Since Tuesday, the location, force, and duration of my headache has drastically changed. It still may be due to going on Demerol, but I would like to think that it’s getting better on its own.
The pain has left the area above my eyes, eyebrow, and between my eyes, and it slowly moving up to the top of my head. Since the first moments after waking up from surgery, the top of my head is very sore to the touch. It feels like when you have the flu, and your skin feels sick or icky. This has been with me for over two weeks. The pain is less severe, and I’m able to do more. Yeah! I did gardening for 35 minutes tonight, went to Lowes and got a few things with my wife, and installed a bathroom vanity fixture. That’s actually quite a bit. I did pace myself and go into the “dark” room after being outside. I did feel some fatigue, but the headaches never were overwhelming. They were doable. Tomorrow will show me if this thing is for real! I was congested today too, having forgotten to take a decongestant, but I hope to slowly wean off of them.
