Bell’s Palsy Recovery

I saw the neurologist today and he was impressed by how fast I am recovering from Bell’s Palsy.  I have regained 95% of muscle control in the last three weeks.

The doctor said I am very lucky, because a lot of people take months to achieve this level of recovery.  Also, I will not need physical therapy or facial nerve stimulation treatments.

I have an appointment in two weeks to see an ear specialist.  Since I had surgery on the mastoid bone ten years ago, I may need another surgery to clean out any leftover fluids from the infection.

I am pleased with my current rate of recovery and appreciate everyone that has prayed for me, sent positive thoughts, and helped me during this difficult time.

  1. Yahoo! I am ecstatic for you. As a stroke survivor, I’ve understood a lot of what you’ve been facing these last weeks. The devastation that could have happened [but didn’t] would have been life-changing and, oh, so depressing. Chew gum on the weak side of your mouth.

  2. Happy to hear you are having good recovery from Bells Palsy. I had this after getting shingles n my left ear in 2012. I still have some residual difficulties ie cannot fully smile and still have vision difficulties when I am tired but feel so pleased with my progress..I had acupuncture and facial massage and also had steroid treatment to help me…of course the most important thing was I had lots of friends like Darlene Foster praying for my recovery. May your recovery continue to be a good one.
