Blocked Salivary Gland

Posted , 3 users are following.

Has anyone had stones removed by incision?  This is the next step for me.  I had the ultrasound where nothing could be seen and then the scan where stones were found.  They tried to prod them out but with no success.  My GP has referred me to ENT to have an incision done.

    Sorry to hear  that. You could search on google if you wish to know about the proceedure. I have hard lump in my gland for 4 years now, GP said it is infection, could be stone too. 

    Please update on your progress! Good lucksmile

      Thank you.  I've had it for a few months now.  It hasn't bothered me up until now,  starting to burn on the base under my tongue whenever I eat.  The hospital or my GP didn't really explain what will happen. Some of the videos on google are quite gruesome.  I'm just hoping it's going to be something simple.  Have you had medication for the infection?

      I've had some antibiotics when it got inflammed 2 years ago. This became painful and swollen. A week later since the treatment, this has eventually subsided. I often worry about, since doctors dont say something certain.. Hope you will get better soon. I dont think the proceedure is that gruesome. stay in peace!
