It has been 2 weeks and 3 days post surgery for Abbie, things have been going well so far. Abbie had to go back on one of her meds to control the TN residual pain that has come back. But the doctor is optimistic that it is all from the swelling and irritation from the work he did in there.
We will have to come back in May for her 3 month follow up and in August for her 6 month follow up. We will discuss her MVD on the left side on her 6 month follow up visit seeing continues to have TN pain on the left side. But being on Tegretol is controlling that pain, so we will play it by ear and see what happens.
We are scheduled to fly home monday evening from here and arrive home early Tuesday morning.
We will be following up with the neurologist and her primary doctor when we get back, Abbie will be allowed to return to school 1 week after we get back and has gym restrictions for many months following, but I don't see that to be a problem with her.
Please continue your prayers that this is just from the swelling and that the surgery worked. We can still use everyones support. That we have to travel back and fourth to California for the next year and possibly longer if she requires another surgery for the left side.
love to all for your continued support and prayers.
love Abbie and Dawn (Mom)
