Seizures And Hearing Loss After Craniotomy Surgery?
Good evening ,, I want to ask ,, I was 5 months ago after surgery for the head of the left shell to remove my shell, what I want to ask is why I still have seizures and my eyes are uncomfortable to see my ears are buzzing to the left and thinking I’m not stable yet, how long will it take to recover and be stable ?? Thank you
Hi Dandi .. Thank you for the question given.
The surgical removal of the skull that you mean in medical language is called a craniotomy. A craniotomy is a brain surgery process by opening the skull bones. This operation is a major operation and is performed by a neurosurgeon. This procedure is performed on patients with: severe head injury, cerebral hemorrhage, stroke with bleeding within the brain. aneurysm, brain tumor, brain abscess. During the operation, each layer of the scalp is cut into the skull, then the skull is opened with a special tool, then the brain is treated according to your case, then the skull bone is put back in place and glued together with stitches.
This operation has several risks such as: infection, bleeding or blood clots, unstable blood pressure, swollen brain, seizures, muscle weakness, and decreased consciousness. After surgery you still have to carry out routine controls on the doctor until the doctor states you have completely recovered. Recovery time for each patient varies according to the patient's disease state before surgery, patient adherence to routine controls, lifestyle after surgery. In addition, the doctor can advise avoiding lifting weights that are too heavy or driving to avoid strain on the stitch marks.
If you are still experiencing seizures, hearing problems, and muscle weakness, then you should go back to the surgeon in charge of you for a consultation. So that the doctor can carry out an examination directly and can be advised again such as an EEG, CT scan, or MRI.
