Avatar m tn Dr Taylor said it would firm up don’t worry. Never did firm up so I had a skin graft by a local dentist to pull up the loose tissue. I just couldn’t afford the four hour trips to Gainesville. Pain is still with me I went back to dentist to see if more grafts had to be done he said no. Said everything was healing fine. Yet still it hurts the pain is more on some day and less on others.
Avatar n tn He said that for plastic surgery i would have to have skin grafts and it would leave a pretty big scar, A scar that a 13 year old girl wouldn't want on the side of her face. They don't get my point of view though, a scar is just as bad as this, and I am really scared that I will develop cancer from it. Good luck to everyone else though, I hope everything goes good with you guys.
Avatar m tn i would love to know when this shape change will end as its taken over my life..its almost an obsession!! ive asked about skin grafts and fillers but nobody will risk making it look any worse.
Avatar f tn Six long and very difficult years later, physically and emotionally, and 20 facial reconstruction surgeries later, I'm as ok as I'm going to get. My back is similar to yours. T 3, 5 & 7 burst fractures. Entire thoracic spine fused, rods from C6 to waist. Because of the fusion and rods bolted onto my ribs, when my back hurts alot, the pain wraps around to my chest. All I can do is lay down. I don't do drugs because I researched them, and my opinion of them was confirmed.
Avatar n tn Since the metal is on the INSIDE of the body, don't do the skin tests, but have the blood test done. You may need to call around to see who in your area does this type of allergy testing as not every office does.
Avatar f tn The symptoms I have experienced have been intense facial and head pain, along with masses which is the inflammation. I am on the pain patch to control the pain to a tolerable level. My doctor has been in contact with a doctor in the MayoClinic in MN, the doctor has written reports on this disease and is treating 8 patients with it, he is also using the rituxan treatment. Very recently I have been experiencing new symptoms that worry me, I have been getting pressure in my head...
Avatar n tn I am allowed to walk (no treadmill) but NO exercise/pt for 6 months till the bone grafts are set. I have slept like a baby on and off the meds since I came home two days after surgery. I have not slept like that for the past 4 years even with sleeping pills. I cannot lift more than 5 pounds for 6 months. I am off all pain meds. I may take one at night once a week.
Avatar f tn Placing permanent metal dental implants in allergic patients can provoke type IV or I reactions. Several symptoms have been described, from skin rashes and implant failure, to non-specific immune suppression. Objective: Our objective was to evaluate the presence of titanium allergy by the anamnesis and examination of patients, together with the selective use of cutaneous and epicutaneous testing, in patients treated with or intending to receive dental implants of such material.
