Janine6 Posted April 8, 2013 Report Share Posted April 8, 2013 Hi everyone, Had my operation today at 2pm and am now back home sat in bed (it's 9pm here). Feeling fine but sore - like bad toothache - so am counting down the hours until my next painkillers! I didn't have the same-day switch-on in the end.... there was another lady first in the queue before me and her operation took a long time unexpectedly (5 hours - I was worried she had died!) so mine was delayed and there wasn't time to switch me on. However, in the end they also decided to wait 2 weeks for the switch-on due to the swelling, which I'm quite pleased about - I can't imagine having a magnet attached to my head at the moment, it's too sore. One thing I wanted to ask those of you who have already had the operation.... I have quite a lot of fresh blood coming out of my ear canal and wondered if you experienced the same thing? I'm a bit confused as the operation doesn't involve the middle ear, so wasn't sure why I have blood coming from it. Any ideas? Thanks for all you kind wishes.
