Ear surgery

Hi, I am 14, last October, i had surgery on my ear after a recurring infection on my mastoid bone in the inner ear. The surgery was originally planed to be 3 hours and ended up almost 6, they found that the infectin ate away the stirrup hearing bone and caused a hole in the eardrum. They repaired all of this and made a prosthetic bone out of cartilidge from the outer ear (no visible damage). I had to lay off of all sports and rough play for 6 months so as not to knock the fake bone out of place. My hearing has not quite returned fully but it's good enuf. Again i have to have this same surgery in November to make sure nothing came back and go through the same post-op cautions. This has been, believe it or not, a pretty good experience (except for the recovery room period!). I was wondering if anyone had this or if anyone who is going to have their first surgery needs to ask any questions to reassure themselves. Thanks
