Hi I finally had my left jugular foreman decompression last week. Op went very well. I was away from my bed for 6.5 hours. In theatre for roughly 5 hrs+ My hair got shaved round the ear. (See below for cutting). If you had stents before, you will noticed the pain is not as bad. They just drill through my skull not going through dura as no csf was loss throughout this op. I was in hospital for a week as I had problems with new intense headache, zero balance and mega dizziness. I couldn't walk for 2 days and struggle standing upright without wobbling or losing my balance. In past two days manage to walk to loo by myself with crutches, but soon something distract me im wobbly again. There talk off doing the other side once i been stented. Outcome of op my pressure headaches have ease from left but now found next tight/narrow in my brain. Despite being mega ill I'm prepared for next one when ever that mayb. Only came home from hospital today. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
