I found out last Friday that I actually have some titanium screws and ties attaching the bone plate to the rest of my skull. Pretty nifty. You can see the border of the plate they removed for the surgery (the kerf is actually a little big for my taste). It also looks from the x-ray like there might still be a small hole in the skull (drilled out to insert the bone saw?), but hopefully I'll find out more about that this week when I speak with my radiation oncologist. Anyone out there have any theories on what that dark spot might be?
