My wife met with the nerosergeon last Friday. She's not getting a stent put in. In the back of her head there's an area that's draining fluid. No stent but there doing it differently. Its hard for me to explain it. But she will be getting like an 8 inch cut down her head and neck. Surgeon told her I. Going to give it to you straight. When you wake up you will be really sick. Your going to feel the worst pain you ever felt. And you will be vomiting alot. You will be in the icu at first. She's scheduled for surgery on October 12.

Re: Update on upcoming surgery.

I am hoping all goes well for your wife. Many years ago I had a very extensive and tricky surgery. The surgeon was very honest and told me I would wake up and vomiting and in a lot of pain. That is exactly what happened. I appreciated his honesty, I was prepared but of course, recovery was hard. What helped me was that my husband never left my side, he had a sleeper chair in my hospital room. That made a world of difference to me. I would wake up in intense pain and and confusion and I'd see him, He was my comfort. The days and nights of my hospital stay are a blur but my husbands support is a precious memory. I hope you can do the same for your wife and that she recovers quickly!
