Re: Week 4 - Post Op
- Hi Ken...
Yep - you are not alone. I am 8 weeks post op and finally have some
relief. Not to scare you though. The "pins and needles" feeling
started to subside and at least be tollerable at six weeks. I still
have very numb spots, but am told that could take up to a year for
the feeling to come back, and then I might not get all of it back. I
feel for you and am glad I am past the intense pins and needles
feeling. That feeling pretty much wiped me out. Hang in there, it
does get better!!!
- Ken, I'm 4 weeks post-op upper/genio and the pins and needles are
terrible! I was in Wal-Mart the other day and my husband reached over
to wipe something off my mouth (imagine that!) I let out a yell when
he touched my lips. It really shocks your system! I hear it's a good
thing to feel these sensations, but I agree that it is not fun!Marsha-
