Norwood, remind me never to go to the gym with you! :)


I was going to take some pics but I've been a bit red and puffy, I'll take some pics tomorrow and upload them. 

On a different note, I had some major swelling and pain behind the ears the day after my treatment and thought I had a pretty major infection. The bone itself was excruciatingly sore and the surrounding tissue was raised and red. Just Google 'mastoiditis' and search images to see what I had. Now being half way across the world in a country where most people don't know a word of English and having what I thought was a pretty serious condition was really concerning. I figured I was either very sick or the facial nerves had been excited so much that they caused some inflammation and an immune response in my mastoid bone (posterior jaw region). This was not a case of swollen lump nodes, this was something more painful and far larger. 

 I know my anatomy pretty well from being an x army medic plus I have a degree in sports science though I'm no scientist like our friend 'Hating Hats'.

I Remember Chris Manc saying something about sore lumps behind the ears after his treatment so I messaged him and he got back to me within 5 min. Chris had exactly the same  symptoms I had and went to Medical Centre to get seen by a Doctor. 

Anyways, as far as Chris's Dr was concerned I was on the right track with the facial nerves running through the mastoid bone. Long story short I'm not going to die yet and the golf ball sized lumps behind my ears have settled right down. 

I want to say a big thanks to Chris Manc for getting back to me so fast and explaining the situation so well. I was in a lot of pain and stressing out and he really did save the day. 

Just goes to show the forum is a great place for support before, during and after your treatment.

Have you had your second treatment yet ?
If so how are you going ?
Did you try a painkiller and did it help ?

Haven't had my 2nd treatment yet, I'm booked in for tomorrow at 3pm.Im one of those unfortunate clients that hurt like hell during the treatment so I'm trying a whole range of things for tomorrow. I'll let you all know how it pans out for me.I'm finally adding some pics, I'm pretty happy with the progress thus far, looks pretty good to me for only one session.

Pics are 7 days out from session number 1. Notice the small lump behind my right ear, it was the size of a golf ball the day after the treatment.

I agree, I would hate for people to notice my new hairline and tell me I'm receding. Going for at least a half an inch lower. Glad you agree Remington.

Hey Oster, 2nd treatment went really well thanks. 


I decided after extensive research that I would use a numbing cream. 
It took the pain from an 8 to a 1 or 2. Only thing is it only lasts about 90min so for the last 30min it was super painful again. 

I applied the anesthetic cream 2 hours before the treatment and let it sit on the skin under wraps until just before the treatment started. 

3rd session is tomorrow.

Hi, so will ibuprofen taken before the procedure work to ease the pain?
