A few months ago I had part of my VNS removed. The doctor that did the surgery had never done a VNS removal. Since then I have had constant headaches.  I'm scheduled to have another surgery in about a week to remove more or all of the remaining device. Unfortunately it is with the same surgeon. Does anyone live or know of someone in the Seattle, WA area that has experience removing these devices? Thanks so much for any advice you have!

 Smiley Hey Eric!  Has Cyberonics been of any assistance in locating a surgeon?  Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone in your area to refer you on to.  We've got some Members from the area you're asking about, and I hope they will pass thru soon and see your post.  Keep us updated!

   Hey Eric.  Sorry to respond twice in the same day. I'm not sure if my email went out. If you received it great, if not let me know, I can always post it. I just don't like posting phone numbers of docs even if the docs numbers are in the phone books and online. I hope all goes well. Stay in touch if you can and lots of luck. Take care of yourself.

Thank you guys for your thoughts.  I really appreciate it.  I actually just got a few names from Cyberonics oddly enough and I'm gonna follow up on them next week.  I'll let you all know.
