So I'm starting to feel the same ear pain when I yawn that I used to get. It has me worried. I'm do for a scan at MHG anyway and will be going in the next week probably but I was wondering if anyone had any input concering post TX ear pain.
Thanks

Will

I sometimes get ear pain... Not all the time - if it's continuous have it looked at but rads causes fibrosis of the muscles, etc. so there are ocassionally some tender area. Ear paini find sometimes happens when I drink something, I think my swallow is off and it sometimes backwashes into my ear canal... Or you may just have an ear infection... Definitely have it checked out. Hugs - hopefully its nothing.

MaineWill,

Good luck with your scan. I have been there with the earpain. I pray it is nothing. I know the feeling. my last scan was not clear due to radiation. Next scan May 4th. Waiting is the hardest part. Again my thoughts are with you.

Sorry to hear you are having a problem. Please dont panic yet! Scar tissue can be a tricky thing and sure play some tricks on you making you think something is alot more serious than it is. Hope you can find some relief very soon. Please check back with your results no matter what they are. You have your OCF pals in your corner!
