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.
