Another surgery coming up...

This time it's for a polyp in my sinus canal. The CT scan also showed I have had such long term sinusitis my tissues has calcified in an inflamed state and I am only getting 5% air through my nose.  Could be a HUGE reason why I am so tired and can't sleep at all.  Surgery is June 13th.  Dr. said I will out for at least a week because they have to chip away at all the calcification and it's not a "normal" sinus surgery.  Nothing for me is normal so that's ok.  lol  I can't really report on the food thing.  I have been so sick with two back to back sinus infections so I am eating a ton of soup.  Eewww... Soup makes me bloat up like a whale due to all the salt.  As fat as I am I am not one of those fat people who likes salt.  I NEVER add salt to anything.  Even when I used to eat fries I would scrape off the salt before I took a bite.  lol  I swear to you I have seen someone put salt on a salad!  Anyway, at least one thing I have always done is healthy... lol

Pic of the day...  A new lake spot we found while on a drive near our house.  I was able to get out and walk around to take pics.  The little things...

Is it Medifast soup? I find that stuff so bland and sometimes add bouillon to it. It's good you don't like salt :)

Good luck on your surgery! Hope you feel better soon.

I have a friend with a similar situation. Her sinuses were horribly calcified. She had the surgery and was a different person after the recovery. She felt so good. I pray you have the same success.
