Hello Hunna, I notice that my last reply to you a long time ago didn't "take". I don't know why. I hope you are doing better and the pain has eased somewhat by now. I have thought of you often and I guess we need to be grateful that things were not worse! I still have some pain, my neck cords still stand out and are uncomfortable, but better now. The stitches did not dissolve. They had to be removed and where they were, are now bumps -- quite hard ones. I still feel some prickle (stitches) behind my earlobes and above my ears. I'm to go back in two months, so I guess if those have not dissolved by then, they will also be removed which is a little bit painful and causes bleeding. I'm still extremely numb and so far, that hasn't changed. My earlobes feel "dead" and fat, though they look normal. I can't get earrings into my pierced earlobes. Anyway...that is the update as of the day after tomorrow two months post op. How are you doing now? I know it has been many many weeks for you and I truly hope you are feeling more comfortable week by week. Please let me know; I care. Sorry it has been so long since I wrote. I hope this message takes.

HI
IT HAS been 3 months now- my ears still are a bit tender- can't wear heavy earrings= neck is the worst - hurts- stiff and left cheek still some lumps- god- my Dr has hinted that it can be a year till all resolves- I am 68- he says you heal at slower rate after 60- so who gets a face lift at 40??? Ha Ha- I am trying to be patient- still hurts if someone kisses me on cheek - I turn away and say I had dental work.
Let me know what is happening.

Hi Marg,

My name is Alexandeer. I had my mini face lift, laser on my face and a neck lift. I have had problems with one thing or another since the surgery. My ears were bothering me from the start. When I swallowed, there was a sound there every time I swallowed. They just felt strange. I spoke with the ps and said I don't have any idea what it could be. From there about 4 weeks later I developed a plugged feeling in my left ear. A week later a had a severe case of vertigo. I went to my internist and he checked my ear for a infection or wax build up and neither was the case. It went away for about a month and now it is back even worse. My left ear is so plugged and the pressure seems to build up in the ear and then I get a severe vertigo attack, the ear seems to open up and then a couple of days later the whole cycle starts again. I am quite certain after getting on this site that this is all from my surgery. I also had the tightness so bad that I could not look from side to side, nor could I tilt my head back. I am going back to my internist this week. I am sure that he will send me to a ENT specialist. The tightness has improved. I am still considerably numb around my ears, face and under my chin. You mentioned that you started to get vertigo. Do you still experience it. If there is anyone else that is experiencing vertigo with a plugged ear and extreme pressure, I would appreciate hearing from you.
