DBS Journal 2: Surgery Date 2-15-2011

I’ve put in my dibs for a surgery date that falls during the February vacation week. Hopefully the kids will be too distracted by their first trip to the Big Apple to notice my new haircut!

To say I’m looking forward to this is an understatement. We hiked my meds ever so slightly last week, and I can already feel the dyskinesia and increased muscle tone on my right (stimulated) side. It’s especially uncomfortable in my right forearm and bicep. The second stimulator ought to help me drop the meds that are causing this and other problems.
