Just a Little Brain Surgery

Going home today!  Thursday, August 23, 2018.

Monday, August 21, 2018 I had brain surgery to hopefully fix the pain I have been having from the blood vessel wrapped around my Trigeminal nerve.  To read more about Trigeminal neuralgia click here.  The Trigeminal nerve is a nerve that runs from the brain stem to the face.  The procedure that I had done is called microvascular decompression So far so good...the pain seems to be gone.


Morning of surgery for my MRI brain mapping.

And my lovely incision.  There are about 13 staples in my head.  Thursday, August 23, 2018.

 I am feeling okay.  There is not a lot of pain; mostly burning and itching from the start of healing. I am told that I cannot do much for 6 to 12 weeks (at first I was told about 2 weeks and a much smaller incision).  I guess this leaves more time for genealogy and crafting while I recover.  And lets face it...no housework for 12 weeks is win win for me!
