Hi. I due to have nother cranioplasty in jyst over three weeks time I think. Must admit I bit scared at prospect. Had to have previously cranioplasty removed last year in March 2016 because it broke down after being in my head for 30 years and caused a big infection. The plate was removed and then I on IV antibiotics for a few months after. I had massive subdural infection when I 15 which nearly killed me and a piece of skull ad to be removed. A year later when I was 16 I had an acrylic cranioplasty done. It was this that broke down last year.
Have to say I little be nervous as this will now be the fourth time they cutting into my head in the same area.
I heard there more risks and complications when previous incisions are cut into time after time. They ar hoping the operation will reduce the constant headaches I been having since the last surgery which removed the plate.
I now have brain injury since last year surgery which has ruined my shot term memory and my concentration is virtually non existent along with a few other issues that I never gad before I was operated on.
Does anyone know if the risks will be higher for me and will the recovery take longer? Getting worried now.....
