Hi everyone! I posted on here several weeks ago about how I was going to have this surgery done. I had some of the kindest people lift me up with encouraging words and in prayer. I wanted to give an update. I didn't want y'all to think I forgot about all of you! I'm now 2 weeks post op and I feel better than ever. The nausea after the surgery was the worst part. I felt very sick for about the first week after the surgery. The recovery was harder than I expected it to be. I felt really terrible the first week. I was nauseous, very weak, my head hurt really bad and I slept a lot. But now that I've hit the 2 week mark I'm feeling normal again. I forgot what "normal" felt like. The next day after my surgery I brushed my teeth for the first time without it hurting in months. I almost cried. The pain was gone completely when I woke up from surgery. I wasn't expecting it to be gone automatically but it was. People have asked me if I would ever do this surgery again if need be. The answer is absolutely, 100% YES. This surgery has given me my life back. I'm weaning off my medication now so I'm hoping to be off all meds in 4-6 weeks. I'm actually going back to work come this Saturday. I'm excited about that! I just wanted to give everyone an update and let everyone know how my surgery was for me. I will be more than willing to answer any questions or concerns anyone has. Whether it be about MVD surgery or this horrible condition. I've had it for 6 years so I know a lot about it! If anyone does choose to have this surgery I recommend someone who has done a few hundred with at least an 80% success rate. Just because I'm feeling good again doesn't mean I have forgotten all of you. I know exactly what this condition does to a person and how life doesn't seem worth living at times. If you want me to pray for you comment below and I promise you I'll pray for you every single night.
Love to you all,
