I have been reading this forum for quite a while since my ES diagnosis half a year ago. All the tips and experiences have been really helpful to me. Though I decided to share my own experience as well and say thank you to everyone who shared their‘s in order to help others.
I had surgery last week to remove my styloid process. I am pretty amazed with the fact that I could go home after surgery without staying in the hospital. I felt pretty weak for the first few days after surgery but pain was very manageable with the medication I got.
Recovery from this surgery is definitely slow process but I am happy I took this step and look forward to see how ES symptoms will improve after recovery from the surgery.
Thanks for all the pre and post surgery tips and experiences.
Thank you for your post, chi-chi! I’m glad your surgery is done. Healing can take awhile, sometimes even up to a year for nerves to recover. Be patient & listen to your body - rest when it asks & your recovery will go more smoothly.
