Mattie had a eyelid chalazion cyst removed from her right eye today. She also had an EGD, or Esophagogastroduodenoscopy for those of you that like big words. 🙂 This was our first procedure requiring anesthesia since our mitochondrial myopathy diagnosis. I was a bit of a nervous wreck, but the hospital staff was amazing. They had all of the information on Mito and took great care of M. They had some difficulty with her intubation. She came back with a bloody nose and a black eye. She looked like she had been in a boxing match. Anesthesia was a bit of a bugger…but we had a great anesthesiologist!
The removal of the chalazion went well. They expect that the eye will be black and blue for a few days. We will go in next week for a quick check up. The eye is a little scratchy, but doesn’t seem to be causing her any pain.
Her EGD did show some inflammation in her Esophagus. The doctor told me that they would have the biopsy results back sometime next week. She said that would show us if the inflammation is from acid or allergy. Once we know what is causing it we will come up with a plan to fix it. I am thankful after 6 years of reflux medication that we will finally be getting some answers as to what is causing her pain.
All in all it was a pleasant experience and we are glad to have it over with. I will post an update again once we see the eye doc and get the biopsy results. Thanks for you prayer.
