Post Op Medical Update

Featured Friday, 24 April 2015 12:52

The operation went well it seems.

It took about 4 hours, they knocked me out then put me face down onto a special bed for the op. My head was in a brace with 5 clamp points - I still have big lumps around the head from them!

Full details and deals at: http://mattgranger.com/mhaffmbtp

For details on exactly what they did - see link at top.

I was in intensive care unit overnight then transferred up to the regular ward for another 5 days.

I'd be lying to say I am pain free, but is not as bad as I had expected. Fingers crossed once the stapes are removed, the incision site will be less tender, and easier to sleep on. Currently it varies from a dull ache to a sharp press headache - but if I bump it, then pain surges in.

Thanks again for all of your support!

    We had a cat "newie" who had an operation on the outer layer surrounding the brain. His scalp was stapled up for a week or so. As soon as the staples were removed we let him out in the front garden for his afternoon romp and no sooner out the door, he climbed a tree! He went on to live many happy years.
    Just to let you now. though, when the staples are removed, avoid trees for awhile.

We've all heard (& probably said) "The best camera is the one you have with you..." But is it accurate? Is it helpful? Or is it an over simplification that is actually not true at all??
