I Have A Wick In My Ear

I have no important updates yet. I’ve called my oncologist’s office three times in the last week trying to find out what’s going, and my doctor has not responded. Even his administrative assistant told me she’s unhappy about this, probably because she has to keep fielding my annoyed calls. How did we go from hands flailing, you-must-get-down-here now to silence? I don’t know, but I’ll be calling tomorrow. Again.

Meanwhile, last week my ear started getting clogged again after two weeks of blissful not being clogged. By Saturday morning, it stopped draining completely, and I haven’t been able to hear out of it since. (My husband just loves that I’m constantly asking him to repeat himself.)Ā  Surgeon #1’s office directed me to Surgeon #2, and I saw him today.

Apparently, the skin graft in my ear canal is swollen. So he put a wick (basically a spongey stent) inside the canal, and now I’m on antibiotic ear drops for the next two weeks. Also, my ear canal is cold because it’s propped way open. Also, also, I still can’t hear because of the stent.

I might be paranoid that a bug will fly in. Hopefully, this paranoia is unfounded and ridiculous.

  1. don’t do it – unless you MUST. Psychiatric care sticks with you – like on your permanent record dude.I pay $600 a month for insurance, and $175. everytime I see the witch doctor. BECAUSE last year when I had to see the neurologist weekly – and was recommended counsleing, the counselor felt I was depressed over the possibility of having a brain tumor. [duh] now – that I really got depressed to the point of clinical depression, my new insurance won’t cover my ‘pre-existing co&7.tionn#821d;iJust be sure dude, it’s all I’m saying…..
