  • Wow David! That is a lot of weight. Any brain surgery (never mind the complications) burns a huge amount of calories to heal. We used to supplement with a LOT of protein and high calories when patients had brain surgery or burns. (I worked in ICU for a number of years) Just keep pumping the good stuff in. Quite the thing - grateful to have narcotics for the pain, but not so happy with the side effects!

    • Still feeling light-headed and funky, I'm probably rushing things. One thing is that with the sudden weight loss, my blood pressure medications are all screwed up and my BP has been very low. Like 85/50 at times. So if I stand up quickly I get light-headed. I called the Doctor and we're playing with the meds to get it right.

      While I slept for the first few days coming home, now for the past two nights I have insomnia. Sucks.

      I did go to the gym today and talk to Trainer Cliff about getting back into some exercise. My last surgery was June 9th so I can start light movement, yoga, and very light resistance exercise on July 9. He will work up some programming for me, and I'll run it by the doctor for his blessing before starting. I can't start lifting heavy weights until Autumn.

      Things to look forward to, to ease a troubled, sleepless mind. :-)

      • Sorry about the insomnia. When that happens to me, I just get up and watch tv or read or journal or read MDA. Usually am able to get some sleep 6-9am and make it thru the day.

        • Wow! So inspirational. I know you are making light of what was obviously a hard long struggle. Glad to hear you are on the mend. I feel like I've been holding my breath for a long long time. Cheers from across the pond!
