Yesterday I had 2 appointments at MGH and Mass Eye and Ear. I saw ENT first at MEEI for my vocal cord dysfunction and my huge lingual tonsils. My favorite part of going to that office is the view - the windows face south west and you can see the entire city of Boston past the Charles River. The ENT was glad I haven't had any significant vocal cord issues and didn't even scope me! I hate those scopes - they go up my nose and down my throat and cause serious gagging. I don't have to go back to that office until October!
I spent some time in between appointments at Starbucks with a passion tea lemonade and a chocolate chip cookie, then headed back to MGH.
I saw the urologist next, to talk about kidney stones, parathyroid levels, and a 24 hr urine test. Everything checked out ok there, and unless I have any major issues, I will see her in a year after another renal ultrasound.
Overall, a good appointment day, minus the traffic in and out of Boston.
Which appointments do you dread? Doesn't it feel nice to cross specialties off the list until next year?
