Another Sickness for Me

Posted by SwitSexyThing at 12:41 PM
We finally went to the ENT doctor last Tuesday when I again secreted blood from my nose. This started when I blew in a tissue last week when I have the colds. Instead of mucus, blood-and lots of it, came out of my nose. I am not so worried since it may just be my mucosa since I have been blowing hard to get rid of the mucus as my pulmonary doctor said when I visited him after a few days for my monthly visit. But it became a worrysome thing when it happened again last Saturday and again last Monday this time with me not even blowing in a tissue. I was just lying in bed reading a book when I felt that I need to release something from my nose. When I did get hold of a tissue lots of blood again came out. The bleeding lasted till the next morning but the blood is not gushing out. It won't come out until I blow in a tissue. That made us worry since the blood might be coming from my lungs. So I finally consented to see a doctor - an ENT doctor as my mom pester me, after my husband gave me a cold shoulder after the incident for being so stubborn and not going to an ENT doctor right after the first incident. And so me, hubby and my dad went to an ENT doctor and was instructed to have a nose colonoscopy. A nose colonoscopy is when they insert this rod rod like instrument in your nose to see its insides. Its uncomfortable as hell and it costs a lot too, much to my annoyance. So the diagnosis is in: I'm abnormal; my veins in the nose are exposed which should be under the skin as a normal person's would. Their exposure made them weak and sensitive and that's what's causing the darn bleeding. I need not worry said the doctor. I just have to spray some steroid up my nose twice everyday together with my inhaler which I also take twice a day. It'll be a cause of worry if I started sprouting blood daily - a tablespoon is enough to cause alarm OR if i suddenly bleed buckets of blood. If that happens then it's an emergency since I might lose a lot of blood if I am giving birth and my nose is joining the raket. So there, another sickness for me. I just hope baby won't be so lucky and get them also like what happened to me - I inherited all of my parents health defects from my dad's seryngoma to my mom's scoliosis and asthma.
