Good morning all! I am now 7 weeks since my DBS surgery. Yes! That is the answer if anyone asks if I am happy with my decision to have the surgery. I am now walking briskly each day, active with my bookkeeping clients, and have rejoined society as an active participant. I am also "in training" for driving the four hours it takes to get to my daughter's house. Yesterday, I "passed" the two hour driving test. I still take 10 regular sinemet, but have dropped the patch and 4 extended release sinemets. Best of all, my outlook on life has gone from that of a recluse to venturing out into the world again. Has it been easy? No. Has it been hard? At times. I am a strong person, so perhaps that has helped me. At the core of it is the drive to fight this insidious disease with everything I can muster. Don't ever give up!! Ever!! Thank you to all who have continued to support me with your notes of encouragement!! Have a wonderful day! Annie
P.S. Yes, my hair has grown - it is about 3/4 inch long now. Hooray!
