What is involved in draining parotid gland?
was diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome, about 3 years ago. Decided, after a month, to not continue with medication that was prescribed. Terrible side effects & instilled a lot of fear that I would ruin liver & eyes. Have tried alternative treatments - homeopathy, vitamins, nutrition, energy healing & chinese herbal medicine to name a few.
My energy still fluctuates, sometimes dizziness & nausea, skin problems, dry eyes,dry mouth. Waking up to a swollen parotid gland on the side of my face every morning is getting quite depressing. So I'm asking - Would draining the parotid gland be a good & successful solution, & what is involved- Does it leave a scar? Is it painful? Is it day surgery?etc etc etc.............
