Had my Baha surgery this morning...surgery at 9 am and out on the street at 11:30!
I do not know what I was so afraid of...Jan was right...piece of cake! I had twilight sedation so I was in and out of waking up and chatting (I told my surgeon I was awake for the whole thing and he told me that I was snoring. lol
I came out to my husband/recovery, smiling, with my hair down covering up my site so it looked like I didn't even have surgery. I did hear the drilling a bit but it didn't seem bad at all...much worse in the dentist's office. We went out to lunch after and then home. It is starting to ache just a bit..so far no need for any drugs...so for those of you that are nervous like I was...it is SO not brain surgery.
My surgeon also does not use a bandage/headwrap anymore. He places a plastic disc over it...I think it kinda looks like a plastic shell...it will remain there until my post op next week...he also gave my husband my Baha with instructions to hide it from me. My husband told me he will wrap it up and give it to me for xmas
that beige thing the plastic covering
