My doctor is talking tonsillectomy. Anybody done this as an adult and have any advice for me? I’m not excited, but if I have to do, I want to do it before I start chemo. Anybody know if doctors do surgery pro bono? 😀 Obviously, I have to talk to Dr. P. (sarcoma doc) before I make any decisions, but tonsillitis is awful. To top it all off, I’m apparently having an allergic reaction to one of the medicines the doctor prescribed. I broke out all over, am itching like crazy, swollen all over… An amazing friend is bringing over Benadryl, which the doctor told me to take. He’s also prescribing a different antibiotic. Does the pharmacy take back unused drugs? Because I’m a little tired of paying for them and not being able to use them.
I’m trying to get prepared for Houston as best as I can while feeling miserable. The folks at the hospital are actually cracking me up. I have received no less than two e-mails and three phone calls reminding me of my appointment. I have confirmed every single one of these. Do people actually forget appointments to see the leading cancer doctors in the world? I mean, really.
So today will be spent enjoying ice cream and my bed, once the itching stops. I’ll try to post again as I get to Houston and keep you updated on what I know.
