Getting Better -- Surgery Update

Postby akbrowneyes » Thu Jun 21, 2007 9:46 pm

Although the pain prior to my shunt placement is still here, I am gaining better control of my legs and walking now without a walker. My balance still has a long way to go, but I feel better from the surgery. I hope they are right and that the syrinx will continue to collapse and that eventually some of my pain will subside.

Thank you for all the messages at the hospital, they are so appreciated.

Val, this is such good news!! Thank you for letting us know. Are you back home in Alaska? If so, how was the trip post op for you?

I pray things will continue to improve. What great news that you are able to walk without the walker. God is so good!

Hi, you are up late too then!! I'm just a few hours southeast of you, at home. Thinking of you and hope you can get some rest tonight. Sometimes it's so hard to sleep in the hospital with the nurses waking you up for meds and BP etc, or else they are talking out in the hall and keeping you awake!

big , but gentle hugs
