Before the procedure, I was having quite a bit of sinus pressure, congestion, drainage. I was having sinus infections maybe three to four times a year. I would typically complete a course of antibiotics, be OK for a few weeks, and then have to go back on the antibiotics again. This is something that I have been dealing with most of my life, and it seemed like there was really no end to it. I decided to have the balloon dilation because I developed another sinus infection, and I just finally thought, "enough."
I returned to normal activities in less than 24 hours after the procedure. Following the procedure, I was able to sleep so much better than prior to the procedure. I remember waking up with a refreshed feeling and feeling like I actually had energy.
