Post op


Hi friends, I wanted to post because I had my surgery 12/14 and so far its been a success. I of course am by no means pain free however my N S thinks I will with 2-3 months. I had a massive amount of fluid built up that was removed along with the top bone of my vertibre. There was a small tear in my dura that was repaired. I'm working on my recovery now. Taking it easy resting lots. Only problems im currently having is some numbness in the back of my head on the left side, some nausea, and of course I've. Been backed up since the surgery.


Great news that you are doing so well Krissy. Hope your recovery continues and your post-op discomfort settles quickly. Kindest, Jules
