As most of you know I had a second surgery on 12/4. On 12/8 I was feeling on top of the world, like everything was finally going to be OK.
Well on the 9th and 10th I still felt better then pre op but my burst of energy I had on the 8th was gone. I had been having little twinges of tingling etc but nothing unbearable or unexpected.
On the 11th the muscle twitching in my legs became so bad I could not stay in one position for more than 5-10 minutes, I was in constant motion, and at bed time was unable to stop my legs from moving. I added Neurontin back to my med schedule (I tried so hard to avoid it) Sleep finally came at 3am. I started with a 600 mg that night. I tried to not take it during the day on the 12th but realized I would be in the same boat by bedtime. I am taking 300 in the am and afternoon and 600 at night, and based on how i feel tonight, will be increasing again. And so the tiredness/fatigue/lack of energy pre op is back. I am hopeful that this is still part of the healing process, but have not had any opportunity to Christmas shop, look at lights, see the beauty and excitement of the children at the mall visiting Santa. My kids decorated for me (I love them so) while I was in the hospital in case I didn't feel up to it. The whole thing really has me having terrible crying spells, my poor husband doesn't know what to do anymore.I have watched all my favorite Christmas shows,and play carols during the day.I know I have so much to be great full for, but can't seem to shake this unhappy feeling. Thank you all for listening,
May God Bless and keep you,
