recovery from surgery has been slow

  • my recovery from sinus surgery has been very slow. i've had a headache almost daily, but it isn't a migraine ( thank god). after the first week i started with passing the clots, which is very painful. i went back to work after 2 weeks. had to go home the first day back because my head hurt so bad. and the next 3 days i dealt with pain and the clots.

     

    i had a good day on sunday, but yesterday i started with clots and bleeding out the right side of my nose. 4 hours later i'm still sick from it, and my head is killing me. i go back to te doctor this afternoon. i can hardly wait.

     

    everyone i have talked to tells me that i should be done passing the clots, yet it goes on. doctor better have some answers today.

      doctor said today that the infection is gone finally. i haven't had a migraine since 10 days before i had it done.

       

      the sinus headache is finally letting up. they don't tell you that you keep a headache and pressure for the first few weeks, but you do until all the gel pack is gone.

       

      only time will tell if it has really helped, but i am starting...

      we had another low pressure system move through last night and this morning, bringing severe thunderstorms. i usually am in the bed in tears due to the pain, but my head never got bad. my ears hurt during a few of the storms ( one of which might have spawned a small tornado) and i had pressure, but NOTHING like i usually have.

      If in fact one trigger has been taken care of wouldn't that be great to see a reduction in your Migraine frequency?  Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!!  Smile

      they just really should have warned me to use a scarf when going out in the cold air. i stopped to get gas last night ( temp was near freezing) and since air can now get in my isnuses it was very painful.

      but so far so good. it's nice to be pain free, and this is the longest that i have been headahce free in over 3 years.
