Hi all, just seeking some advice.
I’m 1 week into recovery following a wall down surgery: currently my ear is weeping quite a bit, like bloody watery discharge and is still swollen & stuck out. It’s tight and numb to the touch, causing a lot of discomfort when laughing/moving. The tightness is at the top (there was a tear in the back due to weakness from a previous surgery during the op) ... but the tip of my ear feels hot and is throbbing. I also have been experiencing sharp pains toward the base of my skull (back of head on the left side) and to top it all off my jaw is weak so still on soft foods only! ???????
I’m due to have the packing removed in 2 weeks time and seem to be managing the pain relatively well but am starting to worry that I’m showing signs of an infection. Does all of this seem relatively normal or should I make an appointment with my GP? Just concerned that there’s another 2 weeks to go before anyone takes a look at it! Also, am due at work next week, little anxious- how was everyone else around the 2 week mark?
Many thanks in advance
