Missing Cribriform plate and HBOT

Somebody inquired if she, having nasal cancer and having had her cribriform plate removed through surgery, and now undergoing radiation therapy would be a possible candidate for hyperbaric therapy in the future (if warranted) or would it be contraindicated because of the missing plate?

She will be undergoing 6.5 weeks of radiation to the nasal area.  Her surgeon told her that the pressure from the hyperbaric would travel through her sinuses and cause her brain to herniate because she is missing the cribriform plate. 

Thoughts?
