Re: ENT scope through the nose
Don't worry about the scope through the nose by the ENT, that is easy. They spray an antisthetic up your nose and after a few minutes you can feel it go down the back of your throat a little bit. Then they just insert a thin tube up your nose and down the back of your throat. You can feel a little of the pressure, but it's not a painful feeling. The only problem I had was when the Dr. wanted me to swallow while it was in the back of my throat and I couldn't do it at first, I think I was scared that he was going to let me swallow the tube, but that is not the case. He just wanted to see that everything looks okay when you swallow. He's only in there for about a minute and he can even make it touch where you were describing the burning or something stuck sensation, whichever you may have. Then that can help him. When he's done he just pulls the tube out. He went up my right nostril because he said my left one the sinuses are larger and a little more aggravated and he didn't want me to be uncomfortable. When they pull the tube out more than likely your eye on the same side the tube goes in will water, but other than that, there was really nothing to it. I go back tomorrow and I don't really want to have it done again, but if he does, it really isn't painful or panicky. I just couldn't get an appointment while my 6 yr. old is in school, so I am going to have him with me, so hopefully I can get in and out.
Anyway, don't worry about that test it really isn't bad and they get it over with very quickly.
