The wife took a picture after removing the wrapping so I could see it.

Heal Well, there's plenty o folks wearing more metal than that on and around ears nose face, etc., for no apparent reason so you'll blend in fine. Feel better :thumbs: and get your rest.

Man, that looks like it HAS to hurt.  Not so much just because of the staples, but because it shows how invasive the surgery was.  Hope it stops hurting ASAP!

That was the big thing when George had similar surgery on his right ear when he was 10 years old. Just knowing they are cutting into the head that much to reach the ear canal is a little nerve racking. The surgery back then restored a lot of hearing in his right ear so even though the doctor said he wasn't able to do as much as he planned this time, hopefully the final outcome will produce equally good results.

Kinda stinks the scar will be nearly hidden. Mine goes from the front edge of my left ear curving up and back nearly to the crown. Better luck next time!

Nice to have staples, though. Those don't hurt coming out. Stitches, with that tugging sensation, drive me nuts.

Dang, I feel for you. Sure hope you can get your hearing back, don't know how I would be able to handle that. A friend of mine here was born deaf and somehow they installed an inplant that come out the side of his head. He can hear better now than most normal people.  Last summer I made some rope with a little guy that had gone though the same thing. His dad says he does real good with. Amazing what science can do now days.

My son's wife's Dad is having that same "cochlear implant" done to save his only working ear.  They already implanted the base in his head, but it didn't take the first time & simply fell out one day.  He went in this past Tuesday to get a new implant.

I sure hope you got your sucker after going through that procedure.  You deserved it! :smilewink:   All in all it doesn't look bad so hopefully you will recover quickly and a some point you will have super hearing.  Maybe like sonar in the movie "Down Periscope" .
