Results. . . At last!

Thursday, July 10, 2014

What a mission to get stuff done with my sinus!
It's taken months of nagging the drs n being pushy with the hospital ( by ringing n asking where my appointments are) and finally I have gotten back to an appointment with my ENT specialist after my CT scan ( the most disappointing 5 minutes of my life, thought that would be exciting!)
Yay nothing scary or unusual in my sinus, just normal narrow drainage that she wants to enlarge, she only recommends it as she thinks I will get a good result, which is good enough for me. So now it'd be within 2 months n hoping I won't have to take pain relief everyday!
Scary tho, had pre admission check n blood pressure was way high n they checked again n it went higher still. I'm wondering if that's because I'm on paracetamol/codeine for back pain since I'm on diclofenac anyway. Would that raise my blood pressure? Last time pre-diclofenac my blood pressure was on the lower side of normal.

So I get to be a bridesmaid!

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Last thing I want is my fat arse (and potentially the rest of me) in a photo!
Sigh looks like I better use this as my motivation for losing a DECENT amount of weight.
at least it isn't till September next year, but still.
She has picked out her wedding dress and wanted me to hand over measurements for my dress. lol not likely! I WILL be skinnier if it is the last thing I do! Well not literally THE last thing I do but you know. . ..
I told her she would need to get me another dress if we look at dresses before January lol.

And so it begins. . . . . .


Yay more progress on my sinuses

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Yay 16 days until I get a CT Scan on my sinus.
Lol I am so excited, I just know I'm annoying everyone.
You should see the looks I get at work when I do my countdown of "Yay! Only . . . . days till my scan", I'm sure to get someone asking if it's for a baby because of how excited I am.
Yep I am weird, I get excited for medical appointments! Only because FINALLY something is getting done & (fingers crossed) it might get fixed.
Oh yea I don't think I updated on my specialist appointment? Oops, well looks like one side of my nose was a bit tight for the camera & she started going on about surgery and we have 2 different ways of operating. I'm guessing that if they don't find anything else that there might be an operation? Numbing didn't work either, felt the camera nearly getting stuck!

    I've been thru 2 sinus surgeries so I know what it is like having sinus issues. Sinusitis was horrendous for me. The surgery is not bad at all though. Good luck!

Specialist appointment at last!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Finally after nearly 6 months of sinus pain n having tried different meds to sort it, I got my appointment card yesterday n have my appointment next week on Wednesday. I am so excited that I am sure to be annoying at work, I'm already doing my countdown.
Here's hoping that they find out what's causing the inflammation n pain on the first visit (n fingers crossed that he will tell me to stop taking antibiotics)

    Ugh, sinus pain is the worst! I hope this specialist can figure out a long-term/permanent solution to help...I'm sure it'll make all the difference in the world!

Tests n more tests

Saturday, November 30, 2013

Sigh I have been having tests done to see what is up with my sinuses, apart from being super inflamed!
Allergy skin prick tests - nothing came up, literally!
Sinus hurt so head back n ask dr 'is it polyps? Could there be another infection? I'm exhausted so have I got low iron?' So I get another course of antibiotics, a blood test and a referral letter to ENT specialist. But should I be the one suggesting possible treatments?
Thankfully I think the antibiotics are helping, had a wee vertigo thing happening that has eased, have a bit of a wait to hear from specialist n surprisingly though I feel like crap meant to sleep heaps, apparently I'm healthy as n even blood sugars n cholesterol are good. The only thing that show up was inflammation markers - well duh! So now I'm back to not knowing what is happening to my sinuses. Sigh

    emoticon My whole reply just got tossed.. rrr.. try again. SOOO the good news. At least it would seem that your over all health is good. I am so glad you got those baselines on things like blood sugar and cholesterol and that it all seems within the doable parameters. YAY! Great place to start.
Now for those dang sinuses! I can't help but think that the ENT should be able to work with you better on this especially after doing the allergy tests and ruling out other stuff.
I know that doesn't help much when you want to be out and enjoying your summer and all but it is a least a beginning. Hang in there and hopefully they can help you find some resolution... meanwhile feel free to kick something or smash a lamp paint angry graffiti somewhere maybe and blame it all on me ;)
I seriously understand the frustration of not knowing...
Try to stay as positive as possible.. hey here is a thought.. stick with it and maybe by Jan. you will be in much better form for your break??

PS sorry if this sounds all disjointed I just had a series of major interruptions and it's only 5:30 am :P.. I am definitely thinking of you
