Neck lift local anesthesia

Common Questions and Answers about Neck lift local anesthesia


Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn it started getting harder to get my eyes in focus i have 4 eye floaters and i used to only have one and i get minor headaches in the back of my head and my jaw started feeling like someone was sitting on it and on top of this i got sick like 1 month and a week ago with a sinus and throat infection which like 3 days before i got sick i started getting neck pain (the neck pain's the worse when I lift my head up looking down doesn't feel bad at all in fact it relieves some of the pressure) and my
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn My implant doctor will do it with just local anesthesia and this scares the heck out of me. Of course, oral dentist tells me he will not remove them if he doesn't see a problem with them ... no matter what I say. It's not his work so I am not going to press him. On Thursday, I am going for the Melissa test. I'm concerned about spending this amount of money because some people say it comes back "negative" and they still have problems.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn although I have been forcing myself to take it easy. The local lidocaine wore off within about 2 hours after the RFA, and I have been giving myself NSAIDs and continuing to ice the area, which now doesn't feel too bad -- just some local swelling and muscle spasms. I don't mind any amount of pain from the actual procedure because I know this will eventually go away ...
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Can anyone offer me information on the scarring and what to expect from the procedure itself when it is inserted? Do they just use local? Does it hurt? Is it like a surgery? Please...any information will help. Thanks!
555358 tn?1292535661 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.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar f tn 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.
486038 tn?1300066967 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have to lie down to get relief, but I have lied down with my neck on a pillow for so long that I strained my neck and my fingers and left arm started to tingle. Any suggestions anybody?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn I found this forum 3 or four months ago and began occupational rehabilitation therapy after reading the post about somatoform syndrome. This has been a big help with relieving the neck pain and building better postural strength so that I can actually sit in a healthy position while driving i.e. not slumped forward with my neck tilted and pinched at the back - basically retraining my body so as to get rid of all the old bad muscle memory.
Avatar f tn ) 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.
Avatar n tn 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...
93210 tn?1287457826 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
