Trying to do some research here, to help a friend. He is facing a choice between sinus surgery (FESS) and balloon sinuplasty. The balloon is "supposed to be" less invasive and he is encouraged there. But he is not finding much in the way of "success stories" and the like.

Is there a "word on the street"? Has anyone had this done? Heard it recommended?

We have found some into on the net but are still looking for more. Always good to do research, right?

I've never heard of the ballon sinuplasty, but a friend of mine had the FESS several years ago and she still has trouble today. It didn't help her at all.
