My hubby got his DBS on Oct. 1. We were very confident in our doctor and we are thankful for all the prayers going to God on his behalf! We live in the USA, Texas and his Social Security Advantage insurance plan paid soooo well for it!!! Thanks to our Lord!! If anyone has any questions about how it went feel free to ask or email me.
We have some questions for those that have had your DBS recently. We hope you can remember some of the unpleasant things to help us know if they are "normal". We, of course understand everyone is different and no two people are alike. Did you have a strange warm, hot sensation at the site of the power pack? Did it eventually go away. Did it feel like it was moving? Leo states it goes up and down.
Oh! We also want to let those know that are still thinking about doing this that he felt soooo good after the surgery for about 2 weeks!! The doctor said it was due to the DBS being on while the tested it. He said some people have this happen and some don't but it is a positive sign. My hubby was sooo happy and felt wonderful and hopeful. His walk was sooo much better! His facial expressions were beautiful!! he had NO MORE PAIN!!! and we think that of course was the BEST of all!!! We keep trying to be patient and not get our hopes up tooo much but oh it is sooo hard!! 3 more weeks and we see his nurologist to get it turned on!! We can't wait!!!
