I'm really depressed today because a post-surgery symptom has gotten worse. I have a call into my neurosurgeon's office describing the symptom and I'm waiting for them to get back to me. My right hand has a severe tremor. I can't do anything with it and it's so frustrating. I've come so far since the surgery, and through it all, I have tried to stay positive and haven't been scared. For some reason, this is getting to me. My husband was trying to see exactly what was happening and when, so he could describe it to the doctor, and when I saw my right hand shaking uncontrollably, I lost it. I was sobbing because I couldn't stop it. There was nothing I could do. I don't know why this is happening. I don't think it's a very common thing that happens after retrosigmoid surgery. I think maybe that's why I'm freaking out. I've read and been comforted by the stories of so many of you. It seemed like even though we heal differently, we all go through many common hurdles.
If anybody has dealt with hand tremors/shaking after surgery, how long after surgery did you start noticing it, what did you do, if anything, and did it eventually get better??
My surgery was for a right-side AN and my right hand is the one shaking.
I'd appreciate any responses or encouraging words, because today is a bad day for me. Thanks.
