In March I'm finally seeing my surgeons and medical team in Salt Lake City, six-hours away. I'm going to see five doctors during a two day visit, Oy Vey!
One of my appointments is a balance test that will last 4-hours. What? I can't imagine what will happen.
Can anyone share their experience with such a test?
My balance is still bad. I fall once or twice a week, usually around the stairs or when I try to get around in the dark. Darkness and stairs definitely require extra attention. During the day I'm bumping into everything, especially once my "head pressure" goes up. Dizziness and balance are my main problems in recovery. I think my bad double-vision exacerbated my dizziness for months, but now it's much better.
I'm getting my eyelid implant Monday and then I'm seeing my surgeons and medical team for the first time post-discharge on March 9, so I'm feeling like my once stagnant recovery is kicking into gear.
Emotionally I'm doing a lot better, mostly because of members of this forum: Reminding me of life's twists and turns, and that postponing the re-opening of my small bakery is okay. You remind me it's often a blessing in disguise to let go of things. When I flip-flop on reopening my bakery, my funny husband says, "If you turn things over without letting go, you'll be hanging upside-down." I'm not flip-flopping too much now because I'm accepting that I simply can't handle the workload, and it's okay.
Thank you in advance for your input on the 4-hour balance test.
