So happy for you, guys!!!!
3 hours after!!!
We are going to do a surgery in the end of March.
Please, share your experience - what should we know before?
Our doctors say they put a drain for an excessive liquid.
Did you experienced that??
They did not have to put a drain in. There's about 2 1/2 inches of clear stitches that will dissolve in about a month. They did find a blood vessel running up his neck behind his ear that was feeding the Hemangioma which is why it bled so much every time he pulled the scab off. They sealed that vessel off.
Surgery was general anesthesia and took about 1.5 hours.
Last night, he actually slept through the night for the first time in weeks as he wasn't in constant pain anymore. We are thrilled!!
