Marcia's Story

I have suffered with nasal and sinus problems for years. I had constant pressure in my head from these problems and I felt like it limited me from doing my favorite activities like going on our boat or playing with my grandchildren. I used everything known to man to help remedy. I used sprays, rinses, netty pots and other products and nothing worked. At first I thought I was allergic to something but when I had the allergy test done, it showed that I was not allergic to anything. I’ve even had surgery for a deviated septum and that didn’t cure my stuffiness. To help alleviate the pressure, I was always taking antibiotics. My physician referred me to Dr. Catalano who told me that I was a perfect candidate for the balloon dilation.

The balloon dilation was a simple non-invasive procedure where they widened my sinus passage using a balloon. I went home right after the surgery and I was doing things around the house the next day. I felt no pain and did not have to take any pain medication. Ever since the procedure, I have not taken an antibiotic to clear my sinuses and I feel like I have control over my life again. I am 65 years old and retired and I feel like I can really enjoy my time. One day, my husband I plan to take our boat to the inter-coastal and be our active selves again. I definitely recommend Dr. Catalano. He made my life better for me and my family. I am still his patient and I am scheduled to have a similar procedure done to fix my plugged ear. After this surgery, I will be very happy to be able to clearly hear the laughter of my five grandchildren.
