Day 1: (august 16th) labyrinthectomy without the cochlear implant. Ambulatory outpatient surgery. (Day 1 was written by my wife) The procedure was scheduled for noon and had to fast after midnight. I arrived at the doctor just before 11 and was taken back to gown up around 11:15. After meeting with the surgeon and anesthesiologist, I was taken back for the procedure around 12:40. Procedure lasted from 1:15 until 2:30. The doctor told my wife that everything went as planned with no issues. After about an hour I was moved from the hospital bed to a reclining chair. Receiving fluids and iv pain meds. Got up and walked with assistance down the hall and back. Felt nauseous and dizzy so the nurses had me sit back down and gave me another bag of fluids and IV anti nausea medicine. After about 45 minutes took another walk and felt okay enough to brave going home (I really just wanted to get in my own bed). Was taken out in a wheelchair and when I got home I was able to walk with assistance to my apartment. Got home and went straight to be. Woke up a few times throughout the night to go to the bathroom. Took the prescribed anti nausea and dizziness medication and over the counter pain medication. Everything was pretty bad and with vertigo. Loud tinnitus.
