Given that my ENT surgeon prescribed prednisone following my throat dilatation surgery, I had another sleepless night last night. Despite being exhausted, I was tossing and turning for hours. Prednisone always makes me feel both “wired and tired.” I’m still continuing to clear my throat repeatedly after this procedure.
Thankfully, I have minimal pain at this point. It’s wonderful to have a wide-open airway once again. I forgot that prednisone increases acid reflux, so I’m dealing with those increased symptoms, too. I’ll be very relieved when I finally feel back to my baseline.
