I have been having trouble with a few salivary glands both sides. I had a swelling on the right side last year and then started to feel like a slither of glass on the left submandibular gland a few months after that.
I went to my gp who gave me antibiotics and said the gland was infected. After taking them I got frequent swellings after meals and a blocked sensation in ear.
I was messing one day looking with a mirror and could see plainly the slither sticking through my gland so I sucked lemons, watched you tubes of stone removals and removed the stone myself. My face swelling took a day or so to go down and I kept the stone. I went back to my gp who referred me to max facial to check for anymore.
I had a silogram done in December and although the man was adamant there was a stone, he said he could see it, afterwards he said it was ok??
My swelling keeps happening now and a yellow spot on the gland keeps popping up. I am due to go back to max facial next week as they did say if I could not manage it they would have no option than to remove the gland.
I don't want the gland removing if it's just a stone but surely the silogram would have seen it? Could they do any other test to look for another stone because I know there is definitely one in there. We can all see it except max facial said not?
