Got the scope and mirrors, and all looks really good....I do have swollen glands in my throat, the ones that you'd feel if you had tonsillitus....like under the chin and back towards your throat.
As I mentioned a while ago, these buggers itch like there is no tomorrow...and I mean DEEP itch like a bee sting can itch. I can sit for a half an hour massaging these two glands, just to get the satisfaction of itching the itch. Tuns out these aren't lymph nodes, but the sub-mandular salivary glands. I asked if the itching could be healing, he didn't jump on that, all he said was I might find I have many weird sensations in my head and neck from all the treatments....but "maybe" itching could be a sign of healing. :)
Anyway, I can't remember, but I think it was Katie who was getting the same itch in her neck...that's what we have :).
