Luci was missing work due to chronic sinus infections. Here's her story and how she is spending her time off from work now:
“I came to ADVENT because I was having chronic sinus infections. People were super friendly to me and really nice and kind. They explained everything to me. I could do it right here in the office. I didn't have to worry about going under anesthesia and Dr. Kandula and the staff explained to me every little step, ‘This is what's going to happen next. This is what we're going to do. This is what you can expect.’ I felt informed. I didn't have to worry about what was going to be the cost for the procedure. The people here talked to my insurance, so I didn't even have to take care of that. They took care of that for me.
Since the procedure, things have changed so much in my life. I had sinus problems my entire life, so I never had, like, this is what a full breath through my nose, not my mouth, actually feels like and it feels great. I feel a lot more… I feel alive. I have energy. My life has really changed since I've had this procedure.
I was taking a lot of time off because I wasn't feeling well, or I needed to go to the doctor and get antibiotics. Now, since the balloon sinuplasty, I'm not taking that much time off for sinus infections or bronchitis or because I'm not feeling well. I'm taking time off to enjoy a vacation.
This is one of the best things I have ever done for my health and I'm so happy and proud that I did it. If you're suffering from any kind of sinus issues or problems, I would highly encourage you to come to ADVENT and to get an assessment, because you can feel better.”
