Well, I had my ENT follow-up visit. He assured me that nothing is wrong with my throat (no cancer
, nodules, etc.etc.). CT is normal, chest X-ray normal. Tonsils are very large (have been since I was a child but THEY ARE NOT causing my cough. Says my Acid Reflux (GERD) is not under control with my current meds (Prevacid 20 mg) so he prescribed additional meds (Zegerid 40 mg). He explained to me how the acid backs up in the esophagus into the throat and causes the cough.
