BAHA surgery scheduled!
« on: July 13, 2009, 10:32:05 pm »
My translab surgery was six weeks ago, and I now have a date for my BAHA surgery: August 13! Oh, happy day!

It's very exciting. Thanks for the information you all have posted about the BAHA BP 100. Sounds way cool!!  I need to ask my surgeon if that is the best option for me.

Wow, Brenda!  That's great news!  ;D

If you PM me your mailing address, I'll send you one of Lori's and my Official BAHA Recovery Kits.

Did you put your hot date on the AN Calendar?

Retrosig 5/31/07 Drs. Battista & Kazan (Hinsdale, Illinois)
Left AN 3.0 cm (1.5 cm @ diagnosis 6 wks prior) SSD. BAHA implant 3/4/08 (Dr. Battista) Divino 6/4/08  BP100 4/2010 BAHA 5 8/2015

I don't actually "make" trouble..just kind of attract it, fine tune it, and apply it in new and exciting ways
