6 Weeks Post-Op

This Tuesday will be 6 weeks since my decompression surgery. Ya know..every time I think about it..it is hard to believe it...but I had BRAIN SURGERY! I am happy to report that I am doing well. I feel good and look even better! My pain is pretty much gone. When I feel tight in the neck area, I take 800mg of Ibuprofen and that does the trick. I still have some tingling on the right side of my face...but even that is starting to lessen. Well, it has either lessened or I am used to it...lol. Whatever the case may be...I am ok with it. To be honest, if all I have to deal with is some minor tingling on my face...I will take it!

I started working this week and am glad to get back to my life. I am making sure I take my time and not to overdo it. I went to a wedding reception yesterday and danced a little....I was tired today...but it was so much fun!

I hope you all are having a great day!

Keep Pushing!!

I am soooo happy for you. Glad things are going so well.

I’m so glad to hear good news! It’s hard always seeing/hearing the bad stuff, but I guess that’s what we get to live with. Hearing your news makes it much less stressful for me to get my results tomorrow. :slight_smile: Thank you. Keep taking it slow and pay attention to your body. Yay! ((Hugs))
