Hopefully, this is the last time I have to talk about my nose!
Just back from my post op surgical visit. Ears, nose and throat are healing well. I can breathe, swallow and talk. I should have done this years ago. It was Completely Worth the Surgical Misery.
NO MORE ANTIBIOTIC!! Whoo Hoo! I feel bionic.
Solid food – how I have missed you. I was sick of yogurt and mashed bananas with a side of water. I couldn’t swallow easily because of the surprise removal of polyps on my uvula and throat. I lost 8 lbs.
The trick is to keep them off – but I also feel good enough to work out on a regular basis again, something I haven’t been able to do since last November.
I can resume my regular daily sked (gym, grocery store, errands for everybody, laundry, housework, garden, dinner. Lather, rinse, repeat). Ok – not very exciting, but I enjoy it. Add in family and friends and it = happiness to me.
Thank you - lj buddies - for writing to me during my recovery. The painkillers made me stoopid and sad (I would be a terrible drug addict, maudlin instead of edgy or cool) and it was comforting to read concerned well wishes. You are an amazingly kind community.
All you out there who have been considering sinus surgery and putting it off – GO!! You won’t believe how good you feel on the other side.
I'm off to eat (no calorie) pie and dance!
