First off, this has been running through my head for weeks (well, a certain part of it) So I thought I'd share: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ucfgdFrlho

OK...I went to my preop with the ENT on Monday. I had a feeling it was growing as I've been in a lot more pain, getting headaches, and having blurred/double vision. My dr was stuck in surgery, but one of his associates did the preop. When her finger got about 8" away from my nose, my right eye is getting stuck and has a hard time moving in further. When she did the scope, I could see how much bigger it's gotten. Before it filled about 1/2 the screen and now it was covering the whole screen. She said it looks like it's sagging down further into my maxillary sinus. Surgery is 2 weeks away and I cannot wait. I've had to take out my contacts because the right one keeps getting stuck, but the sun hurts my eyes.

At least I'm off work and Jenna is old enough to take care of herself.

I am sorry that you are feeling worse Michelle. It is almost here. They still think this is benign?

yeah, they think the initial surgery didn't get rid of it all. It was close to the tear duct and that's a tricky spot. That's why this time they're having 2 surgeons.

Is there any way they can reschedule the surgery so you can get in sooner? I'm sorry it's bothering you again. I hope they get all of it this time.

No, it was supposed to be in June, but because they had to get 2 specialists together to do it (both whom go out of the country to do conferences, etc). My ENT is doing the surgery on the day that he normally doesn't because it was the only day that the oculoplasty can do it. The oculoplasty is adding my surgery in to his schedule. They told me back in May the goal was for me to not have to miss work. I debated going to the ER where they work, but then I had to hope they'd do it and not someone else. More than likely it'd be someone else and I'd run the chance of them not getting it all. People fly in from other states and countries for the oculoplasty and the only reason I got in so quickly with the ENT is because my original ENT went to school with my new one and they had a cancellation. I'm sure such high specialities are going to be pricey, we're double insured thankfully though
