@Isaiah_40_31 thank you
well you may be right there, I did have some issues with the lumbar disc bulges as well, but symptoms had resolved after some months of PT sessions
Maybe the couch angles are stirring things up again are contributing to that heel pain. I just feel it now when I wake from sleeping
@Jules thank you,yes I feel so fortunate for family, what a blessing they have all been.
my wife came out for the weekend , and recharged me with hugs and did some food prep❤️
So it’s the fifth day after surgery now and I have now slept up to five hours straight last night.( previously only 1-2 hours at a time) so I felt pretty rested today
Feeling pretty good over all.
The meds I have been taking every 5 hours and up till today that seemed to keep the pain tolerable, I forget and went into the six hour today, the pain ramped up for a bit and felt considerably heavy/irritated around the back of the head and ear area of the left side,
I made the mistake of trying to eat some cookies last night because I was feeling good, the chewing did not feel good at the jaw, or swallowing bites, so back to blended soft foods for now. lol
Ice bag has been good for relief and the stitch area is not as sensitive to touch, so just ice in a ziplock bag with paper towel is working well.
Doing about 10-20 min walks in the yard to keep me moving and that blood flowing, so far the squirrels are pretty amusing and make me laugh, I have seen a snake in the yard twice, the sky and mountains are just breathtaking
So far so good although I know it’s still soon
I do continue to have tinnitus all day, only varying in intensity
Head aches , after getting up a few times with whooshing in the ears , some imbalance but seams to go away after a minute or two ,
Had one blurry episode yesterday when tired about 30 mins
Some weird muscle spasms when I laugh is painful in the neck.lol
Nothing major so I am happy with the progress and hope full that that vein continues to open up and flow .
@CoHDa thank you ,
So sounds like your accent has resolved ? That would be great
I am just so exited to just heal already
I did finish that book you recommended. I liked it very much and thank you for the suggestion
What a on ordeal that man went trough. I really like his battery analogy, and this is very similar to what I experience on the daily when cognitively challenged, we will see what happens here as time goes on
I am exited to see what was removed and how much on the report as well as the flow from the venogram, if they ballooned the IJV during the process or not?
With what @stuuke is going through I am hopeful that Dr H was able to remove the styloid all the way to the base of the skull for enough clearance.
Thanks so much for everyone’s support and prayers
You guys are the best🤙
What about hot packs, would it also be recommended to use hot packs in between the cold packs? To help with blood flow and healing?
What about PT , is there a protocol for after ES surgery , or a best time to start ( one week or two weeks after?)
