Scan-iel Peake!

Recently I’ve been having difficulty with breathing – nothing major (obviously, I’m still here!), just a near-permanent blocked nose that probably makes me snore like a trooper at night.

I saw the doctor about this back in the late summer / early autumn and finally it was found to be a polyp in the right side of my nose. It’s basically like having a pea in my my nose. Quite excitingly, I had a CT scan this week so that they could work out how to remove it. The machine was very cool, you lie down and are put in the centre of this donut type thing, it spins around you, and it’s over before it’s begun.

Apparently they built up a 3D image of my sinuses and I’ll hear how they’ll remove the polyp within two weeks. The tests on whether they could find a brain in my head remain inconclusive. Speaking of which, is it weird that I’ve called it Polly the Polyp?

Oh. It is.
