post op discomfort

My name is Christine and I live in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I was implanted on June 18.  the first week was a bit difficult because I'm not big on pain meds.  However, I feel good now.  Wondered whether the discomfort around the ear and implant is normal after 11 days.  Don't know if I should be calling my doctor.  The pain is not bad but fairly constant.

Hi Christine! I am just a little over two weeks post-op, and still have some tenderness and numbness around my ear. I saw my doctor this past Friday,and he was not concerned about this,and said this is normal. Unless the pain is truly unbearable I would not be concerned. As with any surgical procedure there will be good days and bad days. I hope this helps with your concern. And welcome to hearpeers!

Thanks Kevin!  I should have "joined" this group before surgery and maybe there would not have been so many surprises and I would have known what to ask.
