At this point yes I just want to be able to breathe. For me it is a consoderation between the balloon sinuplasty and the traditional sinus surgery (or "FESS").
I do have one question - as it was explained to me it was the balloon that was the less invasive of the 2. Is that right?

I don't know which is more or less invasive. I had the FESS a couple of days ago, and it wasn't something where I had to go into the hospital for a very long time. I was released a few hours afterward, and told that I could go back to my normal routine starting today.

Ofcourse the baloon sino is less invasive. They just put a baloon in and inflate it. In FESS they remove stuff. The important question is: is the baloon thing effective long term? Not sure what do myself. I got sinus problems too.
