Hello, Thanks for the update. It seems you’re doing well and that’s a good thing since yourI'm still having some discomfort on and around the incision and was going to ask about that. It's nothing terrible and I imagine it will go away over time, but it's different from the first time.
I recall Josephine the nurse mentioning she had numbness for quite a long time after one of her surgeries and finally realized it was as good as it was going to get and basically forgot about it, only to realize a few years later, it was gone. I guess it may still happen for you also in regard to your first surgery. Another member once said if he was only ever 90% better than he was before surgery, he’d take it. I’m sure many of us would agree. I know I do. Through my time here, I’ve read of many experiencing improvement up to two years and longer. You’re doing great and you’ll get there!I have the numbness too and I actually still have a little bit of numbness on the left side and that surgery has been well over a year ago. For me the numbness is a small price to pay for the relief from the pain
