3 weeks and a day
The spots where the frame was attached to my forehead look like little dents. There is still inflammation that makes the area around them feel like little hills and the tenderness remains. The spots on the back of my head feel a bit crusted (like a bad case of dandruff) and I am reminded of them with passing pain each time I lay my head down.
Tiredness comes and goes unpredictably as does a vague sense of vertigo. Headaches appear out of nowhere but happily vanish just as unexpectedly. Many times I feel perfectly healthy and energized.
The past few months I've been struggling with hot flashes that had all but disappeared for years. I am not sure that they have anything to do with the brain issue or perhaps hormones again out of whack due to my intentional weight loss. I scheduled a time to talk with my nurse practitioner in early March to investigate.
Three weeks gone, the journey continues.
