I am a flight attendant and had a craniotomy to remove an epidural hematoma. How long before i can fly again? How will pressurization affect my head?
Usually a month: Though there is no absolute correct answer, but generally a month should be safe in many situations. Your neurosurgeon is the only one who can tell you the best answer for your particular situation. Note that if there neurological problems from having the epidural bleed, the length of time out of work could be longer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Variable: It is dependent on the condition one is in at the time of surgery, the age of pt (or to be more exact the physiological age--some 70 yo are more like 50 yo physiologically), and other medical problems the pt may have. The surgeon should be able to give you a ballpark figure. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I had a craniotomy for a subdural hematoma 18 mos ago and my skull has depressions and "lump" along the suture lines. Is that normal?
Yes: That is common and not a medical concern as long as the scalp incision is completely healed. I have seen a case where a patient with a very thin scalp eventually had the scalp open up over one of the small plates used to secure the bone flap. This is rare, but would require surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had at least one CT scan (possibly 2...Would they have done one after my craniotomy from a hematoma?). Am i at a higher risk of brain cancer?
Doubt it: There's some studies suggesting that children who have a bunch of of ct scans over long illnesses are at some extra risk for leukemia and perhaps brain tumors; this makes sense biologically but the risk isn't huge. I wouldn't waste energy worrying about just one or two; i'd be glad instead that the hemotoma's out and i hope you'll do well from this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I had a 3cm adeno in left frontal lobe=craniotomy 1mo ago. No other disease known. I sleep a lot. How long is recovery? 69 and otherwise healthy.
Depends on resection: It sounds like you had the resection of a 3cm adeno (carcinoma). If this is the case, the extent of resection, the degree of surrounding edema (swelling) will play a role in recovery. Sleeping a lot is not uncommon and can be related to medications as well as the post-operative changes in the brain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What happens if I collect social security disability because I had a craniotomy and seizures but I have not had a seizure?
No endotracheal tube: The key to the awake craniotomy is that there is no endotracheal administered anesthesia. The anesthesiologist performs scalp blocks to numb the scalp and gives some IV medications (ie. Presedex or propofol). The patient is able to respond to questions/follow commands/move. This is extremely valuable for the neurosurgeon trying to operate in eloquent areas of the brain and preserve function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
