Dont feel bad ur not alone!! I had facial swelling and pain for a month after my balloon sinuplasty!! This procedure is not for everyone, my sinuses were severly closed and I had had two sinus surgeries before this one. I had this done last november and I am sick right now with a sinus infection, antibiotics still arent getting rid of them and my sinuses are STILL CLOSED!! SO dont worry ur not just being a baby cause not everyone has the same sinuses and therefore arent going to recover the same and unfortunately you may not even get any benefits out of going through this either. My ent has basically told me he doesnt know what else to do!! Im waiting on receiving insurance them im getting a second opinion. ...good luck to u...hang in thereView Thread
