Hi all, I have been on here asking questions prior to getting surgery ..

Had my surgery July 3rd yesterday . All went well . In and out 1 1/2 hours recovery 1hr about . 

Only issue I had was that pressure bandage so uncomfortable first day I have to admit. Just had nausea meds to take home and over counter pain Meds .. today took bandage off releaved the pressure just felt a little out of it still . By the afternoon felt better .. 

thanks for all your help on this forum

Glad to hear you're doing well, @Karen fudge!  Now you can just heal up and wait for activation.

Hi did anyone have throat irritation afterwards . I wasn’t intubated but not sure as they cut through the muscle if that’s causing my throat to be irritated .. also I guess I’m sore bruised up  to be expected.. thanks .

@Karen fudge

I am sorry you are sore.  I found it helpful to sleep in a recliner the first couple of nights.

Hey 

Thanks for keeping intouch. I think my problem was I had laryngitis 3 days prior to surgery . Post op it got worse . I guess cutting behind the ear and through the muscle. The side of my neck was stiff and had a post nasal drip to boot . I took off work expected to go back on Monday but just felt out of it and. It with it.

Going back tomorrow just have to take it easy . Been a week already .. 

Thanks

karen

Welcome to HearPeers.  Would you like to introduce yourself a bit?  Did you recently have CI surgery?
