“During May, I was experiencing a severe sinus infection in Florida and then again in June while in Michigan. It even affected my eye sight in my right eye. It felt like a piece of wood was stick in my eye, causing me pain. Initially, I went to an eye doctor but he found nothing.
Then I read an article suggesting that it might actually be caused by a severe sinus infection.
I went to Michigan ENT and met with Dr. Richard J. Strabbing, DO.
He prescribed amoxicillin to make sure there was no bacterial infection in my sinuses. He also prescribed fluticasone, a nose spray, and recommended nose rinsing.
In July, I had a CT scan of my face. Dr Strabbing took time to review the CT scan with me and showed me where my sinuses were clogged. He suggested a balloon sinupasty. This is a simple procedure. He goes up through the nose and when ready, they inflate a small balloon which opens the clogged sinus to allow drainage to occur.
I experienced some discomfort but no real pain. It caused bleeding and it felt like my nose was clogged. I rinsed it often and after two days, my nasal passages were open.
I would highly recommend Dr.Strabbing and the procedure of balloon sinuplasty.”
