Get out of your own house and see things through another's window. Your experience is not universal. Develop a little empathy before making your recommendations.
I never said there was no pain involved. But they give you pain medicine which especially for a child will help dramatically. As I said before I have had surgeries since was about 4. I remember none of them. I felt no pain from them. None that i remember anyways. A child gets angry and sad if they fall down you can't expect them to feel no pain, but as I said they don't remember any of it.
You get out of your house and see things through another's window. Just because you have no problem with being deaf doesn't mean that your child or another's won't have problems with it. This is a cruel world we live in. You think your child won't get made fun of because he/she is deaf? But wait they wouldn't hear it if they were being made fun of so I suppose that doesn't matter. Unless of course they get beat up. Then that might be classified as torture.
