IF ANYONE OUT THERE CAN HELP ME WITH THIS I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT. BASICALLY MY MUM HAS HAD FACIAL PAIN, SICKNESS AND DIZZYNESS (MAY BE DUE TO STRONG PAIN KILLERS), NUMEROUS TEETH OUT, SPLINTS ETC. TO NO AVAIL FOR 2 YEARS NOW. SHE GETS A THROBBING AND PAIN IN HER FACE CONTINUALLY AND HAS SEEN NUMEROUS SPECIALISTS. RECENTLY, SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A CHOLOSTEATOMA, WHICH IS A GROWTH LOCATED WITHIN THE EAR. SHE WAS TOLD THAT THIS MAY BE HAVING NO AFFECT ON THE NERVES IN HER FACE BUT IT WAS ON THE SAME SIDE AS MOST OF THE PAIN SO THEY THOUGHT IT WAS A POSSIBILITY. SHE WAS TOLD THAT IF SHE DIDN'T HAVE IT REMOVED THEN IT WOULD GROW INTO HER BRAIN (IT WAS FROM AN MR SCAN THAT SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A GROWTH). SO, SHE WAS SCHEDULED IN FOR THE SURGERY WITHIN A FEW WEEKS. SHE HAD THIS DONE ON MONDAY AND WAS TOLD YESTERDAY THAT THEY WENT INTO HER EAR BUT THERE WAS NOTHING THERE, ONLY SCAR TISSUE FROM A PERFORATED EAR DRUM SHE SUFFERED AS A CHILD. WE JUST CANNOT UNDERSTAND HOW SHE HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED, TOLD OF THE PROCEDURE AND RISKS ETC., HAD NUMEROUS DOCTORS LOOK IN HER EAR AND SAY THAT THEY CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE 'CHOLOSTEATOMA'AND THEN HAVE NOTHING REMOVED AND COME OUT OF HOSPITAL IN EXACTLY THE SAME STATE AS SHE WENT IN - DIZZY, SICK, FACIAL PAIN ETC. SHE HAS ACTUALLY COME OUT WORSE BECAUSE THEY THINK THAT THE CARBAMAZAPINE SHE IS TAKING FOR HER FACIAL PAIN IS CAUSING HER SICKNESS AND DIZZINESS. WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHERE IS THIS GROWTH IF IT ISN'T IN HER HEAR. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE. IF ANYBODY KNOWS ANYONE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION PLEASE POST A MESSAGE.
