I have made a HUGE improvement the past 2 weeks. The first 4 weeks were basically static in recovery with a couple ok days, then a day or 2 not so great. I am now off all medicines except aspirin which the doctor mandates. I have been exercising and ramping that up a little bit as well. I feel just about ready to start work again (I feel ready but i have a very active job walking dogs and don’t want to overdo it. )
My head still feels like it has a mud mask on and I still have a few weird pains every now and then but they aren’t bad.
I am still not clear on how much exercise is ok because the nurse said, “you can do everything except life heavy weights”, but the resident I talked to last week said I should only be doing light walking or stairs. ???
I am feeling pretty much normal except for small pains I can live with.
After a few years of my own health issues, I have a few good days after surgery hoping for this to be my last issue. Last weekend we had to take my husband to the ER. He was diagnosed with a brain demyelating disease (such as MS), but we don’t know what yet. If his symptoms had appeared a few weeks ago, I wouldn’t have been able to handle it emotionally.
