You may (or may not!) remember that Sept 2013 I was very ill and needed an operation on my brain for a cerebellar bleed. I was discharged from hospital Jan 3rd 2014 and have been recovering at home ever since, albeit too slowly for my liking.
I had to attend a neurology clinic at Addenbrookes Hospital as an
out-patient. They seem very pleased with my recovery, which is good
news. I may be driving again in the next few months. They have to write to the DVLA.
are doing a further MRI scan June 30th to see if my remaining giddiness
when walking/turning can be helped. In all, it was a good outcome -
nothing dramatic to report. Giddiness should continue to improve given
time - just be patient - as the brain learns to cope and rewires itself. I guess I was expecting to get instantly better whereas brain injuries go at their own pace! I am impatient to fully recover.
I am luckier than many. Apart from giddiness when walking/turning and profound tiredness a lot of the time (like M.E.) I have few other problems. Some are left with permanent limb paralysis or worse. As far as I am aware my intellect is pretty intact and I have all my faculties intact. I really hope to avoid any further invasive surgery.
