  1. You're right about recovery. My head is still pretty sore where I'm supposing the processor will set. I'm just anxious and of course want everything yesterday! ? What was it Ivana says about patience? ?I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks
  2. November 30th. I was hoping for before thanksgiving but it's too soon. I'm curious about what that will be like. Everything this time is different.
  3. Mary Beth I am much improved. I am still getting some earaches but the nurse said it is nerve pain. I also have some random balance problems but not as much as I did. Thanks. I thought I sent a post a few days ago but just realized I wrote it but it didn't get sent ?. Two week post op checkup Tuesday. Peace
  4. I got my 2nd implant on Monday. My right implant went so good, I thought why not. well this one is no picnic. I am wondering if someone can give me some guidelines? I have quite a bit of pain in my jaw, and I get headaches and brief stabs of ear ache type pain. I am also very dizzy, using a cane. I think the dizziness is causing a bit of nausea. My dressing was on very tight and the headaches are less since it came off yesterday, now it's just by my temple . Can anyone give me a point to shoot for as to when this will get better? I'm pretty sure I got spoiled by the first one. That was a pie
  5. Hi all, I'm still waiting for the rechargeable batteries. ? From what you guys are saying I think I'm going to love them and I'm ready to hear they're coming! Wishing you all a very happy new year.
  6. Hi Cara, when I called my Dr he wanted to see me to make sure everything was OK. Went Thursday and all is well. I still have pain in my jaw and he said that's what's causing it and it will go away. I see him again this Thursday. I'm not getting them as much as I was. Thanks I appreciate your input.
  7. Thanks I called waiting for the nurse to call back
  8. I asked my sister today how to do this and she said you don't. She's a retired nurse so I'll just wait until Sunday to wash it, with gritting teeth . I get sharp pains in my ear that are like a normal earache but they don't last,just hit and run. Normal healing process? I'm still swollen pretty much.
  9. Thanks I think I'm doing weĺl. Just tired and a little sore
  10. So glad I found this post. Suggestions welcome. I'm not supposed to get any water on mine for 10 days!! My daughter in law washed half of it yesterday but I don't know how I'm going to get it done til next Sunday. I may just try to do it with wash cloths. I know I will be really crazy by then. How can I get the gummy stuff from the tape out? By the way I did have a turban bandage on for 48 hrs but no packing in my ear.
