Number of years coming for treatment: 9
Number of prior treatments: Nothing for the past 3 years
Main problem today: Emergency treatment needed. Had had surgery to correct a problem in the right inner ear which had been very traumatic. Had a very bad reaction to the anaesthetic, an infection developed, the whole right side of the face had become numb and without feeling. He could not move it, so that his face pulled to the left whenever he opened his mouth. His right eye could not close or blink, his left eye blinked constantly to try and clear the feeling in the right eye. His speech had become very difficult, as his mouth was distorted as he spoke. He was told that he appeared to have developed something like Bell’s Palsy. No further Western medical treatment proposed. Was told “it should clear with time”.
1 AE drain, a little on Heart.
2 Severe entry/exit block between SI and Bl: the pulses on SI and Ht were very hard and strong and those on Bl and Ki very weak, SI 19, Bl 1 needled.
3 Also block between Co and St: Co 20, St 1 needled.
4 Co 4, Lu 9 with 3 moxas to finish with.
At the end of treatment: Not much change noted.
Time of next treatment: 3 days later
Proposals for next treatment: Watch out for the same entry/exit blocks, Bl 38 (43) to make up for blood loss during surgery, something on CV, such as CV 14, as his spirit is understandably very low.
