Not around often these days- I've found it's better for my health if I remain only a rare visitor :P
Just a heads up for those interested. Had scan yesterday, am getting organised today, flying back tomorrow and having another craniotomy Thursday (Oz time). Feeling very happy and relaxed about it all. Looks like it will be a re-excision of a previous right frontal tumour, so hopefully same bone flap will be used and I can keep my separate sites limited to 6 (ROFL!)
Biggest concern is that they don't make my eyebrows uneven. They fixed them last time, so let's cross fingers that they keep them where they are :)
Yes, that will make 7 separate surgeries for craniotomy, and a total of 9 times opened up. The timing is fantastic, as I will be well healed and free(ish) of headaches for Georgia's first dance concert and school presentation concert in a few weeks.
They are concerned that they are finding it difficult to find stable areas to screw in the frame (it's the soccer ball effect of my head). I've suggested that I am doing them a favour by keeping them on their toes and helping them develop their problem-solving skills. I think that's important in the medical profession, don't you? That will leave me with 4? in there, but they aren't causing symptoms so I'm not bothered. We're pretty limited to one at a time thanks to my unstable skull, so it's all about prioritising.
Meanwhile, getting my things together and logistics organised... and feeling rather smug that I'm still ahead of JAG in the craniotomy stakes :P
See you on the flip side!
