I am baaack!!! Boy, what a week will do!!
Rhonda, so glad you are home already. good girl!
Radeck, I hope to meet !
Cheerleader, thanks for the Azygos vein word, tho I probably still have it wrong. I just cannot get it right.
Thanks to ALL of you for your support and energy and wishes and prayers. Truly thank you.
Ok, Today is one week post op. It is the first day I can open my right eye enough (ligh sensitivity and headache) to put on my glasses to see.
I took a shower and got dressed and went in for my first INR. Waiting for those results.
Still have a very bad 'headache' entire right side of head' neck, ear, eye, and top of head right side. BUT BETTER!!
I am eating everything I need to and have worked my way up to one regular Tylenol 2x/day. Remember I went off all pain meds in the hospital from my nausea, which the nurses said was very unusual from their short experiences with this.
I really take my hat off to the nursing staff at Stanford. Top Notch in my opinion.
There is one thing I do want to say. I DO NOT FEEL MY MS!!
Yes, I have pain from surg, etc, but I do not feel, and knock on wood here, the MS.
When I say that, I mean that crap MS fatigue in the morning when I wake, the sweating I generate to get a dish out of the dishwasher,
etc. I know. It has only been a week and my activities are limited BUT damn, I swear, I hope I am not imaginging this, but I feel BETTER!!
I do not like to say things out loud because I wtih MS I feel like I am always eating my words, but this is different.
I do not have the words to describe it, because I don't have enough time under my belt yet, but if I had to I would say I feel 'Good to Go.'
My right foot is still tingly from last month's attack but my left arm that has constant pain is at a ZERO. Ok, now I knock on wood.
Thank you all again for your amazing information, research, hours of typing in for all of us. This is good.
