Nasal Irrigation - New Sinus Surgery Operation- Sinuplasty

New sinus surgery procedure has emerged in recent months. It is called sinuplasty, and it is similar in concept to angioplasty. That is, a small balloon is inserted into the sinus passages of the patient, the balloon is inflated, then deflated, and then removed. It is claimed that the passage will remain open for some time because of the small malleable bones in the part of the head where the sinuses are located. The theory is that once the balloon is withdrawn, these bones have been moved slightly and will remain in place. If this in fact proves to be true by follow-up tests and studies, this would undoubtedly be an interesting option for many sinus sufferers.

Is Claimed that There is Little Pain in the Sinuplasty Procedure

I personally have had two sinus operation, and the pain and discomfort involved in each was substantial. After the first operation my nose was 'packed'. That is, a large amount of gauze was placed in each nostril to stop bleeding and help start the healing process. Thus, all breathing has to be done through the mouth for the week or so that the gauze stays in the nose. It is very difficult to eat like this, because one cannot swallow food and breathe at the same time. Removing the gauze was another painful experience. The ENT specialist said that 'this will feel like I'm pulling your brains out'. He was right, and that is exactly what it felt like. With regard to pain, I feel that I'm willing to tolerate it if going through the pain will accomplish something. In the case of my two sinus operations, I was still coming down with infections afterwards, so all the pain was really for nothing.

Did you know that sinuses could be fatal if left untreated for long? Now that you have understood the impact of sinuses, here are a few methods on how to cure sinuses. Further, chronic sinusitis, which usually lingers for about eight to ten weeks, will seriously affect the patients' productivity in school, work place and home.
