December 30, 2013 After 16 Years of Misery Lymph Swelling Goes Down (Temporarily)

On December 17, 2013 Sandy had a large polyp, which was shaped like a peanut shell, removed from her sinuses. The doctor said it was in the far back area of her sinuses and it was completely blocking the right side and partially blocking the left side, which, according to the doctor, was blocking her lymph and was the cause of her breasts being swollen. Since then, the swelling in her breasts has decreased so much she says she’s amazed at how much better her whole body feels (the feeling she had before was like she had an inflated inner-tube wrapped around her chest).

Sandy has been telling me about this feeling since she had a hysterectomy in November 1997 (16 years ago).

Dr. Clark explained to Sandy in 2001 that having a hysterectomy was the cause of the swelling of her breasts because before her hysterectomy a pathway had been established to send the toxins from the hidden infection in her jawbone (see next paragraph) to her ovaries (which was causing the endometriosis, which was the reason for the hysterectomy) and, when her ovaries were removed, the pathway changed and went to her breasts. Dr. Clark also explained that since the pathway to her breasts was now established any other toxins released from an infection in her body would follow the same pathway.

Sandy’s problem began with a hidden infection called osteomyelitis (infected bone) in her jawbone which was caused by taking tetracycline at age two, which discolored and weakened her permanent teeth that were in the process of developing in her jawbone, and, being hit under her jaw in a swimming pool accident at age nine, which caused fractures from the crown to the tips of the roots of several of her molars.

Unbeknown to Sandy an infection from the fractures of the roots gradually caused both osteomyelitis and osteonecrosis (dead bone) in her jawbone, which caused toxins to drain into her body. (Note: Sandy had several endometriosis operations between the ages of 18 and 30 before she had her hysterectomy in 1997 at the age of 36. In the screening of a video of one of those operations we saw drooping strings of what looked like pearl necklaces, which the doctor called endometriosis material as he removed them with a laser.)

By January 2001, three years after her hysterectomy, Sandy was in so much pain and so swollen she thought she was dying, but her Washington state dentist, who had removed three molars after trying to save them with root canals that failed, did not realize she had osteomyelitis/osteonecrosis.

It was after she came to live with me, her mom (Bonnie) and Dale in March 2001 that she was diagnosed with osteomyelitis/osteonecrosis of the jawbone (this was in September of 2001 after seeing several doctors and dentists and having had several more teeth removed). Between September 2001 and September 2009 she had all of her teeth removed and multiple jawbone scrapping surgeries and dead bone removal surgeries (during the surgery in September 2009 the dentist said he had broken through into her sinus area as he was removing dead bone).

Now, with both the infection and the polyp gone we believe the lymph nodes in Sandy's breasts will be able to go completely back to normal. (Update: This did not happen, in December 2015 the tumor was discovered to be back and she had another operation to remove an even bigger tumor than the first one in January 2016, which was also melanoma.)
