SO I think my last post was talking about some of the symptoms I was having and the surgery that followed. But in case I didn't I will give a little breakdown.
In Feb I had mt tonsiles removed and my adnoys. My ENT (who I hate, and that is the nice way of saying that) said he got everything and all margins were clear.
Shortly after my "recovery" I started having trouble swallowing and choking. Followed by now months of salty foul tasting drainage from the "mass" I feel on the left side of my throat. ENT says all in my head.
I have a headache that will not go away, so I went back to my GP and he put me on antibiotics and nasil spray. Nothing worked. I went to the ER for the headache and she did a cbc and felt around on my neck and other lymp nodes she put me on more antibiotics. The ER doctor called me a week later and said she was worried about me. Which is strange I think. She said I need to see an ENT asap. I told her I would not go back to the local one but would try to see one that is 3 hours away. She said she would help and that she was going to call my GP and discuss some of my test results with him but I needed to sign a release. I did.
Two nights ago the roof of my mouth and my nose start peeling and bleeding so I head to my GP. Gp did another blood draw and stopped all antibiotics. Said my WBC count was not getting better with them.
GP then does an exam and says he now feels the mass and that he is sending me for a CT with and without contrast and a chest xray. Does a breast exam and orders a mamagram says I have suspisious lumps there as well.
I feel so tired all the time, but can't sleep due to the headache so he said he would give me something for sleep. Klonipin, I looked it up and it is for anxity so I called him and asked about that. He said it will help me sleep and will help me through the test to come.
He and the ER doctor called the ENT 3 hours away and told them it is urgent I get in to see him. So after the scans next week I will be scheduled with him.
He says that this is not all in my head and that he is sorry for me having to go through all of this. He said that the CT is expensive but if the results are as he and the ER doctor susspect then I will be able to apply for state help.
BTW the ER doctor did not do a CT when I went because I was worried about the bill and she saaid she understood, she did offer and almost insist but I refused. Hard headed I am.
OK so there is no spell check on this that I can find so PLEASE don't grade my paper. LOL
