I researched every doctor I could find data about. I wanted a doctor who was using state of the art medical techniques, had experience with all of my breathing issues and could work with me in the future regarding my CPAP and sleeping problems. Fortunately, I found that person in Dr Wyll at the Dallas Sinus Center. She did several procedures at the same time –– Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, Turbinate Reduction, Nasal Septal Reconstruction and Balloon Sinuplasty.
While I did have a little discomfort after the procedures, it was more a result of the anesthesia rather than the procedures themselves. I had heard all of the war stories about how much those procedures would hurt, but I honestly did not experience much pain after the first 24 hours. Within a few days, I was able to breathe better than before even though I still had splints inside my nose. After a week, and the removal of the splints, I realized that I should have done this years ago. I now breathe easily, go to sleep without congestion and wake up without congestion. I have more energy due to better sleeping and have even turned down the pressure of my CPAP so it doesn’t wake me up during the night. I’m 62 but I feel 40 again. Dr. Wyll will be my doctor for the rest of my life.
Since my procedure, the sinus infection is gone and I no longer need the Breath Right strips. I can even smell the wild flowers across the street! I have to say I’m really, really pleased with the results.
The Dallas Sinus Center team did an awesome job:
- You addressed all of my concerns and questions prior to the procedure.
- The “What to Expect” handout was very informative and answered all of my post-procedure questions.
- Your “Do-Say” ratio was spot on –– I asked for a call back the day prior to the procedure and got one that evening.
- I received excellent care during my short stay in the medical facility.
I knew what to expect and how I would feel for the week or two after the procedure.
Overall this was an extremely positive experience. I appreciate both the professionalism and the compassion I was shown throughout the process. I’ve recommended Dr. Wyatt and the Dallas Sinus Center to several friends and family members with similar issues.
In my initial examination, Dr. Wyatt explained to me that what I had were nasal polyps, and they could be surgically treated through endoscopic sinus surgery. Naturally the word “surgery” brings up concerns, but in my initial visit, Dr. Wyatt explained all the long-term benefits of the surgery, as well as the improvements that had been made in the same surgery in recent years. No longer do patients have the nose packing and bleeding that were part of this surgery in the past. In fact, I don’t even think of what I had as surgery. I think of it as what it was: an outpatient procedure. Best of all, while I still have allergies, I am now free of all the infections and misery that goes with them.
The staff set the date for the surgery then and there, and made all the arrangements. All I had to do was show up. My recovery was very fast. I was up and alert and sent home the same day of the surgery. And I used only a few doses of the pain medication. In a little over a week, I was back to my “new self” again. From that day on, things were different. My constant sinus infections and the drainage and pain all stopped. I have never again had excessive drainage as a symptom, even during the times I have seasonal allergies. I have had one mild sinus infection in the three years since my surgery. Thanks to Dr. Wyatt, and FESS, I can breathe easily, and I mean that literally. It has changed my life for the better.
Dr. Wyatt diagnosed me with deviated nasal septum, chronic sinusitis and turbinate enlargement. With that many issues, we decided to set up a procedure to correct it all in one day.
I had the FESS procedure one month later. The procedure was quick and there were no problems. I had no bruising and the slight swelling was barely noticeable. I cannot imagine any procedure being as smooth as this one.
Since I had the procedure, every day has been better than the one before. I have experienced no issues at all. The need for decongestant is no longer a part of my day-to-day life, and I have Dr. Wyatt and the Dallas Sinus Center to thank for that.
For most of Allison’s 16 years she has had difficulty with her sinuses. Oral and topical medication treatments provided some relief, but never really resolved the ongoing headaches. Participation in the family sport of open water diving was often difficult, with problems both descending and ascending, in spite of decongestants and saline rinses. In preparation for a 2011 dive trip to Bonaire, NL, Allison was evaluated by Dr. Wyll, and a treatment course outlined. Allison had sinus surgery performed by Dr. Wyll. The medical treatment was excellent, as was Dr. Wyll’s office and nursing team. Dr Wyll provided clear direction and expert treatment that made a difference.
This is Allison at 67 feet under water, near the end of the trip, where she completed 35 dives without any difficulty! Allison is standing on the port side of the wreck of the Williams Express. This was simply not possible previously. Thanks Dr. Wyll!
