Thinking it was home stretch.. Sinus infection!

Just when I thought it was home stretch, I'd get the surgery and be done with it and send Auntie Flo on her way, I get a . I'd been coughing and sneezing a lot over the weekend and today woke up with just a little pressure in the forehead. My ENT Doc is on vacation, but his second was on duty and let me schedule in the afternoon.

I called my Gyno doc, and he prescribed an antibiotic I couldn't take. Ruh-roh. He said if I had an infection, they wouldn't do an intubation, thus no surgery. "Intubation?????" I'll be asking more questions about that, for sure!

Saw the ENT doc, he gave me a good antibiotic and a shot of cortisone (so I'm gonna be a cookie monster tomorrow). And I'll be giving the doc the "do not take" med list again on Wednesday, if they let me have the surgery.

Re: Thinking it was home stretch.. Sinus infection!

Intubation is when they put the tube down your throat to breathe for you when you are under general anesthesia. I imagine it is harder on you if you are conested and that is why they would reschedule if it got too bad. I have been afraid of getting sick and having to reschedule my surgery. I hope you clear up quickly and are able to get safely to the other side!
