Surgery #6November 11, 2008
Yesterday we (per request of the Neurosurgeon) visited the Plastic Surgeon again. The Plastic Surgeon suggested yet another surgery (while I’m anaesthetised) to clean the wound (and close the Grand Canyon), this will be surgery #6. As there is not enough skin left on my head (due to too much tension) will he scalpate me (I couldn’t find a more accurate English verb for the Dutch verb “scalperen”). He will then rotate the piece of skin and make sure that the 4 available arteries leading to scalp (skin of the head) match. Surgery is planned for this week Friday.
