Since January when I had a craniotomy to remove a cyst my life has changed massively. The aftercare from the hospital has been non existent and my GP is not an expert in offering practical advice on recovery. Not having met anyone who has gone through the stages of recovery I am hoping for some advice. I guess like many that going from having an active life with sporting past times to feeling wiped out from doing nothing much is a downer.
My present situation is that I am back at work part-time and trying to increase my hour's but struggling even on lesser hours. I work shifts and nights which does not help. and my car licence was revoked because of the operation.
What I struggle to understand and deal with is that my recovery is not like a gradual healing process. Some days I feel almost normal and go for walks in the countryside or along the coast which I love. But it never lasts. Within an hour or 2 of getting home I invariably get bad headaches ,sore eyes and feel terrible or if not the following day.
Same with working I can be fine one week but the next really struggle and need a night off or to go home early.
Wonder when it's going to stabilise or how long it takes to not keep burning out with no warning.
Any advice tips appreciated
