Numbness remains after surgery

Posted , 5 users are following.

How long should I expect numbness after surgery to remove a tumor in my left parotid gland? Numbness of my ear and sections, of my face and neck, this will be week 6.

Thanks

    Hi,

    It might take a long while and I was warned I might not get sensation in my ear lobe again. My sensation gradually came back and to be honest, I got use to it feeling different and didn't notice. I'm 14 months post op and I think I have normal sensation everywhere now. Good luck.

      Waiting for a final diagnosis, they've eliminated non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma but not Hodgkin's Lymphoma or Sjogren's Syndrome. Not sure why it is taking so long to get a final diagnosis.
