hello everybody
my name is pascaline , im 21 years old ,studying law by distance learning with uk and i live in mauritius.two weeks ago a sunday i woke up with a great pain on the bone behind my right ear, the pain was persistent i wait until the next morning and went to the hospital,the doctor there told me to have a x ray and an haziness of mastoid cells were detected.I then was hospitalised and was given antibiotics by intra vein , the next day i was out and given antibiotics for 7 days. today the pain has stopped but i have some glands which appear and the bone behind my ear is still a little big. the doctors here told me to wait until next monday to have a xray and there i will know if i need a surgery to drain the infection. im very afraid as when searching through internet , i read that i can have a face paralysis and other serous symptoms. please help me , is the diagnosis good? i live in a not so well developped country and if it is needed i can leave to have a surgery in another country. please help me , i want to live normally like others around me , my mental fitness is going worse through days, i dont know where im going and not having the control of my body make me very ill. could anyone help me? if u had already experienced mastoiditis could u help me ?:confused:

thank-you all for helping me

  • hi Pascaline, I had a serious case of mastoiditis that required a month of antibiotics intravenously and four more months orally. I got CT scans of the infected bone about once every three weeks during this time. If I ever got such an infection again, I would insist on getting CT scans until they showed that the mastoid bone cells were clear.Bruce
