I’m back at home since Sunday last week and about 3 weeks after surgery yet. Was a nice flight but still exhausting. I wished we could have stayed longer. Liked it in California.
I’m still recovering well, pain is some times more some times less but luckily very bearable. Some symptoms which I had connected to jugular vein compression improved already significantly. Now I’m still dealing with heavy muscle tension around the incision and blockings of upper cervical spine. This was described by Dr Samji in advance and I’m doing some careful stretching . I have to wait 3 more weeks before visiting my osteopaths again.
Yesterday evening it felt quite good and free on the operated side and somehow narrow on the right side, where some thick styloid rest is still left behind by European surgeons. Maybe I have to go for the other side again. We will see…
Hopefully pain and muscle tension will improve further over time but I’m thinking the jugular decompression was already worth it and very important.
For those who suffer longer after surgery: Please don’t let this disencourage you. I had previous surgeries and there was much more and longer pain afterwards. It improves over time. Now it is maybe not that bad because of present unsensitive scar tissue due to previous surgeries.
Thank you all and especially @Isaiah_40_31, who supported us so unbelievable fantastic locally, very much again! I owe a large part of the good progress to you.
