Five months since surgery (Right Slyloidectomy)

I think my fellow Eagle Syndrome friends deserve to know the progress I made since having surgery.  I am very happy with the outcome to say the least.  I honestly can’t complain about the little pain and discomfort I experience at times.

The tinnitus I have are some days annoying especially when the humidity is very high.  Not sure whether that will clear after I have my left side done.  I don’t have a date on that side simply because I want to put it off for as long as I can. We all know the risks and the benefits and I simply don’t want to put my body through surgery if it is not absolutely necessary. To be quite honest I think I am just terrified of being on the operating table for such a long period of time.

The facial numbness I still experience is very mild and the overall sensation is returning to normal slowly but surely.  I remember with my cervical spine surgery it took over 12 months to fully restore so to speak.

I hope this puts a lot of fellow sufferers mind at ease.  If you have a surgeon who has a good solid knowledge and experience in the neck, face and throat area you have your life back!

Please feel free to contact me – I don’t mind at all.  Just remember: Don’t give up, press on!
