I generally have issues watching stuff like that, but it wasn't bad. Was pretty interesting. Glad to see that the surgery was a success.

Dana White calls recent ear surgery a success

From MMAFighting.com:

Quote:
Dana White is already on the road to recovery a day after undergoing extensive ear surgery.

The UFC president told MMAFighting.com Wednesday that his ear surgery went "great" and he was already flying home to Las Vegas. White went under the knife at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

White has been battling Ménière's disease for over a year. According to MayoClinic.com, Ménière's disease "is a disorder of the inner ear that causes spontaneous episodes of vertigo — a sensation of a spinning motion — along with fluctuating hearing loss, ringing in the ear, and sometimes a feeling of fullness or pressure in your ear."

White wrote via text message that he was "sore but that will go away in a few days" following the surgery. He added that he will not be flying to Brazil for UFC on FX 7 this weekend. He hopes the surgery will cure the excruciating pain he has felt as of late.

The 43-year-old White started to feel the effects of the disease at the end of 2011, and it later forced him to miss his first UFC event in 11 years when the disease prevented him from flying to Fairfax, Va., for UFC on FUEL TV 3 in May.

"This is a different procedure," he said in October of the surgery. "They're going to try where they go in and cut the back of my ear open and they go in through there. They insert a tube, and it's supposed to give me a 70 percent chance of not having an attack."

Naturally, if you say "do not watch", I must watch it! I made it up to 5:45.

Then I thought I'd pass out. My hat is off to Neez and Amy for being nurses, it takes a steely constitution and strong stomach.

It *was* very interesting though and I hope it's a great success for Dana.

I watched it, and thought it was quite brave of him to do it, and also let it be filmed and shown like that.
