Pol surgery?
« on: May 23, 2008, 03:53:32 pm »
The calendar lists this for today:
"Pol surgery at Beaumont Hospital Drs. Bojrab & Pieper"

I don't know who Pol is (if it's a person) or what it is (if it's a procedure).  Any thoughts?

7 mm AN left side
translab 6-12-08
postop issues including CSF leak, eye issues, and facial palsy.  All issues resolved at 9 mos. except slight facial palsy & weakness.  Continuing to improve...

Pol is a member, albeit a quiet one (3 posts). There is one topic started by Pol:

I'm hoping the surgery went well today.

8 mm left AN June 2007,  CK at Stanford Sept 2007.
Hearing lasted a while, but left side is deaf now.
Right side is weak too. Life is quiet.

I knew that Pol's surgery was coming soon, but I didn't realize it was yesterday!

I guess I'll have to start checking the AN Calendar more frequently.

You are in my thoughts and prayers, Pol.  I'm hoping everything worked out wonderfully for you.

Be seeing you as a "postie" very soon  :)
