I've had chronic sinus issues for around 20 years. I've tried every medication possible. I saw my primary care physician, then went to an ENT, then an allergist then back to the ENT because the allergist had nothing else to offer. I was frustrated because the doctors said they had nothing more to offer. I was thinking I'd have to have major surgery.

As far as the procedure goes, it's really fast. I was done within a half hour. It doesn't hurt at all. It's just a moderate pressure, which in no way compares to the pressure that I was feeling on a regular basis. Since the Balloon Sinuplasty I feel amazing. I think I actually didn't know how good I could feel until now, because it's actually been so long that I've had these symptoms that I've forgot what it was like to just feel normal. So I can breathe much better. I sleep much better. I wake up more well-rested, even when I get less sleep somehow.

After my NFL football career, when I wasn’t working out every day of my life, my sinus problems started to magnify. When I was at work broadcasting, I started having severe post nasal drip and started taking allergy medicine and using nasal pumps. I was trying just about anything, all kinds of homeopathic remedies and teas. I literally tried it all. I tried a hyperbaric chamber to see if I could get more oxygen by sleeping in one of those things. None of it worked. It’s crazy that it was such a simple procedure to get done, to fix something that I struggled with for a long time. After surgery, there was not a lot of recovery time, and when I think about how I feel now and how I’m capable of breathing, it was an easy decision.

When I suffered from chronic sinusitis, I would have a hard time sleeping at night, my breathing would be difficult, and the post-nasal drip was so bad that it would cause issues with asthma. I wasn’t able to exercise the way I wanted to - I missed a few 5K runs due to sinusitis. Finally, my sinusitis could be embarrassing at times - I had a lot of nasal discharge, which could be quite disgusting and required me to blow my nose constantly while teaching.
I had five previous sinus surgeries before surgery with Balloon Sinuplasty Technology. After these prior surgeries, my face was bruised, I had a lot of bleeding, and I was in a lot of pain. I probably missed several weeks of work over the years due to these surgeries. It was frustrating to have surgery after surgery and not feel like I had remedied the problem.
