I've been checking often for an update. I'm so happy you are feeling better and on the mend. I can kind of imagine how your vision could be a side effect that would improve in time.

So this recovering is having it's ups and downs. :roll I was doing really well, double vision was starting to improve (still is Thank God!) but for the last two days I've been flat on my back due to almost debilitating headaches. I had to call the doctor today because I was starting to get scared. We ran into these headaches in the hospital when I was having issues with the spinal fluid leak. So we're trying to be conservative and just keep me flat on my back since that helps to relieve some of the pain and hope we're just hitting a small bump. If things are not improved by tomorrow I'm heading back in, not sure if it'll be just the doctors office or the emergency room. Please say a prayer it's nothing major and I'll be able to simply have all my stitches removed on Friday and get some good news. Thank you again for all your thoughts and prayers, they have kept me going this far, I know they will get me there. :hp

Thank you all for the prayers. I was able to stay home but I'm on bed rest to help with the healing and pain. I get to go tomorrow and have my stitches removed and we will reevaluate the situation from there. Thank you all again!

Went to the doctor today and had all my stitches removed. They are very happy with my progress, of course I'm not allowed to drive for 2 more weeks and my return to work will not be until after 7/11/14. They want me to continue to stay on mostly bed rest and only do as much as I can without overdoing it. Wasn't exactly what I wanted to hear but they said with the complications I had and the fact we are only a few weeks out from surgery I'm at the point I *should* be with recovery. Thank you again for all of the prayers, I really do appreciate them!!

Things never seem to progress as quickly as we want them to, but you will get there. Just get your rest and we will continue with the prayers.

Thanks for thinking about me Debbie, I'm healing up more and more each day. I was able to start driving again this week so that was a huge mile stone for me! Gave me some of my freedom back. I'm still dealing with headaches and get worn out pretty easy but compared to what it was I'm doing a whole lot better! I get to return to the doctor for my final check up on July 11th and plan to return to work on July 14th. I still am so grateful for all of the thoughts and prayers, I don't know if I would be where I am now without them.

Nichole,
So glad things are improving. Do the Dr.'s anticipate the headaches will go away or is it something you will have to live with? You continue to be in my prayers. Keep the faith!

Nicole...wonderful news! I'm so happy to read you are doing better and sounds FAR better than before the surgery. You've been through a lot, but have stayed so strong, and now on the road to a full recovery. :Clap

Terri, the headaches are already getting better from what they were. They will go away but it's going to take some time. They also believe that my TN was causing me to have the migraines that I have suffered from since I was 14. So just knowing I won't have those any more makes these headaches now seem like nothing. It's been a long 6 (almost 7) month journey but now that we're nearing the end it's easier to deal with. Now is one of those times I'm so grateful that my hair grows as fast as it does, they had to shave my hair down to the scalp, so it has been nice these days when I wear it up to not have it quite so noticeable. Again thank you all for your concern and prayers!! Love you all!

I am so glad you are feeling better. Its been a long journey. I pray everyday you feel bettr. I always think of you as my sister also suffers from TN. She also had severe migraines as a child and young adult but my mom, older sister and all my female cousins from my mom's side suffer from migraines. I was the lucky one that never had one until 23. Praying for prompt healing and a successful return to work and daily life.

Just wanted to pop in for one last update! I had my last follow up doctor appointment on Friday and was given the go-ahead to be able to return to work today! I'm also able to begin returning to my normal life, just making sure I ease into it all. Thank you all again for the prayers, good thoughts and support through all of this. It's been a long 7 months and I'm so glad to be able to end this chapter and start a new one. :love
