Hello everyone here's my story.
I was rushed in hospital aprox 8 weeks ago where it was discovered I had a larg cyst attached to my lower brain and spine.
I was operated on the next day where they made a far lateral approach for excision of the neuroenteric cyst.
For the first few weeks I felt quite ok but then started to struggle with it all.
After having 60 staples removed I finally realised how huge the scar was and how dangerous the operation had been.
The side my head was operated feels completely numb and even though I take cocodamol it feels quiet painful .
I'm a very active man but find it difficult to rest but I seem to be very tired and very panicky all the time.
it's getting close to my sick note ending and I don't know what to do about work due to my current symptoms as my partnerhas been amazing but I don't want her seeing me stressed and worked up .
There has been a total lack of support from hospital so far so any advice welcomed.
