Hang in there girl.....I spent 2 nights in ICU then 1 night on a regular floor. I did not have total numbness, but I still have shades of numbness now. BUT, it is nothing after dealing with all the pain. I hurt, not "knife jabs" for several months. I have been off all meds since about 6 weeks after surgery. I had a few issues with my ear after surgery. It started about 3 months after surgery. It just felt like I had fullness, but went away as fast as it had come. The last few months I have had several jabs, but nothing like before. I really do think that if I let myself get extremely tired I get a little pain. I think once you have this condition, you will always have a few "issues", but compared to the before surgery and after surgery, I know I am extremely BLESSED... Please feel free to call or text if you have any more questions.
Why did you have to have the 2nd MVD surgery? How long ago was your 1st MVD surgery and were you completely pain free after that?
Hi Nina... Dr Kim did my second mvd. The man is awesome. He was the same way with me too. Lol...I had my surgery on April 6th 2011. I was h'm the next day. Yes..the next day.
