baloon sinusplasty

Anyone try baloon sinusplasty instead of endoscopic surgery"

I am considering it because my sinus problems have really gotten worse.
I had ct scan done two weeks ago and went to my ent doctor, he says I have infection in maxillary sinuses with mild mucosal thickening and some mucosal thickening in my right frontal sinus.

Also my turbinates are enlarged, and my nasal passages are probably affected.

I have fatigue, redness in eyes in the morning, neck and shoulder pain
and cannot function at work like I used to. I feel spaced out, brain fog
during the day and just wait to get home to rest and go to sleep at night.

My quality of life has diminished whereas I do not care to go out only because I have to go to work, it has all gotten worse. in the last 7 weeks.

I dread getting up in the morning wondering how I will feel.

Anyone else have these symptoms or are considering this type of surgery?

I have taken all kinds of antibiotics and now homeopathic remedies, nasonex, nasal irrigation, with no relief
