My intraoral surgery was in August 26th. I have intense and constant left ear pain that I did not have before. Pain is not subsiding at all. Dr says my nerves were monitored and he did not hit a nerve. Then, why I am in so much pain? Scar tissue compressing a nerve? Scar is intraoral. How to release it. I feel no pain when touching my scar.
I am really depressed and exhausted. Have been searching on this forum for someone who had ear pain post surgery but all I find are different issues (first bite sindrome, droop/ crooked lips, eyes, etc) but not constant ear pain. If you had this issue or any other constant pain because of surgery, PLEASE tell me how you are feeling.
Even if my pain is not gradually subsiding do you think it will? Somebody had this experience?
My body can not take any more meds. I have tried all sorts of them, even metadona! OMG! I have never been so desperate.
I have a glossopharyngeal nerve block scheduled for tonight and I dont know if I should do it as my surgery was less than 4 months ago. Anybody has some input?
