I really can't believe how well this is going. I still have some minor numbness/tingling in my hands but legs/feet are back to normal. My balance is really good. The past 3 days I took an hour long walk. Today I showered myself & washed my hair (with some difficulty & breaking my restrictions slightly).
I still have a lot of muscle spasms & aches but they are fairly well controlled with Flexeril 10mg Q8hr along with 1 Percocet about 4times/day. The only thing is I'm tired pretty much all the time. Maybe it's the pills but I don't think that's a lot of meds. I stopped taking the Benadryl & just put up with the itching cause I was soooo sleepy. The bruises on my hands & wrists from the nerve conduction studies are very ugly looking but the swelling has come down. Anyone else have that happen to them?
Well, think I'll take a little nap. My eyes are closing as usual. I just wanted to give those preparing for this surgery a success story to give them hope. Take care everyone
