  • The doc said he's having a possible stroke, injected his face with something and didn't put him in the hospital? Call the doc up and say "what the ***l?". But it really sounds like it might be Bell's palsy. www.bellspalsy

  • I would be sooo mad at that doctor. Any distortions to the face can be extremely dangerous and signify stroke or another serious condition. I cannot believe he just gave your father a shot and sent him on his way. I would consider a lawyer for medical malpractice. By the doctor's non-action he could have put your father's life in danger.BobbiIowa
