I had my clipping on an unruptured Annie 3 weeks ago and have noticed a bit of dried blood in my ear (same side of clipping) - is this normal? Also still have a bit a swelling in front of temple on face!!! Don’t have a check up with consultant for another 3-6 weeks.
I was coiled, not clipped...however, I think you should call your Doctors office and ask this question...better to be safe then sorry....keep us posted...Gotcha in my Thoughts...Colleen
I agree with Colleen, please call your doctor and ask him or her this question and keep us posted.
Is the dried blood maybe from the surgery? I know that 3 weeks after my clipping surgery that I still couldn't wash my hair on my own & I'm sure there were bits of dried blood in odd places. (I went to my hairdresser a week and a half after surgery & she washed my waist length hair for me.)
I think I may have still had some facial swelling, too, at 3 weeks.. Also, I think the structure of my face on the side of the surgery is slightly different, so it looks like a have just a bit of swelling, even though I don't. (My surgery was in July.)
My followup was 2 weeks post-surgery to have my stitches and one staple removed.
I really would check with your Dr however I was finding blood in my ears I had two ops one on each side in my eyebrows behind ears for a few weeks after cause I wasn’t allowed to get it wet at all the scab so tossing and turning in the night it got everywhere. Jess.xxx
Ps hope you speak to a Dr soon
