Any good surgery videos?

I’m really scared of my upcoming surgery.
I have some “medical trauma “ in my past.
I feel better if I can see the technical aspects of my condition- unfortunately, I get about 2 hours a day of eyesight due to pressure. Normally, I read white papers and technical docs for a living but I haven’t been able to do that for a few years.
It’s difficult for me to search the forum and find the info I need. Even though that was basically my job description, previously.

Could someone post some good links to ES surgery that I could watch? It makes me feel much better.
Thank all of you.

Literally youtube has a few, under the keywords Eagle’s syndrome surgery. There are both internal and external ones, a good one external is made by some Italians as far as I remember.

Here ya go!

The last one has a non-verbal tutorial at the beginning & intermittently throughout. The surgery starts at about 1:13 in the video.

I know it’s easier said than done where worrying comes into play. After all, who am I to preach the “don’t worry” statement…my worry skills are superior! But I wanted to assure you, you are in excellent care! I just had a call with Dr Omlie again yesterday and he is such an easy-going specialist and takes all the time needed to answer questions and in such a way that is more “human” terms and not so “clinical”.

Soon you’ll be on the flip side of all this and the hard part will be behind you! Sending you good vibes for peace and calm :blush:

Vertigo makes it so it’s very difficult to navigate grocery aisles (apparently it’s too visually “busy”)
However, Rachel (my friend staying with me) is taking me shopping, based on the list from the group, later today. Her only charge is donuts for breakfast. :wink:
