What treatment has had for this new mass?When did the eyelid droop appear?Is it a complete droop where the eye is not visible unless the eyelid if physically lifted?Is that eye able to move left/right/up/down?How long has he been in remission?
Are you still there?
He is a patient at Georgetown Medical and was a former chem. student and close friend when he was in high school. He had treatment for the septic infection, but to my knowldge , has had no treatment for the suspected mass/abscess? An eye surgeon is scheduled to do a biopsy on Thursday. HIS VISION IS NOT IMPAIRED BUT THE MUSCLE CONTROLLING THE EYELID IS THE PROBLEM. I JUST FOUND OUT THAT HIS INFECTION WAS A STREP. WHICH QUICKLY, BECAUSE OF HIS POOR BODY DEFENSES CAUSED A HIGH FEVER AND VERY LOW BLOOD PRESSURE.
YES- I JUST REPLIED.
