Watching Thyroid Surgery On You-Tube
August 21, 2016 9:49am CST
I have just spent the last half hour watching videos showing thyroid surgery and some videos about the recovery. It sounds crazy right? Believe it or not I feel better now that I know what to expect. I like to know before hand just what is going to happen. I know what will be involved in the surgery and it is not as scary as I thought. I also know that it will take a little time to recover. That's ok, I will relaxed, read, write, and see if I can find something on TV. Do you do this? Check to see what to expect?

We didn't really watch videos of a surgical procedure before my son's and my scoliosos and kyphoscoliosis surgeries. I think it would have been too much. We were in a program where kids who had the surgery were in phone contact with my son to discuss what to expect. And after his surgery, he did the same for other kids, which was cool and he was really good at it. My mom had a tape done of her cataract surgery, and the whole familys at there and watched it. All I had to say was YUCK. But I'm sure I'll have to have it done someday.

I never knew you could watch videos like that on YouTube, but I guess it shouldn't surprise me at all, considering you can find just about anything on YouTube! I'll have to remember that if I ever have any future surgery or medical procedures scheduled. It definitely would be nice to know what to expect in a situation like that.
