About four years ago I had surgery to have two tissue expanders put in my scalp to remove a keloid that I had in the back of my head. The whole thing was so painful that I just couldn't go on with the 12 weeks that they would have to be in my head. After 4 weeks, I met with the doctor and we decided to take them out and I would keep the scar but I would get injection to flaten the keloid.
The doctor told me that my scalp would go back to the orlginal size and I would get my feeling back in my scalp. I have all of the feeling on the left side of my scalp. But the right side still goes from numb to tingling to several other feeling. I can't say that it's painful but sometimes my scalp is a little sore. And my scalp becomes inflamed when I scratch my head or comb my hair alot. I take ibuprofin daily. I understand that I probally have some kind of nerve damage and I guess it takes some time for your nerves to regenerate. But what gets me a little nervous is the swelling of the scalp. Is this something that I will be living with for some time?????
