Adenoidectomy – why am I worried?

I am sitting here, trying to blog but to be honest my head is full of stuff about what Tuesday will bring.

Not sure why I am worried, it is just a minor operation, but it is an operation. An operation I don’t really want. I know that I will be OK, I know that, or have read, that the 24 hours with a sore throat could be a little more..more like a couple of weeks. I can deal with that. Or could I? Think so. Compared to what it could of been, another parotid gland tumour adenoidectomy is nothing. I hope!

I think it is more to do with another day away from my family, when it has only been 10 months since my last hospital stay, my last operation. The dreaded gallbladder removal. At least this time it is less invasive! I can walk properly. I probably won’t be able to eat for a few days..a good thing, right? I was jumping for joy about the news that the consultant gave me, I still am..mostly. But I just could do without another operation.

I am a little bit worried about what caused the enlarged/swollen/congested adenoids. As mentioned in the last blog post, I should have hardly any. I know the consultant said he wasn’t overly worried about it but then I wonder why I have to have them removed and for them to be tested. Oh my goodness my brain sucks! I have a brain that analyses too much. I suppose it is natural but very very annoying.

So I have one normal day and then I am going to hospital Tuesday morning. I am to have the operation in a private hospital. Still NHS treatment though! Wonder whether I get my own room?!

After Tuesday, just need to get the blood test out of the way and HOPEFULLY!! I will get a clean bill of health! Just need to shift some of my weight. Ohh I bought a Fitbit One today. Going to collect it tomorrow! I am rather excited about receiving this. Perhaps it will give me the motivation that I need.
