On January 22nd, 2019 I had decompression surgery. The neurosurgeon specialized in Chiari Type 1 procedures and I completely trust him. I woke up from surgery feeling pretty good, minus the pain I felt from surgery itself. I noticed that my right eye didn’t twitch when I woke up from surgery but my vision was still a bit fuzzy. Prior to surgery my symptoms came and went, it I exerted myself or used my upper body too much I’d give myself a headache for a few days. The main symptoms I experienced prior to surgery were vertigo, leg weakness, lower back pain, right arm weakness, right sided skull base/occipital headache, blurred vision, nearsightedness, muscle tightness in the neck shoulder region, problems swallowing, etc. Since surgery ( 18 days) I was feeling pretty out of it, mind and body wise. I feel like my senses are dulled, like my brain isn’t receiving the signals of touch or pain effectively. Has anyone else experienced this after surgery? Just an overall feeling of dullness if sense? Obviously the cerebellum is the epi-center of communication for your sense so it’s probably just recovering but I just want to be sure it’s not something I should be more concerned with. I also have developed tinnitus in my left ear, which is odd bc all of my symptoms were specific to my right side prior to surgery. I hope it’s just temporary bc I am going insane with the ringing. I still have back pain and muscle weakness in my legs, I’ve been pretty active since the surgery though, which I’m scolding myself for now bc I hope I didn’t impede my recovery. Active in the sense of taking walks and moving around, I’ve done laundry and cooked since I’ve been out of the hospital so hopefully I didn’t add any damage. Anywho, anyone who’s had the surgery and can correlate to the experience would make me feel better, I just feel so like bland, it’s annoying.
