I had the decompression surgery 2 years ago and nothing's changed. I still have these symptoms:
-sharp sting in head every now and again
-difficulty understanding and comprehending
-some difficulty reading
-balance ( walking, stumbling, tripping over feet, leaning)
I had an appointment with my neurosurgeon who did and excellent job, he told me that I'm doing great and I no longer need the routine check up, which is a good thing. I'm just concerned if these symptoms will go away. im afraid that these symptoms won't go away and I'll be dealing with this for the rest of my life. I don't talk to my wife about it anymore because I don't want her to feel like her efforts in trying to help me cop and be ok are in vain. In truth, I'm depressed. I don't think I'll ever get over these symptoms. I feel like I'm going to end up having Dementia or Alzheimer's and forgetting my family. That is what scares me the most. The only way I can deal with these life altering symptoms is to hide behind a smile. I'm aware that there are far more severe cases that mine out there and I'm not saying that my case is more important.....just wanted to vent a little I guess
