Technological Nose Picking

It's called Balloon Sinuplasty and it freaking awesome!! The doctor shoves a tube/needle with a balloon up your nose, all under local anesthesia, so it feels really weird. He then inflates the balloon which expands the sinus cavity and begins to slowly drain the sinus. Yes it sounds nasty and disgusting, and if you get a chance to look at the product, it most certainly is. Other than the "ewwww" factor though, it is an awesome procedure which everyone with sinusitis should be aware of and requesting.
