CRANIOTOMY

What it is ac­cord­ing to Wiki

“A craniotomy is a sur­gi­cal op­er­a­tion in which a bone flap is tem­po­rar­ily re­moved from the skull to ac­cess the brain.”

Why you Would need one

You have tu­mors or le­sions (any ab­nor­mal tis­sue dam­age) from dis­eases, trau­matic brain in­jury such as hematomas (think gi­ant blood clots) since you thought hel­mets and seat­belts weren’t nec­es­sary, for ex­am­ple.

What it’s re­ally like

“Hindi ko makakalimu­tan yung nag­tang­gal kami ng tu­mor sa ulo… mem­o­rable siya kasi ang ta­gal niya– buong eight hours shift nakatayo kami pero di pa rin siya tapos. Bukod dun, tala­gang nakita namin yung brain, tapos ha­bang in­o­opera papunta dun sa tu­mor (nasa gitna kasi ng brain yun) so­brang baho ng op­er­at­ing room. Amoy sunog na laman.” Al, BS Nurs­ing
