Curently I am living with my parents for the last seven months.I am eager to return to Santa Cruz as I have been there more than a few years and have thorougly enjoyed the friends I've made.
Wondering how you are doing and how much you have recovered.
My one year mark passed and I was told there is nothing/no special therapy that I can try to get better.
Wondering if being on computer or being on the phone or eating spicy food make your conditions worse?
In my case, these make my numbness worse. The doctors said there is no connection.
Hi, I stumbled on this website and still don't know how to use it.
Exactly 3 month ago, I had a brain surgery performed by Dr. Steingerg to remove a cavernous malformation.
You are right about Dr. S. being a blessing but he and his staff are too busy so the after care is not so great.
I was looking forward to my 3 month anniversary but my recovery is not as great as I hoped.
Best of luck to you.
