As survivors we need to be on watch about possible infections that can happen at anytime and to any one of us. As most of you know I have been having very bad pain in my head for the passed many months, I have seen 2 different Oncal doc’s and 3 ENT’s about the pain and none of them could find anything wrong. Well never give up is what I always say. My wife and I found another 4th ENT doc at the Houston Medical Center; I told him nothing at first about me having Cancer because I needed him to give me an open opinion about my pain.
After he looked into my ear he realized that there was a lot more to the story and so I told him yes I had Cancer at one times in my life but on my last PET at MD Anderson I showed that I was Cancer free.
After he finished his examination he told us that I have a very bad Bilateral Mastoid Infection, I ask him to explain what he was talking about, and he did a very good job at that.
Most if not all of my pain in the head for the passed many months could be coming from this Infection. He has me on some very strong antibiotics trying to kill the infection. I am glad that we were persistence and did not give up when first told possible just more side affects of your treatment.
If any of you are suffering with pain in your head get your ENT to check you for possible Mastoid Infection and don’t give up until you are satisfied that you have an answer. I know that as a survivor my life has pain in it that I must learn to live with; I just don’t need any additional pain.
Take care my friends, I am hopping for the pains to start to ease up some over the next few days.
