Today at USC Keck.
ENT Doctor: “what surgeries have you had?”
Me: “tonsils, appendix, gallbladder, a lot of scopes, polyps in numerous places…”
ENT Doctor: “any other surgeries?”
ENT thinks for a moment then starts examining my neck and throat..
ENT Doctor: “Hmmmm….” feels neck a little more, pauses to look at my neck from the outside too,
“have you had a [xyz] gland removed?”
Oops, oh ya, that surgery too 🤪.
Look on his face was priceless: really Ms. ******, you’re here at an ENT office and you forget to mention your ENT surgery?
I smiled kind of sheepishly then tried to explain to him when something in my medical history isn’t particularly painful or memorable, I tend to forget it…
There’s just too much going on to keep it all in my little brain 😝.
This is why I like to do everything at Cedars ❤️
