Renachelw Posted May 11, 2018 Report Share Posted May 11, 2018 Hi everyone, thanks for your constant support these past few months I am so glad to have virtually met you all on this website, even though I eventually did not choose Medel. (The hospital doesn't allow me to change brands now that I already ordered it ) I am still so scared because honestly idk if I am thinking too much, but I have always been feeling tired/ weaker than others. So I'm hoping that I don't have any undiscovered health issues that might make me reject the implant/ allergic to the GA and such...I really hope I wake up. I also have no idea why the hospital did not check if I'm allergic to the GA? Is this normal procedures? I don't have any other known allergies to medicines or food. Anyway, my parents and basically everyone around me still haven't come to terms with me getting an implant, they want me to wait longer in hopes of a miracle. (If a miracle happens, I rly hope it will happen before the surgery because I really need to hear again for school and work, and cannot delay surgery anymore.) I am just wondering, if let's say eventually (knock on wood) I find the implant of no use, and remove it, will the structural integrity of my skull be affected? Will I be able to do contact sports/ get hit in the head to the same limits as non-implanted ppl? Finally, how did you guys manage with the pain after surgery? Idk if I can manage because I actually once fainted from a sprained ankle haha. Will I be able to return to work immediately? I'm also worried about other things like sneezing because I have sensitive nose and can sneeze more than 5x and consecutively in a day.. and also running/swimming.. how long do I have to wait to resume such activities? Thank you everyone Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
