Well, my appointment with the allergist finally came today. I went in this morning to be prodded with needles.
After being jabbed a few dozen times, I was sent out to wait for a while, and finally got to see my doctor. He’s a very pleasent older gentleman who wears a bow tie and reminds me slightly of an orchestra conductor.
Unfortunately, his news wasn’t good. According to today’s tests, I’m not allergic to much of anything. Which means that my ENT was mistaken that the remainder of my post-surgery symptoms were allergy related. Which means that anti-allergy antihistimines aren’t going to do much.
Which means…..what? Dammit, I’m tired of having what amounts to a permenant head-cold. I’m tired of constantly trying to clear my sinuses and my throat and sniffling and…..just blah.
I’ve got new medicines to try. I’m sure they’ll be just as effective as the last ones. I’m running out of faith in the medical establishment.
