Doctor news

So, I don't have cancer.

(Insert sound of much rejoicing!)

He said the lump in my lymph nodes was "not impressive." And he knew the cause.

I have a rip-roaring chronic sinus infection. It's apparently draining into my lymph nodes and causing the swelling. (Sorry to be gross!)


Actually, I've had one as far back as I can remember. But this guy is determined to banish it forever. So, for the next month, I'm on antibiotics, nasal spray (for a week), nasal washes twice a day, and acidophilus (to combat the nastiness the antibiotic will cause).

Should be fun - not! But it could be a lot worse, so I'm thankful.

Good luck with the antibiotics. They always give me nausea, in addition to the "nastiness".

Thank goodness for that.
So just remind yourself of what it could have been when you are not enjoying the treatment next month!

Ladies, you're so right about the antibiotics. And I will remember it could have been worse.... I sat through chemo with my mother-in-law. I'll take the antibiotics and nasal washes instead, thank you!

Good for you, honey. That news couldn't be better!
