Today’s visit with Dr. Prasad was fantastic! My stents came out smoothly and were very clean. Dr. Prasad said my method of using the sinus rinse and the ear syringe to suck excess out was working very well for me. He also said that my throat was healing great.
With that bit of good news, he said he wanted me to start eating more solid foods. I came home and had some pasta with ground beef. For dinner I had some chili. Everything went down fine.
I am still taking pain med’s, steroids, antibiotics, and rinsing with half water/ peroxide. He recommended I go back to the saline spray instead of the sinus rinse now that the stents were out. So far they have not been as bad as there were earlier in the week.
I am able to breathe very well out of my nose and I feel fine. I consider myself to be healing faster than normal, and I feel very blessed for that.
