Any tips? What should I do to be prepared for after a craniotomy?

Brain surgery. Craniotomy is a general word for brain surgery. Risks include stroke, weakness, paralysis, seizures, trouble with speaking or understanding, numbness or tingling, clumsiness or even death. But a skilled neurosurgeon can usually get patients through it safely, with about 90 percent chance they will be the same after surgery as before. Headache pain is easily manageable with pills, rarely shots!
