In less than 24 hours, I’ll be admitted to Gleneagles Hospital for an operation. Yes, I know that this is too sudden.
It started two weeks ago when I discovered a small growth (the size of two red beans combined) in my right nostril. I consulted a GP, and he referred me to an ENT specialist for further examination.
Last week, I made a trip to an ENT specialist clinic at Gleneagles Hospital. The video nasoendoscopy revealed that the growth is a nasal polyps. For a complete diagnosis, I also went for a CT scan on my sinuses.
The CT scan revealed “something” that is quite unusual on my left nostril. The infection actually started on my left nostril and it pushed the nasal polyps to the right. The ENT specialist confirmed that an operation is needed to remove the nasal polyps and infection. He will also take specimens for further examination.
I agreed to go for an operation as soon as possible even though there is a small risk involved. No operation is 100% risk-free; I’ll rather not talk about it here.
I’ll be away for a few days. Will be right back when I get better.
