Falling Apart

This is quite appropriate when you consider the rest of my posts this week. To fill you in, I’ve had a sinus infection for the last 3 weeks and pretty bad sinus problems for the last few years. On Monday, I went back to the doctor because things just weren’t getting better. My doctor decided that my sinus problems were chronic (duh!) and that I should see an allergist. To speed up the process, my doctor decided to go ahead and schedule the CT scan that the allergist would do anyway.

So yesterday morning, I went in for my very first CT scan. Not bad at all – with the exception of having to lay still for so stinking long! Well, modern medicine is fast, because my doctor’s office called this morning and I have a sinus disease! It’s some long name followed by sinusitis. Next course of action is antibiotics for a month. Sure hope that works because if it doesn’t I will have to go see an Ear, Nose & Throat doctor to have my sinuses cleaned out and I don’t know what that entails, but it doesn’t sound like much fun!

Sorry to hear that. I've heard that the cleaning is not fun at all.

Are you sure you don't want to borrow that stuff I was telling you about. It sounds gross, but it really works.

Karen - I also recently heard that (just days before I went to the doctor, matter of fact). Considering where your sinuses are located, I can't imagine that would be pleasant.

Suzy - I've thought about it, but I just wonder if it might make things worse.

All my CAT scan showed was swollen sinus so I know mine was all allergies, but the stuff worked wonders. Sounded gross though didn't it. Maybe someday a demonstration will be in order.

Believe I'll pass, thank you! :0) I'd be interested to know more about what my CT scan showed (other than I have a disease) and how long I've had the "disease".

My allergist was Dr. Wells at the Oklahoma Allergy & Asthma Clinic. He's pretty quick and to the point. So if you're shopping around...give him a thought.
