The Right One Is Bigger Than The Left One

No I'm not talking about my breasts. Or my testicles for that matter. It's a bit higher up than that. I suppose I'll start at the beginning, as every good story should. You might recall that I said I was feeling something in my throat but my doctor couldn't see what it was. If I didn't then that happened a few months ago.
Apologies if I did neglect to mention that.
So anyways my GP booked me an appointment with the hospital to see a professional ENT. Not the tree kind but the ear, nose, and throat doctor kind. Yesterday was that appointment and it was pretty uncomfortable to say the least. My GP warned me that they would be putting a camera in my throat to get a better look. What he neglected to tell me was that the camera would be going through my nose. I have to recommend you never put a camera up your nose.
The actual face I made
Just thinking about it is making my eyes water again. Really don't recommend it. So back to the title of the post and what it was alluding to. After all that unpleasantness the doctor tells me that my right tonsil is bigger than the left one. This is likely the problem but to rule anything else out they're going to book me in for another test, and then a follow up appointment to discuss any options. It's likely the only option will be to have my tonsils taken out though. He had a thick accent so I couldn't fully understand him but from what I made out the test involves drinking something and having a picture of my throat taken.

Sounds far more comfortable than a camera shoved up the nose.


  1. Oh man, the ol' nasal love-making. That's never too pleasurable. But it could've been worse: you could've had bladder issue and they could've shoved a camera down there.

    1. Yeah when I told a friend about it she just told me to look forward to my first colonoscopy. At least I can make that just as awkward for the doctor as for me.

  2. I had a test like that once, I almost panicked. Good luck with your tests Mark.

  3. I don't care how big my tonsils get I won't go to the doc's office.

  5. I had a physical today which involved a procedure that all men over 50 must have.
    There was a slight enlargement, the doctor said, but nothing to be concerned about.
    All things considered, I would have rather had something shoved up my nose.
    Incidentally, this procedure will eventually come to you.

    By the way, you see how I deleted a comment? I misspelled a word and so decided to remove it. I always wonder when I see that on my blog. So, I just thought I'd let YOU know.
