So I'm 10 days out from my venoplasty.
We went to the Garden Show on Thursday and it was hot, but I coped quite well. My feet did swell, but I was in my wheelchair from 10am til 9pm!! I also got a bad headache late in the afternoon, which would have normally had me heading for home and bed, but after a couple of hours it seemed to improve and by dinner it had almost gone.
A couple of friends commented that my complexion has improved and I don't look so tired around my eyes. I can't see it myself, but as I'd not seen them since before the procedure, I'll take their word for it.
Also yesterday at yoga, I was able to lift my arms a little higher over my head than I've done for years. (normally my teacher lifts them for me!!).
My hand continues to be stronger. I can now touch my thumb to all my fingers. (Not done that in years either) And reaching to pick up things is a little easier too.
My walking is still shot, and my improvements are still very small, but there are improvements. Each person with MS has a different combination of symptoms, so we will each have our own different recovery.
Good Luck to all those with their procedures next week especially to my dear friend 'Nean'.
