Yesterday I posted that I was worried about the appointment and I got lovely feedback and warm wishes from the community. I thought it was only fair that I should let you all know how it went. #CheckInWithMe
So it was a productive appointment. I got a new medication for my reflux, which will hopefully take care of my #GastroesophagealRefluxDisease and #LaryngopharyngealReflux .
Mainly, I am scheduled for surgery in a month to remove my tonsils. It's not a serious surgery, thank G-d, but I'll need to miss a fair bit of school while I'm recovering. That is not something I'm keen on. I've definitely survived worse, so this will be just a little blip on my radar. My doctor is wonderful and she's the top of her field, so I'm not terribly worried. My anxiety tends to flare up closer to the date, but I'm taking everything as it comes.
I spoke to two of my best friends for hours on the phone after the appointment and that definitely made me feel better. At least emotionally. #Friends
Thank you all for your wishes of good luck and I hope all of you have something lovely happen to you today!
