A welcome side effect

Sometimes following DBS surgery, PD symptoms abate for a period of time. This effect, called micro-lesioning, is something I don’t really understand. But I can tell you that I haven’t taken any Parkinson’s meds since noon, and I am currently tremor free on my left side — the side that we were hoping to fix. I don’t know how long it will last, or if it hints at future success when we do the initial programming. But it is certainly welcome!
