    Any of you guys starting to develop or have it? I don't, but a lot of people where I train do.

    I think I am one of the non-chauli disposed people. I have had my ears smashed so many times and not a touch of swelling.

    I know a few people that have it drained and it comes back a few weeks later after rolling. Sucks for them.

    imo the surgery hurts more than the actual cauli, but i also didnt have a really bad case either, mine was pretty minor,

    holy freakin crap. 1 spot in the middle of my right ear, and 1 spot on the very top of my left ear are swollen just a bit and look a bit deformed. Both spots are pretty sensitive to pressure when I press my finger to them.

    I've been training 4 times a week for around 3 hours each class for a little over 2 years now, is it even possible that cauli could form this early?

    just if your wondering... for those of you who have it tell me if this is how it started out? Or did it just swell up hugely at once.

    I spent the majority of my last roll with my head pinned between the ankles of a dude who outweighed me by at least 50 lbs if not more than that. ears hurt like a fuck after that but still no cauli! :x:

    it can start out like that, and if u keep training the bubble will get bigger

    it can also swell up all at once

    ok, I think I am going to start using headgear. Do you have it on both ears?

    yes i have it on both ears.

    just use headgear once it starts hurting, if its a small bubble it goes away and it doesnt leave anything

    uh how long does it take to go away? Its been like a week maybe since it appeared they are still on both ears. They are pretty small, but now I am worried. Is it too late to get it drained?

    just chill out, theyll go away. anyway.. if you have a tiny bubble, it doesnt even leave any kind of noticable deformity. you have to get your ear to swell way up for it to leave anything noticeable
