Shindig, a few observations, (BTW my pics post op 3 months now, numbness for most part gone, swallowing a bit better -wehever they had to mess with muscles during incisions, they can and do go numb, it takes time to regrow nerve fibers, I was sent home with a feeding tube, hard time dealing with swallowing water and food an having it come thru nose, choking me-meds had to be ground down to swallow with water) the other post op pic taken at hosp, shows redness, as I have lyem/Lupus Sjogren's no one knows why adhesives make me break out red or blister-see also a pic done for skin biopsy that actually blistered-never had problems as kid with adhesive bandaids, as adult_big time blistering!) go figure?! second two pics will be added to next message this will allow edit only to typing not pics adding!)
did they do anything at all for the Tolosa Hunt? besides steroids? friend of mine went to CA for some help on a PTi tumor, I amy be headed to CA as well for Empty Nose syndrome! I make no sinus contents whatsoever except when infected with Klebsiella, Staph & Moraxella! (hospitalized 3x in 2012 for pneumonia nd once post thryoidectomy this year alone!) sick of being sick! Low IgG as well, when does it end! (dry form Sjogren's tha tI tested ENG for but am dxd based on signs symptoms, like salivary stones, poor parotid uptake, pancreatitis etc)
1) read some of my posts on MRI's with contrast if you have had them they can ADD to pain FYI:
2) I had some elongation of styloids Dr Cognetti wasn't sure was long enough and feeling for them he was not convinced either, it was the panorax that showed the elongation, he felt if they were long on left he would entertain doing the right, BTW I had a thyroid cancer/styloidectomy, with some tissue retained from the thyroid incision which is why it appears ticker than the styloid on left-, but it is healing very well) or investigations as to whether Gadolinium (from MRI's) was in tissue IT WAS tho noT enuf to prove it has poisoned me, BELIEVE ME IT HAS, I am7 years post mast MRI and have high amounts of drug in me causing tissue/skin fibrosis? ITS THSE GAD AND HAS ALWAYS been the GAD not FIBROMYALGIA yes GAD! POisON! Spent 4 yrs bedridden with Lyme go the MRIs it caused me more pain and suffering but I have good pain control because my docs believed me, for that I am grateful. But I Once had BCBS call me at home telling me, "If we GET 3 docs to TELL you that you have NOTHIGN wrong with you, are you GOING TO DROP THIS?! They wanted me to be scared and not get a full diagnosis, for which a $5.00 antibiotic is looking really cheap right now-they've spent $68,000.00 on em so far this year, THAT is their discount rate...maybe 20% of what it would cost without insurance. The entire medical community needs to be overhauled form pain control to starting to develop a board certification in DIagnosticians...Ive had three docs tell me I knew more about my conditions than they did, such a shame I never even went to college never mind med school.
3) when Cognetti (Philly Jefferson Hosp) took L styloid < IT WAS CALCIFIED, he had to use tools couldn't brea with fingers, this proves correlation to calcification, which toxic heavy metal Gadoliniumc ould cause. HE is heavily aware forma patient self study we did, that the GADOLINIUM can affect patients and this alone should be a consideration of rALL OF US EVER HAVING HAD AN MRI W/CONTRAST, if you look up "Heavy metal poisoning symptoms, you will see what it is like!
SO cool it on MRIs with contrast POST MRI w/contrast MRIs can also MOVE AROUND previously done MRI's with contrast so I MO, it can still harm, jeu tshotting localized GAD from one organ to next ( I have yellowing in left eye clear sign of GAD, etc)
it has also caused some bloodflow issues that are now jeu teeing discovered as only having 40% flow ( I had some testing down this past week awaiting some results)
I developed fibrosis of bowel most likely either from both MRI's with contrast (had 7 of them!) CREON taken for pancreatitis from SJogren's syndrome to from the many years of Paxil Elavil Effexor, Neurontin, Bayocl Vioxx & Zelnorm (taken all of market the last 3!) (all they do is pack on pounds making us bedridden zombies)
I am leaving a few links here about getting proper care for pain, check this site out, PAIN is a condition in and of itself no matter where the pain is emanating from and needs to be treated, no one should have to tough it out; do pain meds cause other issues yes, as long as there is no abuse of the med, it should be given so you can have quality of life. Being almost suicidal from pain is no way to live!
I a also finding out about some types of carotid malformations that can affect blood flow and cause spasming as well (Id been self dxd as needing MVD< the Styloid surgery has helped SOME, but I am still spasming and can alleviate my pain upon acupressure, but cannot sit in bed all day with a ball at the back of my head (Search red ball and posts on that) here...
here are the link, please review ALL of your stidues, let us know how many MRI's with contrast you have had, if you want to have blood and urine tested, you can go to local hosp they can do senouts to Mayo and you will know within one week if you have HIGHG levels of GAD in you, then TAT is that start of all the fund (i've had nine biopsies done for derma fibrosis-two proved GAD and two proved "focal dermal fibrosis and focal dermal fibrosis with increased mucin) many doscs refuse to believe those with kidneys without disease processes going on PRIOR to MRIs are having issues now and if the docs have missed Kid Dis, then that is their fault either way, docs have to become more aware of what they are doing to our bodies. .s:

$5 Million Verdict In The First Gadolinium Injury Trial
Tags: claims, Gadolinium Verdict, GE Healthcare, lawsuit, lawyer, litigation, Product Liability
A federal jury in Ohio has awarded $5 million in the first case to go to trial in the multi district litigation involving patients who claim injury from the body scan contrast agent gadolinium. The jury found that GE Healthcare failed to provide adequate warnings of the health risk posed to those with impaired kidney function from Omniscan. As we have reported, the GE product is a gadolinium-based contrast dye used in MRIs and other imaging scans. The plaintiff in the case, Paul Decker, contracted a debilitating skin disease — nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) — as a result of being injected with Omniscan for a magnetic resonance angiogram in 2005. At the time, Decker was also undergoing dialysis for end-stage kidney disease.
and it (GADOLINIUM is in our water by virtue of a ll that we pee out when we get incepted to ur veins, I personally know of an infant with GAD in them...that NEVER had RI so sad!)
let me know if you have any questions!
