Torontoman - Introduction thread
« on: January 17, 2019, 09:45:07 am »
I have the exact same problem as you in my cheeks. The migrating bio alcamid I was injected with as part of a that test here in Toronto thru Maple Leaf Medical. It is swelling now even though I am on Keflex for times a day and 500 mg. and it migrates from cheek to cheek. Its a nitemare! How are you doing now? I have a feeling I am about to undergo what you have done. What would you suggest is my first plan of action? CT Scan? Ultrasound?
Itís been a nightmare over the past year for me and I feel like I should get it taken care of.
I would be interested to know how youíre doing after all of this.
Please get back to me

Hiya torontoman

I split your post into its own thread, for one the thread posted in is a zombie thread and this way you also can introduce yourself to the forum.  Its customary for new members to have their own threads and to introduce themselves to the other forum members, let us know how your getting on with HIV treatment, what your labs are like etc etc
