Would appreciate any guidance on this one because no ENT I've consulted has been much help. About two years ago I had a cosmetic filler called Sculptra injected into my face. I had done this before with no adverse reactions. This time however, the stupid PA ( and I've since learned this should ONLY be administered by a physician) injected directly under my left ear lobe ( for God knows what reason) as well as the usual sites in the face. Since that day I have experienced extreme fullness in the left ear area, bad tinnitus and a hearing loss in the low frequencies. It's driving me nuts not knowing what in the **** happened. I've had a brain MRI ( found nothing) and various ENTs guessing that it's cochlear hydrops. From the trauma, not from the trauma, no one wanted to commit to any opinion because of a possible lawsuit. For the same reason, no one really took the time do any research regarding this filler and what it could possibly be doing to cause my symptoms.. An audiologist I saw last week seems to think the fullness is not cochlear hydrops but the brain creating a sensation of fullness trying to compensate for the hearing loss. I keep thinking it is none of these things and the stupid PA damaged a nerve when she injected below the ear lobe. The Scuptra needle is about an inch and a half long. I know this is dilemma is unusual given the circumstances, but I would appreciate any insight any of you out there might have on this. Forget a lawsuit, I'd just like my hearing back.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
