For many years I have had acid reflux. Last year I went to an ENT doctor for a sinus infection-while there he did a scope of my throat and found polyps-benign but wanted to remove them and have them tested.

Well I procrastinated for a year and Oct. 10th went in for what he and I thought were 2 polyps. Poor guy was in shock as I had a massive amount of them. Surgery was absolutely painless.

He told me I could have eventually suffocated in my sleep or just aspirated from walking as my windpipe was so blocked 9also choke to death).

If you or anyone you know suffers from this please have it checked. The only side effect I've had was 3 weeks with no voice but it's coming back now.
