| | nerve damage
I had a lower face lift performed last December, and I'm now suffering from nerve damage on the right side. My lower lip was paralyzed for several months, and that has resolved, but my right ear is still tender and painful. I can't sleep on that ear, or wear earrings, or headphones, etc. Hurts to pull shirts over my head. I still carry some fluid under my chin on that side. Have a large, red scar behind that ear. Began as a huge lump of tissue and has gone down, but I'm getting frantic about the continued discomfort.
What can I do to address this? Can it be fixed? I also have problems with one breast implant that was performed at the same time. The left breast has settled beautifully, but the right is hard and uncomfortable. I have raised both of these issues to my plastic surgeon over the last year, and have not gotten good answers. Help!
