Serious scalp itching after forehead lift 2 months ago, when will it end?

Incision made at hairline across my forehead, and 3 " on each side of my head.  Top on my head (while numb) itches incessantly but I can't relieve it. Now it is in my cheeks and ear.  Any comments?  I was told this incision has not been done in years, the Dr. said since my hair is thin he decided to take this approach.

I have to wear a wig all the time, and the lace front ones just barely cover the scar.

How are you doing? Are you still itching?

It has diminished, but never goes away, My hair is 1/4" long on the top so I can apply medications to the scalp. I was given a couple of medications to take orally, but now my taste is off, and I had a mouth full of canker sores. I have stopped the oral meds, but now can't really taste anything. I hope this side effect goes away! And to think I signed a release from any liability just to have him refund 3/4 of my money. This possibly could last for the rest of my life. OMG

I have called several attorneys, but they said since I signed a release it could cost up to $25,000 to fight it in court and break the release, then I could file a suit. I don't have that kind of money, and they want a large retainer just to start.

Yes. All the time. Medications have given me sores in my mouth and my taste buds are gone. Temporarily, I hope. Does anyone know of an attorney that can assist me in getting out of the agreement I signed while on heavy narcotic pain meds, and not being informed that this could happen let alone continue for possibly the remainder of my life?

I wish I could help you. I know of no attorney. I don't even know where you would start. I hope the itching stops for you - it certainly can't go on the remainder of your life. What does your surgeon say about the itching?

I was researching browlifts and came across a comment you made. How are you doing, better I hope. :)

A bit. Please read the other comments I just left.

I'm so, so sorry. I hope your taste buds come back and the itchiness dissipates. My thoughts are with you.

Thank you. I am desperately trying to find an attorney to help me. I have gone to a Neurologist, an ENT, and dermatologist. All said it is nerve damage from this surgery

I am so tired, and 4 attorneys have turned me down. They say it's too difficult to break the signature and there is no guarantee I could win anyway.
