BAHA Surgery Update

20170518_152736.jpeg

The bandage is off my head now and the incision is healing nicely.

The BAHA surgery involves drilling into the skull, so it sounds like it would be extremely painful.  However, the pain is fairly minimal.

My biggest struggles right now are getting very dizzy whenever I first stand up and everything taste bad.  Temporally losing taste is not uncommon whenever surgery is done on your ears, because there are a lot of nerves that run through that area and into the sinus cavity.

This isn’t the first time I have had some nerve damage after an ear surgery and I have never had any long lasting complications.  Therefore, I am not worried about losing my ability taste food at the moment.

Overall, things are going well.  I am mostly resting and watching an enormous amount of documentaries.

  1. Similar with open heart surgery for 4 – 8 weeks for most. I could not figure out how to balance my check book and could not put together something that had more than a dozen or so pieces. I suppose that is a lesson if Alzheimer ever sets in – early stages. Best wishes speedy recovery.
