So last week I had an accident on a film set where by I ended up being thrown forward and hitting my head off the windscreen of a vehicle when the person driving it crashed into something stationary. Long story short, I went to A&E later in the day and I was examined via a series of hands on tests (no scan) and told by a doctor that it was likely I had suffered a mild concussion and that I should rest up.
I have taken her advice and been resting for the most part. I have found myself sleeping more. I have the occasional ache in my head, only lasts for a couple of seconds, nothing extended. However today I noticed when I was walking down the stairs that I had something like pins and needles in my feet and lower legs, that along with what can only be described as reduced sensitivity in the same areas.
The reason for my posting here is that on the 29th of this month I am due to be going in for surgery. I am trying to get an appointment with my GP before then, however what I have read online points to me having symptoms of a possible post-concussion syndrome.. Is it safe for me to be going in for surgery? I plan on telling the anesthetist what's happened.
Bit of background about myself: I'm very fit and healthy, try to eat clean, I don't smoke or drink at all and this is the first time I have ever experienced any kind of head injury.
