Hi guys, Just a quick question as I find myself continuously fighting unnecessary objections from my parents despite a slight but significant improvement to the abx. Very stressful, it's like climbing the Great Wall of china! I've had a prior consultation with a prominent ENT who found large amounts of thick green mucus occupying my sinus cavaties. Scans are scheduled with the possibility of surgery. Here's the thing, after following Dr K's advise and responding positively to the antibiotics, I'm seeking a private T&A. I've noticed indeed that my tonsils are inflamed which only adds weight to the diagnosis. My question is would T&A be viable 6-7 weeks before attempting to remove any inflammatory fluid occupying my sinuses? My parents are now arguing that T&A won't be allowed where I have an ongoing infection in the sinuses! Unfortunately, due to NHS guidelines T&A surgery can only be sought privately (so costs ££££) They have on occasion begrudgingly accepted the idea of resourcing treatment in the past, but I still feel there not truly onboard with pandas in the clinical sense. I know you guys are the experts, you've been there, have experience, and gone through the experience! I was just hoping if someone could confirm that T&A first would be OK, as I'm desperate to get the treatment now instead of fumbling around talking to people that aren't truly onboard with me experience. Thanks guys you've kept me fighting on through a difficult few months! God bless.
