Hello, I'm writing after my first AN surgery for some question.
I wrote on ANAUSA forum for other infos in the past, after a period of difficult choices..as common in NF2..I've taken the decision of my right AN translab removal (3,2mm right side + meningioma).
After more than one week from the surgery I'm at home but I have a lot of pains, from the neck to the head at the right side. In the night I can't stay well more than 4 hrs! I've the right ear sewn and inflated. I have no sensitivity at the right ear. Are these common problems tested by you?
In the Translab is always put a titanium plate to cover the bone opened like in my case?
Doctor says me that is normal and I have to be patient, the facial nerve is ok apart the right eye area. I can close the eye but not half-close individually, I have to pay attention to the dryness of the eye since there are no tears for now. Waiting enought it will improve, but the right side is full in tension together with the skin pulled from the points on the ear. Any of you can give useful directions like in the past?
Thank you for your help.
