Just wanted to let my fellow ES patients know that I will be having surgery this Tuesday, Sept 9th. It will be in London, Ontario, Canada, with Dr Yoo. He is the Chief ENT here, and this will be his first ES surgery. By all accounts he is an outstanding surgeon, and I am grateful that he is taking this on. He will be doing the external approach on my left side, and if that goes well, he says he will also do the right side. Looking forward to reporting back to you later this week- I am hoping to have good news for you. Its been 6 years since my original symptoms, and 2 years since my diagnosis- so a long road all in all. I'm grateful for the support found from people on this site. Its good to hear your stories and share this experience with people who really understand. Good luck to all of you!!
