I have to keep reminding myself to breathe through my nose because, now, I actually can!
I’ve had Allergic Rhinitis ever since I can remember -something which was confirmed only last March. Since then I’ve undergone an Obstructive Sleep Apnea test (which was supposed to cost 30K but only cost 20K) only to find out that I don’t have OSA. Or at least, not yet.
I finally went back to Dr. Michael Sarte, the Sleep Disorder Specialist, today. I already knew that he was going to recommend a procedure called Radio Frequency Turbinoplasty. What I didn’t know until after the procedure was that it was going to cost 40K! Thank gawd I had my checkbook with me!
I will see him again after I get back from Singapore. In the meantime, I need to remember to take my four post-procedure medicines (2 oral, 2 nasal) and breathe through my nose instead of my mouth. Oh, and I actually have to learn how to blow my nose -something I’ve never done in my life (believe it or not).
