So had a right disection on Wed and just got home from hospital today. I have a scar from the right back of my head at the hair line to the left side of the front of my neck. it's closed with staples, about 30 staples.
Needless to say I look horrible. I've never been really vain, but I always got a second look from people for being on the pretty side...now they just stared at me on the way home.
So the biggest complaint I have is the numbness. my right side of my face, right ear, my neck and front of chest and shoulder are all numb. Can anyone shed some light about the feeling coming back or not?? my ear keeps itching like crazy....
I just finished breast cancer treatment and thought that was bad...the two surgeries I had were nothing compared to this one. this was definately worse than the thyroidectomy too.
So, I'm off to bed...hopefully I can sleep tonight cause I didn't get any sleep the last 2 nights in the hospital.
Take care all.
