Completely deaf ear is implanted

I had my surgery yesterday and got implanted with the Advanced Bionics mid-scala electrode. Surgery took about two hours, and pain in recovery was bad the first hour and I just felt miserable for a couple hours after that. I got home 6 hours after surgery ended and felt reasonably good by managing pain with Percocets. I'm not a back sleeper, so trying to sleep was a bit of a challenge. I slept mostly on my side and tried some on my stomach, but pain kept waking me. 

This morning I still feel okay with pain meds. I have to take off the compression bandage today so more to come.
