My brother has a habit of moving his lower jaw unconsciously(right-left side wise) when he is thinking about something or when he is watching something on television. We are see this behavior from past 1 week or so. His work requires him to make and pickup calls on mobile very often. Not sure if this is any reason of concern.
Doctor:How can I help you today?
User:hi my sister had CSF leak repair through endoscopy
User:she had a leak in right nostril post surgery her left eye had a swollen eye
User:it was a like a jelly on her left eye beside the ratina of eye
User:she has taken some drops post which the swelling came down but i feel her eye ha become crossed
User:is that possible?
Doctor:It can be possible for some anatomical cause
Doctor:For example if there is some swelling on one side of the eye, it may look crossed
Doctor:Thus uneven surface behind retina may be responsible
Doctor:Are you there?
User:the leak was in right side through right nostril.but her left eye was swollen
User:and precisely the left half of left eye beside the retina had the jelly like swelling
Doctor:For the swollen left eye you need to consult an ophthalmologist and get some tests done
Doctor:We need to find a cause of the swelling behind the eye
User:and right now the swelling or bulge is gone but eye is still red and i feel its crossed
Doctor:It may be because of surgical procedure
User:she has no problem with vision
Doctor:I think it may just be temporary andmay resolve overnight
Doctor:If it does not then can visit an eye doctor tomorrow
Doctor:What were the eye drops that she took?
User:but have you heard of any side effect like this happenning post surgery for endoscopic csf leak repair
Doctor:Actually it is an uncommon surgery
Doctor:and such cases are usually not reported
Doctor:I tried to look in medical journals for reports of such cases
Doctor:but there is none
Doctor:From the history that you are providing
Doctor:It seems more like an anatomical reason that may have happened as a complcation of the surgical procedure
Doctor:It is a possibility
Doctor:There are two cases in which csf leak happened when surgery was done for squint
Doctor:So it is definitely related
Doctor:Do you have any question here?
Doctor:Are you there?
Doctor:Mostly the diagnosis is needed as to why the swelling happened
User:ok so you are saying its possible for eye to become crossed after csf repair
Doctor:But we need to take care of it
Doctor:By getting some tests done under supervision of ophthalmologist
User:ok thankyo
Doctor:Thanks for consulting
Doctor:Take care
