    Hi Tiffany,


    You've been on roller coasters before, right? And so you're aware of what you're in for?

    I'd go with the doctor's recommendation--use your own judgment. If it's been 2 years since the cranioplasty, there wouldn't be any risk of infection, IMO, but I don't have medical expertise.

    I myself stay away from roller coasters simply because they can and often do make people vomit or have other symptoms that are unpleasant. I just don't see putting myself through that experience and don't particularly enjoy the "thrill" of doing something frightening, but I know many others don't feel as I do.
