Molly’s Story

Molly was stuck in a cycle of antibiotics and unanswered questions. See how this mom was able to overcome a battle with sinus infections and spend quality time with her family:

"I came to ADVENT because I was experiencing recurrent sinus infections.

 

I just felt like I wasn't really getting anywhere with my primary care physician and I thought, well you know you see a specialist for so many other things so, why should it be any different for your health?

 

The physician that I saw at that time recommended that if you know if this something that continues to happen, you might want to consider getting a scan because maybe there's something else going on. I had another sinus infection, came back and decided to try the scan and what they found was that there really was something going on. There was something physical that it doesn't matter how many antibiotics that you take, the only way to truly resolve it was  to actually kind of open up the airways and clear it up that way.

 

So, I decided to schedule a balloon sinuplasty. I remember afterward, even though you have gone through something, I took a deep breath in and out and all of a sudden I realized, wow, I can breathe.

 

Since the procedure, I have more energy because I'm not straddled with all these different sinus infections and so it just gives me the energy to kind of be the best mom that I can be which was really important to me going into the procedures.

 

ADVENT was definitely able to support me even through billing. Especially when you're dealing with insurance and medical procedures. I mean, usually it's over your head. You know it's really complex. But, what was great about ADVENT is they're billing specialist took care of me through the entire process.

 

As I lay in bed at night, I'm I'm just in awe at the amount of air that that I'm able to breathe in and out each night and I haven't had a sinus infection since the procedure."
