RNS in a month or soon to it... pain?

Reaction score
I will be getting the RNS in about a month, and I'm very excited. I'm looking forward to it changing my life! But... how bad does it really hurt? How long did you all stay in the hospital? And when did it start to work for you all? Any regrets? Sorry for the questions! I'm just so excited... I want this surgery so bad... I'm so upset with how epilepsy has set me back... but I am sure the RNS can help! How much of your hair did they have to shave off? My neurologist said not much... I have way short hair anyways so I don't mind... I'm just wondering.
