-As of September 1st, 2011, i have disabled comments due to the horrific nature of some of them. I do not deserve to be left a comment saying you wish I would have died, or how ugly i am... when all i am trying to do is give advice and help people. If you have a legitimate question or concern, please private message me and I will be glad to help anyone in need...........
the notes at the end of the video explain a lot of things, take a look! (3:20 mark)
The doctors clearly stated that the PIERCER injected the bacteria. There was nothing I could have done to prevent it or clean it. It would have spread to my brain and killed me (a very potent strand of bacteria) whether I had left the bar in or taken it out. LUCKILY i took the bar out (thus the huge bubble formed), otherwise I wouldn't have even gone to the hospital, thinking it was just "normal piercing swelling and pain"... then it would have spread to my brain "silently" and killed me with NO warning sign.
you shouldnt ever take jewelry out of a healing piercing, but in my case, I was very lucky i did, otherwise i would be dead right now.
-yes, i cleaned it, twice a day with hot water sea salt soaks (about 10 minutes each) and once in the shower with an antimicrobial soap purchased from the piercer (brand: Satin)
-i never used alcohol or any other harsh chemical type to clean it with- thats a no no
- quote from the doctors and plastic surgeons from the hospital: "the piercer subjected the cartilage of the ear with a type of bacteria found in nursing homes and/or bed ridden people"... this couldn't have been prevented no matter what I did or how often I cleaned it, whether I kept it in or took it out...
-i called the piercer after day 3 of intense pain and swelling and he said it was all normal swelling and to just let it be....
It is actually a GOOD thing i took the jewelry out even though you're not supposed to, the bacteria would have spread no matter what. The giant bubble that formed was just a physical warning sign that i needed to get to the doctor.
-this was over two years ago but i'm still happy to try to tell you step by step what happened, although it went by extremely fast and traumatic, so it's hard to remember details....
-the point of this video is to help you weigh your options! if you want it, get it, but just be aware this CAN happen (to any piercing), i'm not saying it will.
- to everyone else who sympathizes with me and wishes me well, thank you! i love all your support and positive comments :)) ***This is my story of when I got my industrial... there are some very graphic pictures so watch your stomachs! If you have any questions just leave a comment and ask :)
Stay Kinki ;)
