It seems to me that ever since the ear tubes were put in my ears, that this pain has gotten so unbearable. The left one had to be replaced after 6 days because it was blocked with blood and whatever. Since then, the pain has increased and is on the good side on my face , jaw and throat. It's nice to give the right side a break from being painful, but this left side is getting to be very bad. I am wondering if the tubes can be the cause of this? This pain makes fun of pain meds. Any ideas anyone? I know that I need a biopsy there but I keep hearing about being put to sleep too many times. I tell them for every minute I am out that I get one extra month to live. LOL
