Woman’s Jaw Surgery: “Like Nothing We’ve Seen Before”
A woman from Columbia County had no idea that- when she sought treatment for some swelling on the side of her head- she'd soon be discussed around the country. It turns out what she had is something doctors have rarely seen before, but a medical issue doctors at Geisinger could fix. Kathleen Wells from Stillwater says for years, every few months, she'd feel a strange pain down the side of her head. She described it as "not all that severe." She also occasionally noticed she wasn't hearing very well out of one ear. But those symptoms weren't enough to get her to a doctor's office.
