Done For Now

I have gotten all my blood work done and have seen a doctor today and yesterday. The doctor I seen today was another Ear/Nose/Throat specialist. He told me he would be the one going through my nose to get to the tumor. He explained everything to me about the surgery. He put a tube down both sides of my nose to examine it. It wasn't to painful since they sprayed it first. He said I would be in the hospital for about 3 days and my nose will be packed for 2 of those days. It doesn't sound like fun to me. I just have to wait to see the neurosurgeon on Tuesday to find out if I can take medicine to shrink it or if I need surgery. I think since all of my tests are back I am going to call the doctor tomorrow to see if I can get in to see him sooner than Tuesday. I hate having to wait that long for an answer since all my tests and blood work is back.

Well, I am going to relax and watch some television. Have a great evening everyone.

I'm praying for your speedy recovery Dutch. I also pray the tumor can be shrunk without surgery or whichever method is the easiest and least painful or uncomfortable. Stay strong.

Hi Dutch,

I am sure you are anxious about finding out if you can just take meds to shrink it. I am rooting for you to get through this with as little pain and discomfort as possible! Keep us updated.
Hugs!
