1 Month Update
I saw good results for around 8-12 days initially. Shortly after that I started getting the cold right hand, foot drop, weak right leg, stretching leg after sitting for short amount of time, head aches (pressure), word finding, right leg bouncing. Word finding is bothersome again. Now that being said, I seem to have continued getting stronger, kept the balance improvements(that may be because of the strength?), there are days, and even times within a day that I can tell my walking is better again ,that includes foot drop, still dreaming again, cold RH actually seems more numb than cold and less frequent, fewer head aches. I forgot what it was like to dream
Things are definitely better that pre-op but, at least for the time being, less than they were the first week or so. At least for now things come and go but still are staying on the plus side. I am not going to rush to a decision as to whether veins stayed open or not. I think I am just going to take it one month at a time until my three month date. Along the way I will confer with my DR about what direction to take.
