I had my C5/C6 foraminotomy on Tues8/19. My first shower on Wednesday went without any problems. The second one on Friday, I was dizzy and had to sit down afterwards and needed help
to dry off etc.
Today my third shower was scary:
I noticed after taking the brace off that I was a bit shaky. Got in time shower and found myself on the shower floor crying not much later. I managed to get back up and turn the water off and get out and passed out again in the bathroom. I hope I did not twist or hurt my neck since I was not wearing my brace. My husband came to my rescue but it sure was scary.
Anyone else experienced something like this?
I will get a chair in the shower but honestly I am just scared to even think about taking my brace off again.
