What is recovery after craniotomy like?
A loved one is having craniotomy at Mayo Minnesota on June 9th. I have anxiety disorder, also cerebral palsy, and am terrified about what recovery is like – we live in Michigan.. As long as there are no complications, how long does it take for patients to be allowed to drive again? We have a Disney cruise planned for December- is that realistic ?
Any other experiences with what to expect with recovery would be welcome- I have 0 experiences, and am terrified of the whole recovery process- what to expect- how long it takes etc.
It’s interesting- the tumor is believed to be benign- and the chemo and radiation after will take care of it, but the actual surgery terrifies me.
