They are drilling holes in your scalp, pulling your muscles up, and
inserting pins (endotines) in your skull to keep them yanked up. I woke up from anesthesia in
pain and it NEVER STOPPED for 3 1/2 days. It is most painful - not discomfort - AGONY - white hot searing unrelenting pain. I had the MOST
EXCRUTIATING HEADACHE and only 2 puny little percocets, which did
NOTHING. I sobbed for hours and then just cried to try not to ruin all
the plastic surgery I just had. Surgeon refused to do anything for pain other than percocets. I told him I didn't want anymore percocets because they do nothing. I begged for a short or something that would knock the pain down - I should have gone to the emergency room for treatment. I do not have any idea why these doctors are saying it is not a painful procedure. Hint Hint - When a patient refuses more Percocets, they are not a junkie - they are in AGONY. Treat their pain or refer them to a pain specialist who will see them on an emergency basis or send them to the ER.
