Ive had 2 ear mastoidektomies on my left ear almost
Patient :Ive had 2 ear mastoidektomies on my left ear almost 10 years ago. Ive been back to the ENT several times since for sporadic ear pain and pressure, but due to the surgeries i have severe keloid scarring so much so that the ear is scarred shut so no one can see inside it. About a week ago i started getting a copper taste on the back left side of my tongue and it is progressively intensifying as well as immense pressure. Does this indicate that there is an infection building up and pushing against the facial nerve? Ive never had problems with the copper taste until recently.
