3rd Brain Surgery! Just would like some support!

Please anyone if you have any recommendations I would appropriate it!
Don't mean to offend anyone but If you are going to ask me why I went with a certain surgeon or ask me why I made  the decisions I made. Please don't respond to my question. I just need support not criticize me.
The reason I say this is I was on two brain tumor support sites & instead of people being supportive some people really crossed the line private messaging me asking me why I was not going with certain surgeons or even looking up my current surgeon or even asking me why I  was going to do a third surgery and I should wait & watch.
When no one even knew about my case.Its a rare brain tumor not a lot of docs specialize w/ this type of tumor. Epidermoid its a hard to remove & find once the head is open
So sorry for writing this before I ask mt question, here is my question :)

How long did everyone wait to go back to work?
How long has your recovery process been going?
My 3rd brain surgery was only 2 1/2 hrs. The first two were over 7 hrs long.
I'm thinking that this brain surgery is not a big deal but I also do have to understand that its brain surgery.
I was knocked out my head was opened and my brain was cut!
I'm super tired still waking up with headaches. I'm trying to stay active doing yoga moving around my house I have even signed up for a class at my local JC to keep my brain working.
I have been off work for now 4 months. My doctor took me off work for 6 months.
That's pretty much my story!
Thanks for sharing your story with me :)
