Default just had mdv surgery 4wks ago

Hi i'm lola i had mvd surgery 4 wks ago. I have only just began to have any relief from the surgery. 2 days ago i didn't have any pain till the evening meal. It felt great but it did not last. The last two days have been partly pain free as well. Is that normal? Will i get more relief as the days go by. See dr again the 9th of sept. Did not receive much info on what to expect. I feel like i'm on a merry go round of pain. Up and down with emotions as well. Can i expect more relief. Dr said give it only i month and i would know. Am allergic to most pain meds i get itchy and break out. Wearing my glassses hurt before the surgery and it still hurts. Need them for this and all reading. Anyone got hope for me.

Welcome Lola,
I'm glad you had someone welcome you, and direct you to the right forum. Thanks for joining NT.

I hope you find answers to your questions. We learn from each other. I am on the MS forum and T.N is an issue with many of us.

I don't know who had an MDV here but maybe you want to read a few forums or do a search for MDV, with out search feature.

I hope you feel better now that your surgery was done.

Good luck and nice to meet you.

May happiness be at your door. May it knock early, stay late, and leave the gift of good health behind.
