My Bone Marrow Transplant

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

I went to an ENT Specialist yesterday. My right ear has been bothering me for a few weeks, just feeling like it is blocked most of the time. He shoved a camera in my left ear to show me what a good ear looks like, surprisingly hairy in there but no wax. Then he went into the right ear and it was very gungy. What followed was not nice; he tried to suction out the wax that was stuck to my eardrum which was intensely painful! He got some out but the pain was so great he abandoned the suction and used a pair of fine tweezers to extract a lot more; less pain but still some. There is still some stuck to my eardrum so he gave me a prescription for Cleanear which I have to use 3 times a day to dissolve the remaining wax.

Also yesterday I received permission to reduce the Prednisolone dose to 15mg per day. So far so good.

I’ve got Sam’s cough with a bit of phlegm, Chinese cough medicine keeps it under control.
