Well friends, I have to say, I am a smart one indeed. we were running laps before marching band about a month ago. the cheerleaders were on the field practing, and of course I got distracted and ran into a big metal post off the side of our track. well, I smashed the right side of my face into my teeth and literally cut it to shreds. I spat an unbelievable amount of blood and went home. I didn't need stitches and it has sense 'healed' enough for me to play. Here's where the fun starts. I now have a "dead spot", which is what I call the bean-sized spot of firm, unmoving, painful flesh that exists on my face. I can no longer play above the G in the staff, and the G is extremely sharp. I was wondering if anyone had a similar bit of disgusting paralyzed flesh in their faces and what I could do to get this abomination to leave forever.
