"My quality of life has drastically improved!"

If you would ask my husband, he would also share that same sentiment. He says he enjoys waking up in the middle of the night now just to watch me breathe because I'm breathing peacefully, and I'm sleeping. I'm not waking up many times during the night, or not waking him up many times during the night, with my inability to breathe. I would definitely recommend this procedure to anyone who's suffering with chronic sinus issues and allergies. It's life changing. It made a big difference in my life.

- Karen, wife and mother

"Symptoms that I felt prior to the procedure - sinus congestion and drainage, pressure, headaches, and night time coughing - that was gone for the first time since I can remember."

I felt better from day one. When I play on the floor with the grandkids, I don't get dizzy. Dizziness was something that was bothering me prior to the procedure, and it was kind of funny. I didn't really realize it was related to the sinuses until afterwards when the dizziness went away. Without question I wholeheartedly recommend this. For the minor inconvenience of having the procedure done, have a major step up in lifestyle quality.

“I decided to have the balloon dilation because I just finally thought, 'Enough!' ”

The steroids make me have insomnia and just not feel very good in general. The antibiotics gastrointestinal side effects. The decongestants make me feel jittery. The antihistamines would make me very drowsy. Always the side effects. I decided to have the balloon dilation because I just finally thought, "Enough!" Following the procedure, I returned to normal activities in less than 24 hours. I was able to sleep so much better than prior to the procedure. I remember waking up with a refreshed feeling, going about my morning activities and feeling like I actually had energy. You really take for granted the ability to just breathe through your nose easily.

- Cynthia, life-long-sinus sufferer
