Dec 28, 2018 · Eagle Syndrome in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I had to have both sides of my neck done due to calcification of the whole styloid on both sides. I was in the hospital for 72 hours. During the surgery I had 2 ENT doctors and a cardiovascular surgeon there because it was pressing on my carotid causing stroke like symptoms. They put drains on both sides of my neck while I was in the hospital to drain the blood and fluids out from my incision sites. It was quite the ordeal really. The pain and swelling after the surgery was pretty intense. What ended up being a 2 hour surgery turned into a 5 hour surgery. The main surgeon for the surgery had stated that they had never seen a case where the whole entire styloid was calcified

Dec 24, 2018 · Eagle Syndrome in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

I've had the surgery done in March of 2017. I have no feeling in my chin/neck on both sides all the way down to the scars on my neck where they opened me up. It was a 5 hour surgery and I had 2 drains on the outside of my neck while being in the hospital for 48 hours. It was very difficult to swallow solid foods for a very long time and I still have difficulty with it at times. I often drink out of a straw because my swallowing mechanism doesn't seem to want to cooperate without that feeling in the area. About 4 months ago the pain in my left ear started coming back, at first a dull "earache", then the feeling of a match being lit deep in my ear and sometimes like someone taking a screw driver to my ear. I started experiencing the stroke like symptoms. I'm now waiting for the results of my CT to see if the part of the process that was left in is just slightly still "ticking" my carotid. This is certainly not a fun oddball disease to have to deal with and if anyone has questions about the surgey….I would be glad to help
