@spotiche5- That is a very good point, because brain surgery can be traumatic in so many ways. In addition to dealing with changes in appearance, many people have to face feeling uncomfortable or sick for a long time, loosing various sensations, or even having to relearn certain tasks.
People facing brain surgery do not have to face these uncomfortable post-op side effects alone. Many communities offer support groups where patients can find advice, comfort, and new friends. Hospital staff members can direct brain surgery patients to the best resources for getting involved in such support groups.
