I had Radiesse in my upper cheek area almost 3...

I had Radiesse in my upper cheek area almost 3 months ago . Here is my story . Went in to have my slight eye bags corrected . I already had Belotero done in my tear trough area . My PS suggested Radiesse . So I trusted he choice . The needle hurt like heck !!! I did swell but had minor bruise's . About a week later I started to like I was coming down with a sinus infection . Then every week after that I started to get sharp shooting pains in my cheek area . Still having the heavy feeling in my top teeth and my nose hurt . At 5 weeks I got a little bit of redness after a workout session . I got so nervous . The funny thing is , is that the redness appeared to be where my Belotero was placed , not my Radiesse . I took a Benadrly and try to go to bed later that night . The next morning I went to see my GP . He had no clue . I called my PS . He called in a steroid and levaquin for me . Over the course of the week my pains got worse . Now they were in my ear , up near my eye , jaw line . I had 2 full weeks of this . The steroids did help I must say. But I was still in alot of pain . My face looked fine . I went to see the PS about 2 weeks after this . He checked for granulomas . He thought it was TMJ . So I went to see a TMJ doctor . Nothing !! At this point I was sure the Radiesse was the problem . Now I have a Neuro appt. in a few weeks hoping to get some help / and or answers . My pain has done down thank goodness . BUT it seems to come back more so in the evenings . Not as bad as it was , but it feels like I have heavy cheeks , still some sharp shooters and my jaw area hurts a bit . Most of the day I am pretty ok . I do sleep ok at night with the help of some xanax my GP gave me . I was so anixous over all this . If anyone can shed some light on my story that would greatly help ???? ! I am at a loss to what is going on . Like I said , I look fine , no lumps , red welts , etc . Just is all internal . I will NEVER get any filler EVER again !!!!!! I am done with this crap !!!!!!!!! Thanks for reading :)


Its been almost 8 months since my original injections with Radiesse . I still truly will never put this stuff in my face again . Pain has subsided , but not fully 100% back to my normal self . I hope in the months to come things keep getting better . I did not write my Review on Radiesse to bash the Dr. who injected me . I noticed shortly after my review on Dr LE . A bunch of positive reviews had showed up . I know Dr's care alot about there image . BUT , I simply just wanted some help from others who had similar experiences with this Product . Also to warn people about the side effects of radiesse . Good luck to everyone who has injectables done !!!! I know they are very popular and can have positive outcomes for alot of women :)
