Have bells palsy after surgery. 2 months out and face healed well. Now my face is tingling, numb, and ear pressures up when making movement. Healing?
Which surgery?: After parotidectomy, the facial nerve (motor nerve) may be temporarily damaged resulting in facial weakness. Unless the nerve was severed this usually resolves in weeks or months.
