      • That’s good to hear!

        Now tell me about the giant flap of skin that needs to be peeled off before they cut out a hole in the skull with a bone saw.

        Still zero on the “sensory neurons”?

        • Lidocaine is a wonderful substance.

          p.s. I used to be a Nurse, specializing in Neuro trauma and rehab. Yes, the flap healing is uncomfortable, more, I am told, from the itching than overt pain.
