| | my stapedectomy
Had my surgery on Friday Feb 11th, 2011. After I woke up pain began to increase a little so they gave me painkiller via IV. Took vicodin around 5:00pm & 9:00pm. Just a little woozy - moved slowly. The next morning I took my last vicodin - no pain, dizziness, nausea, loss of taste or any symptoms. The only thing that is different is my face has been red for the past 2 days. The doctor had to remove and replace the 2nd bone which has a 70% success rate.
My follow-up and removal of packing will be on the 24th, I will ask when can I have another hearing test to compare to my last one. If I don't get my normal hearing back I will be happy if I can just go back to wearing my hearing aid.
