Since I have been diagnosed in April I have had 4 scopes through my nostril and down my throat. My 4th was this past Monday after going over my 3 month post surgery PET scan results.
Up until this last scope they have not been painful but merely a tad uncomfortable, but on Monday it hurt like hell. It was like a giant toothache in my brain. The doctor said that everything down there was swollen and red and he assumed that I was fighting a cold or viral infection. He was unable to see anything so the scope was aborted. I told him that I don't think I have a cold but we did add a dog to our household two weeks earlier. I am allergic to dogs and cats but deal with it fine with Claritan but I'm thinking the dog pushed it over the top.
Has anyone had an experience like this? I now have to find out if it is allergies or something else and will likely have to find a new home for this beautiful dog the family has just started to bond with.
The scopes are an important part of my check ups and I'm scheduled for another scope in 4 weeks. Any thoughts?
