I need surgery for semicircular canal dehiscence. I know it involves a craniotomy. I am terrified. How bad is the recovery? Is it worth it?

Research this ... Yourself on the internet and be prepared with your questions to discuss them with your otologist before scheduling surgery. Is your diagnosis based on symptoms alone? Was the dehiscence seen on mri? How debilitating are your symptoms? Are they getting worse? The answers to these types of questions may help you to decide whether you need surgery. Your otologist will be able to help you sort it out.
