View Full Version : Impact on head post craniotomy

06-08-2017, 03:42 PM
Hi I am 15 years of age and am currently 12 weeks exactly from my craniotomy operation I underwent. I had a cold and developed really bad sinusitis and had a seizure. I was brought to a&e by ambulance and had an operation to drain my sinuses. Then on an mri scan it showed I had a brain abscess the size of a tennis ball. I had an operation to drain the abscess but it came back. I then underwent a craniotomy and now it feels as if I never had one (apart from the big bald strip on the side of my head). during the operation they put the bone flap of my skull back together with titanium staples and I want to know what would happen if there was an impact on my head maybe even directly where the bone flap is. For example I play soccer and if I headered a hard ball or if someone punched me really hard where the bone flap is would something happen? Would my skull cave in? Thanks in advance really appreciate it!
