Actually, my son had his decompression surgery 7 weeks ago. From the beginning he didn't feel better at all. The recovery never got easier. Two weeks ago....I took him to his Optomotrist and found out his double vision was due to his optic nerves swelling. He also had a pool of fluid in his lower skull area. We went to the emergency room and they did an MRI which confirmed the spinal fluid was backing up. Our neuro drained his incision area 3 times last week...each time 130 cc's of fluid had built up. They decided to redo the surgery...and found out that 2 stitches had torn from the decompression surgery. They patched him up..and did a lumbar drain for 3 days. As of today, he is home and feeling tremendously better!! I am telling this story because I know so many people sometimes need answers and help understanding why they feel a certain way. Thank goodness he is doing better!

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
