Neck lift local anesthesia

Common Questions and Answers about Neck lift local anesthesia

neck

I have no pain in the nodes themselves but have developed pain in the neck which seems like a stiff neck, and pain exists with any pressure from straining or lifting, also movement related pain in neck, chest and spine in the same region. No signs of infection at all, but do have extreme fatigue, back pain, some weight loss, among other varied symptoms. My Primary Dr said since no other enlarged nodes were found in other regions, he is not concerned about lymphoma.
The pain finally diminished, but about a month later it started in my right neck. The pain now runs all the way down my neck and into my shoulder and right chest a bit. It especially hurts if I apply pressure to my pulse(Carotid artery). It feels like inflammed nerves or something. So, I went back to another doctor and he gave the same diagnosis. He said unfortunatley the cause is unknown. Now I am on a stronger anti-inflammatory. I just want to know the cause so it won't come back.
I HAVE NECK PAIN FROM TIME TO TIME. MY LOCAL CHIROPRACTOR IS TRAINED TO ADJUST FUSED NECKS THAT IS A TRMENDOUS HELP. WHEN THE PAIN GETS REAL BAD FROM TIME TO TIME ICE ON THE BACK OF MY NECK AND A HEATING PAD ACCROSS MY SHOULDERS IS THE ONLY THING THAT HELPS WITH THE PAIN THAT AND A MILD MUSCLE RELAXER. THE ICE AND HEAT HAVE TO BE APPLIED AT THE SAME TIME.
I had a mid face lift and neck lift in August 2007. It was done under local anesthesia and I was aware of everything going on. He started with the neck left and during it he stated "we have a bleeder" at that time he started working very fast and put a tube into the incision and I could see blood being sucked out of my neck area and he cauterized the bleeder. I was left with extensive bruising and a huge hemotoma under my chin on the left side.
I hated the feeling of not being able to move you try to lift your legs n just pins n needles. The injection when inserted wont to bad just you have to stay relaxed and it made me wont to tense up felt bit like if you have a sweet tooth but all down your spine. I personal wouldnt recommend it or have it again. Plus the pain is part of the experience i belive but i know everyone is different just my personal opion.
My only complaint was the 3 month wait due to the surgeon's schedule. That alone told me something! My surgery took 16 minutes, skin to skin. Local sedation for anesthesia. (no ET tube down your throat) I left the hospital about an hour and half after surgery and went out to lunch. Before you ask, no, I am not affiliated with the surgeon nor the hospital. My local doctor here in VA suggested a local ENT doctor- great surgeon and well thought of in my community.
I was sent then to a local worlers comp doctor. He thought throwing valium and hydrocodone at me was the answer. He wanted to blindly administer an epidural shot which i refused. Next he offered therapy still with no diagnostics. I contacted my claim manager and demanded to see an ortho doc. They pulled one over and me and instead sent me to a pain mgt. doc in an ortho group. he finally ordered an MRI showing two herniated discs.
For as long as I can remember, I have had a problem with my hyoid bone popping out and causing excrutiating pain. It is always the same - the right side of my neck. At about the age of 8 I talked to my pediatrician about it and he promptly told me it was not possible. That I was having anything "pop out" in my neck. He contended that there wasn't anything there that could pop out. So I just continued to push it back into place whenever it popped out.
I am recovering and except for taking 2 hydrocodone and the scar on my neck, you can not tell that I had surgery. By the 20th of Oct. I was helping my wife with dishes, I drove my pick-up, and feel very well. Today is October 30th and I was raking leaves. I still take it easy, but I was blessed by having an excellent doctor. Since the surgery I don't have the daily headaches, my arm pain comes and goes but is not as bad as before the surgery.
He's been up and around since the evening of the surgery, but he isn't allowed to bend or lift anything over 10 pounds. This is a relatively common surgery that apparently usually has good results. Good luck if you hav it done.
im always burping and dr didnt find anythingbut my troat hurts like hell and my neck is sore i thunk im just in need of a new neck!
Don't want to steer you wrong, but while I was at the hospital for my tilt table test, there was a lady next to me having an ablation and I believe she was awake for the procedure, though I think they gave her local anesthesia. It didn't seem like it was a huge deal to her, though I think she had some soreness afterward. It's been a lot of years since then, and my memory may be faulty.
He continues to have headaches and back/neck pain, that is sometimes/sometimes not, controlled by meds. He is getting his staples out later today. I have time off from work, thankfully, and I stayed the entire time he was in the hospital. Hope everyone else is doing well.
i'm one of those gals that 'wants to know NOW', sorry. My surgery is an 'outpatient' one at a local hospital, they said i'd be home by late afternoon at the latest (providing there's no 'issues') but i'd be 'out of pocket/recovering' for at least 3-4 days....NOT WEEKS....are they wrong with that diagnosis? I really need to know, i'm the only one that works here in my office (it's a company that has two venues) and I do 'everything' and there's NO replacement or stand in.
Somthing that can also help is warm steam towels around your shoulders and neck. Don't drink anything too cold and some over the counter analgesics will have the added benifit of caffine, in case the thought of coffee at this stage of the pain you are in makes you want to get sick. I do hope that you feel better soon. Lay down and do not get up but to go urinate or have a BM and of you do need to have a BM DO NOT STRAIN! Take care and post as soon as you feel better.
Many people who started on the stadol ns became addicts. It may take some time for the fog to lift. Sometimes, I think addicts are like square pegs when the world is full of round holes. We just do not fit into every catagory as others. There is a class action suit against stadol ns. You might check into it. The internet will inform you of some attorneys taking clients for the suit. Good Luck. You can make it through the disruptive physical symptoms.
I just had the excision of the ectopic breast tissue on my left and right underarm 2 weeks ago. I have 6" incisions on both underarms and the right excision is doing much better than my left. I still feel limited mobility on both my arms when i try to raise them. I feel it more when i am not wearing a bra. Trying to shampoo my hair every morning just hasn't been the same. I feel like the skin in my underam is being stretched and pulled when i try to raise them.
They would only do an MRI of my neck because they claimed the numbness in my right arm HAD to be from my neck. This doesn't make sense because the center of my pain is in the middle of my back, to the right of my spine, just underneath my shoulderblade. They found bulging disks in my neck but based on what you guys are saying here, I'm concerned I may have herniated a disk much lower than they were willing to look at. I have a new provider which is PPO so I will have to make an appointment.
Respiratory problems need not necessarily prevent someone from having general anesthesia. Asthma patients can have anesthesia, with extra special care. Of course, there are other respiratory problems, such as C.O.P.D., which can also be safely managed under general anesthesia. I know this, because I've given patients anesthesia with such problems, and they've done well postoperatively. Ask lots of questions of your caregivers. I'm a retired nurse anesthetist.
Violent Emesis and not being able to lift my head from my pillow. I simply CAN NOT be sick. My children and husband rely on me to be able to run the house hold. I have not drove our vehicle anywhere because I have just felt so dizzy and afraid that I would cause a wreck. I am so tired of this and I just want to function like a normal human being. I have even cried in my husband's arms over this. Ugh! I just hope and pray my baby is ok from this and I have not done any damage to him/her.
) so can not take meds or get an MRI, but am going to a neurologist asap and will ask for MRI after baby is born. I am athletic (tho no known neck/back problems), and have also spent a lot of time outside and in the sun. I now live in Austin, Texas, also a sunny climate (but more humid than Colorado), and the dreaded itch came back about a month ago. I can not bear the thought of living with this for the rest of my life.
I made myself walk around the house to help gas escape faster and believe me it helped. My bellybutton is still sore but as long as I don't lift anything heavy I feel fine. Every one is different however so LISTEN to your body and do not rush YOUR healing process. Best wishes and hopefully speedy recovery...
I just had an internal hemorroid banded yesterday and a very large skin tag removed yesterday. Ouch the skin tag removal was very painful getting the local injections. Once the local wore off I've been in a lot of pain. I've had to take the pain meds the doctor prescribed. My poor butt looks like a crater like some other people in the posts mentioned. I hope the swelling goes down soon. The assistant said it would look like that and that the swelling will go down in about 4 weeks.
Upon returning home I was still having my Laparotomy wound (51 staples) packed by the local District nurses as that had also opened up in five areas into what the nurses called Sinus cavities. It is now 5 months since my surgery. I can very much appreciate how you feel! My stomach (which I have always strived to keep flat & firm) also bloats up as the day goes on. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat.
The anesthesia they use is typically a conscious anesthesia. You're not out completely, there's no breathing tube involved. It's a med that just makes you relax and fade in and out. As for constipation or dehydration, each time I was in they put in an IV for fluids plus used it for the meds. Being dry shouldn't have been a problem. If you were taking any pain meds, that typically causes constipation which is why I don't use them, even after my abdominal surgery.
BOTOX INJECTIONS (NOT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED), KEEPING YOUR THROAT MOIST AT ALL TIMES, ANTIBIOTIC IF A INFECTION (LARYNGITIS), AND BREATH ONLY THRU THE NOSE I HAD SILENT ACID REFLUX, HAD A SPINAL FUSION-THRU THE NECK AND HAD A VIRUS THAT CAUSED DAMAGE TO THE CORDS. HOPE SOME OF THIS HELPS!
From the comments on this thread I would strongly advise that THIS PROCEDURE SHOULD NOT BE DONE BY YOUR LOCAL ELECTRO-PHYSIOLOGIST! I obsessed on research and finally went to the Cleveland Clinic. I am now 2+ weeks out from the procedure and, lord knows, I could still run in to rhythm problems (as they have warned me as they do every patient), but so far things are smooth. Think about it. This is a very tricky deal and you want someone who does it all day every day every week.
