As a minimally invasive, nonsurgical procedure, Balloon Sinuplasty ™ patients typically do not report the negative side effects that are often associated with traditional sinus surgery. However, like with all medical treatments there are some symptoms that patients should be prepared for. It is very common for all nasal and sinus surgeries to produce some bloody drainage for the first few days after your procedure. This drainage amount will decrease and lighten in color quickly. Some patients may also experience minimal amounts of swelling that can feel similar to congestion. Fatigue is also a common side effect for around a week after the order to alleviate feelings of congestion, sleep with your head elevated and take the antibiotics and steroids your doctor will prescribe to you. These will seriously reduce the likelihood of an infection developing and will help alleviate pain you may experience. However, most patients claim that they feel almost no pain and don’t feel the need to take any prescribed pain should refrain from blowing your nose for at least 24 hours after the procedure. Moderate exercise like walking is acceptable, but any strenuous activity should be avoided for one week. This includes vigorous exercise. Dr. Sinha will most likely require you to rinse your nasal passages with saline spray for about three to seven days after your procedure. This will keep your nose lubricated and prevent any additional bleeding or complications from occurring.

The pain felt during appendicitis is not like any pain one experiences during indigestion or a usual stomach ache. It starts near the belly button and moves lower to the right. Appendicitis occurs most commonly in people between the ages of 10 and 30, but it may happen to anyone at any given point in time. One out of 15 people develop appendicitis in his or her lifetime. The occurrence is highest among males, aged 10 to 14, and among females, aged 15 to 19. You will find that appendicitis leads to more emergency abdominal surgeries than any other condition.
