Brain Surgery: How Was Your Recovery?

Rate This

Patti describes how she feels since having brain surgery to correct a cerebrospinal fluid leak (CFL).

Today I feel like I am probably at 80% of what I was before. Where I am lacking or where I am off a bit is that I’m having to take some anxiety medications because they diagnosed me with posttraumatic stress syndrome after that everything that happened, which they said you know, probably is normal for the amount of trauma I went through for five months from start to end of where I am now.

But, that’s about it besides not feeling as on it that I care to feel. I need more rest than I did before and that’s a big deal to get past is the stamina part, being able to do the things you want to do when you want to do them and I am not quite there yet, but I will be.
