wounded in the line of duty
I had nasal polyps in 1996. This was when I was not getting well with a high dosage of antibiotic medicne. This is when I went to a Nose, Throat, Ear specialist and found out I had Polyps. Make a long story short, I also had a 2nd surgery in 2004 with the return of Polyps. Then not many years later, because it is now 2010 I had polyps again. I did switch doctors, (another story) not by choice, owed money because these doctors are not cheap. This doctore is more layed back, saying well it is up to you if you want surgery or not. He knew if I got to the point of not breathing again, I would be back. Well as you know they do not like giving pretezone but every 4 months. He said if I needed this more often, surgery. I have had testing done from both doctors. Allergic to things but really nothing to cause these polyps. They useally test you for the things that most people are alllergic to, wheat, eggs, pollen, animals, etc. But I took it upon myself to start backing off some food products to see if I could come up with anything. First, I did all they told me with the pillow covers, animals not in bedroom, (my mother took my dog), etc. Nothing helped! So, I am going back to where I started to say I took it upon myself to back off certain foods, and milk was one of them. I do not drink milk, but I still buy soymilk and D vitimins. Predizone will weaken the bones. Then I for some reason, (prayer) quit diet drinks. Those two things I have quit. Now, today it has been 6 months and I have not had to have steroids. I am watching and absorbing all this in. I pray it is the answer to my prayers. I have never went this long with out begging for steroids. I still have the muccus, and sometimes I wake up with one side or the other clogged, but the polyps so far has not grown back to the point of me not breathing at all. I just wanted others to know that it may not be what the doctors are testing you for. So, When I know for sure this was my polyp problem milk and/or diet drinks I am going back and explain to them so they can actually get this in their study and see if there is a connection.
