  Hi, welcome back!!
Thanks for the update and yes, as mentioned above, u will feel out of whack post op....it takes time.

As for the fit, or seizure like issue, that is possible too, we have had a few members that post op did develop seizures and or epilepsy....so, if it is something like that ur Dr should be able to tell u, but it could also just be the over stimulation of the nerves.....this can be a common issue post op.

What do u mean by fit?
