Wow. It’s literally been over two months since I’ve posted anything ._.

I haven’t had the chance to blog AT ALL since I started working, but since I’m off for the next two weeks I thought I’d use this opportunity to write a bit.

It sucks when you have so many ideas and thoughts for a blog post but no time to actually post them.

Any who, March was pretty good I guess. I was working a lot and that basically takes up all of my time, which sucks, but I need the money. I do wish I had more time to do the things that I would like to do, but then I realize, I don’t really do much. Mostly because it’s hard to go out and do things when you don’t have your own car. So that’s a major setback on its own. But at least I’m making a lot of money x)

Other than that, I had my appointment in early April with an ENT doctor to discuss getting my tonsils removed finally, which I was happy about. After years of dealing with throat infections, tonsil infections, tonsil stones, and being sick all the time, I finally had the chance to talk to a real doctor about getting them removed. So I jumped on that opportunity.

The consultation went exactly how I wanted it to. My doctor was very nice, answered all my questions, and didn’t turn me down for wanting to take my tonsils out like those retards at UMC. He informed me that it’s not a fun surgery to have and recovery will be more rough on me since I’m older and this procedure is usually done on small children. I understood and still wanted them out once and for all, so we did all the paperwork and made the appointment for my tonsil removal surgery on May 5th. Making that yesterday when I finally got them removed.

And just like with my bunionectomy surgeries, I will be documenting my personal experience right here on my blog so that you can have insight from me as things are happening and as I am healing. And in return, I hope these posts will help inform and answer some questions others may have regarding a tonsillectomy if they or someone they know is having the same procedure done.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability!

Thank you for stopping by and have a great night guys!(:

    Is the 2 weeks off work because of the tonsillectomy? Is that how long it takes to completely heal after getting the procedure done? And can you still sing the same? LOL!

      Yes I had to take two weeks off from work so that I can heal properly. It shouldn’t take longer than that for me to heal. My doc says usually you can return to work after one week, but because of my job and being outside all day in the heat, it’s best for me to take the two weeks. And idk yet, I was told not to sing at all until like after a month of recovering lol. There could be a very slight change to my voice but nothing drastic.

    I can relate. I had my tonsils removed many years ago. I was 12 years old.

    Wow! This was interesting. My 22 year old son just had a consultation with an ENT about a tonsillectomy. He had a peritonsillar abscess in March that he had to have lanced and drained at the ER. We learned that the surgery is a lot rougher in adults than it is in children. I wish for you a speedy recovery!!
