell and taste, every day activities like going out to dinner were no longer enjoyable. The aggravation over her declining quality of life led Mary Ann to pursue balloon sinus dilation. She felt very relaxed during the procedure and did not experience any discomfort. After the procedure, Mary Ann says she regained her sense of smell and taste. She highly suggests the procedure to anyone who struggles with sinus issues looking for lasting relief.
Laura: "Tired of not feeling well."
Like many who suffer from chronic sinusitis, Laura became accustomed to not feeling well. In fact, she couldn't remember what it felt like to feel normal and breathe easy. Laura endured the cycle of sinus pressure, congestion, and headaches, and took sinus medication to endure the pain. She decided it was time to take action and have the balloon sinus dilation procedure. Laura can now breathe much easier and enjoy her days without sinus headaches and pressure interfering with daily activity.
Brandon: "The best thing I ever did."
For many sinusitis suffers, sinus headaches lead to migraines that interfere with daily life. Brandon was no exception. He would have to leave work and sit in dark rooms to cope with the sinus pain. After antibiotics failed to provide lasting relief, he consulted his physician and underwent balloon sinus dilation. Brandon's life improved the very next day. He now sleeps better, breathes better, and the headaches and migraines have subsided.
