I’ve been in the hospital way too long for my own liking. Due to a condition I’ve had since birth I’ve become susceptible to headaches at best and migraines at worst if I perform any kind of strenuous activities. I remember one of my university classes almost being the death of me. We had to create an educational video clip for the university to use which involved different types of microphones. I decided to be the actor and subject myself to current and future humiliation, while also subjecting my team mates and viewers to my terrible stop-and-start acting. Unfortunately, during the shooting we realised I had to ditch the glasses because they messed with the camera. I used to handle being without my glasses pretty well as a child. In fact, I had to be forced to wear them. As an adult, I don’t dare take them off if I can help it. The migraines almost killed me and we had to have four sessions totalling around twelve hours. If I didn’t have to take the train back home I would’ve collapsed in the studio and slept it off there. That’s how nauseating and dangerous my condition has become for me.

In fact, every half a decade or so my condition worsens to the point that I need to have surgery. Every single time the occasion comes up the process is slow, awkward and painful. Lying in bed, usually on my side because my head pounds too much to lie on my back. Having to lie on my back for x-rays while I’m trying to render myself unconscious through sheer will power. The medical equipment hovering over me usually doesn’t help. I’m not claustrophobic or afraid of the dark. I just wonder if someone’s going to come back for me.

When it comes to the doctors finally performing the neurosurgery, I try not to think about the medical equipment being used. Obviously the first thing I’m subjected to is the anaesthetic mask although I try to fight the effects every time. Well, that depends on my willpower and my patience in regards to my condition. I can imagine what they use to get into my head and fiddle with the tubes, though.
The pituitary curette is a strange device with a name suitable for the family of medical equipment. Its use is in the name – it’s designed to work on the pituitary region of the brain. If there needs to be squishy matter scooped out and collected then this is the tool to do it.
The distraction screw sounds scary and a little intrusive. Apparently it’s used to affix and realign bone during surgical reconstruction. If that’s the case, I wonder why it would be used as medical equipmenton a skull. Maybe it’s best not to think about it.
I’m better off taking the anaesthetic and sleeping through the operation, I think.
