A New Weight Loss Plan
So I just got back from the doc's office.....again......I've been on 3 rounds of antibiotics since December and this sore throat problem keeps recurring. Bottom line is....he says I have "cryptic Tonsils" with chronic tonsillitis as the result....he said my tonsils are huge. My glands in my throat are so swollen and painful from this chronic throat problem that I just about jumped off the table when he was feeling for them. So, he gave me a 3 week supply of antibiotics and said that if this doesn't knock it out then the next step is an ENT and tonsillectomy. My first reaction was....HELL no....I have no interest in going under the knife. But then I started coming to my senses and thinking that a tonsillectomy might be just what I need to kick my weight loss plan into gear!! It's a little extreme but drastic times call for drastic measures!
