Hi Nicky and a very warm
to the group. What a time you and your husband have had, and it must have been so frustrating and upsetting for you both.
It's funny isn't it how we think that the shunt will put everything back to normal the way it was, and although it does help quite a bit, things bnever go back to being quite the same. Which is why we try to help you to adapt to doing things differently, and build your confidence back up.
I don't think a non sufferer realises just how much this illness can take from you, not just physically but emotionally too. We go from being healthy and active to the complete opposite without warning.
I'm so pleased that your vision was saved and that you still have a positive attitude and that is such a good thing. I too have the bad and good days and I have a VP shunt and subtemporal decompressions and the medication LOL, but, and this is a big but, they are no where near as many bad days as there used to be, there are far more good days and I am thankful for my Neurosurgeon for giving them to me.
You are indeed a success story and an inspiration to many Nicky
