facing surgery

i think this is ok for me to post here since i have hiv/aids..


my throat has been bothering me the past year
the symptoms i have been experiancing are
a sore throat
it sometimes feels like something is swelling up
against my adams apple,giving me weird feelings thru
the nerves in the area,i have had slight pains in my shoulders and chest
i also have a unusual dry throat,i wake up in the night
and have to go drink something.

anyway i have been working with a doctor
and i have been thru alot of tests.
they did a ct scan of my throat a few weeks ago
and they said one side looked larger then the other.
the doctor said in his opinion it was probably nothing
and i have 2 options
one is to let it ride and come back for a follow up
in a certian amount of time.
or the other option is surgery
knock me out,then
to go in and get some samples of tissue to examine.

well,i know something is wrong with me so i elected the surgery.
i have 2nd thoughts about it and
i wanted to speak to my hiv doctor about it
but my appointment was canceled because they didn't have power and thier computers got wiped out by the storm.
i don't know what i'm doing now
i have pre op appointments next week...
