Well, I went to Boston this week for my minimally invasive sinus procedure. It was an outpatient deal and I stayed with my friend who lives in Massachusetts so it wasn't all bad. I have a drippy nose (and will for a while) but no pain, at least not in the area of my sinuses. That part went very well.
The hard part was getting set up in pre-op. The anesthesiologist could not get a needle in my vein to hook up an IV. After ten or so attempts she went for help and then there were to of them jabbing both arms with needles. She finally settled on using a tiny needle --"the size we use for babies." My arms are a lovely shade of purple and my hands look like pin cushions.
I am hoping to be breathing better soon.
