Four years ago my son (age 11) needed emergency surgery for a mastoid infection that went down his neck and into his sinuses. This was despite the fact that he was on strong antibiotics. He never seemed to recover from this infection. He had an MRI post-surgery 3 weeks. The MD said "there is nothing wrong with him". Although after I obtained his medical records, 3 years later he indeed had a sinus infection. This infection went untreated for 3 years. He also complained of a sore throat almost constantly since the surgery. He was tested for strep at least 15 times and came back negative. Finally, 3 doctors later he had his tonsils removed. There were VERY infected. This was January 06. Since then, he has complained of headaches, sore throat, fatigue, deep ear pain, hearing loss (which has been documented by an audiologist), naseau and his nose bleeds a lot. On November 10, 2006 he had another CT scan. The doctor again said that "there is no medical evidence of an infection or recurring cholesteatoma". I am at the end of my rope. I've lost 4 jobs due to recurring medical problems because this poor kid never feels well. ANY suggestions?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
