Feeling beaten up…

Day 3

After a long and good nights sleep, I woke up feeling like crap. The wound is aching no matter what kind of position I try to lie in.
eye-crazy-thumbThe dizzyness is worse today, and I also feel pretty nauseous. Took a couple of pills, hope they help. The tinnitus seems to be back to more normal levels and it is also more constant, which makes it easier to ignore.

Being cuddled with and cared for by girlfriend is also good medicine🙂

Any tips on coping or dealing with the dizzyness will be received with great interest.

Another day with lying still in bed and watching b-movies…

    Hei Ulf,

    Håper det går fremover med deg. Forstår at du ikke liker svimmelheten. Jeg vet hva du snakker om. Etter min første operasjon var jeg svimmel ganske lenge; flere uker hvor det ikke var aktuelt å kjøre bil f.eks. Plutselig en dag da jeg skulle stå opp var det mye bedre. Jeg kan ikke trøste deg med at det var noe jeg kunne gjøre for å bli kvitt svimmelheten. Måtte bare vente.
    Jeg har faktisk hatt problemer med svimmelhet igjen nå i ferien, men for meg er det nok på grunn av Meniere. Har hatt noen nye anfall igjen dessverre. Over 1/2 år siden sist. Har ikke kjørt bil de to første ukene her på hytta, men er på bedringens vei nå, og har begynt å kjøre litt igjen.svimmelhet i begynnelsen er ikke uvanlig.
    God bedring.
    Håper din svimmelhet blir kortvarig. Prøv å være tolmodig.

    Ulf, what helped prevent dizziness for me was just moving my head very slowly. Also, moving my whole body to the side rather than just turning my head from side to side. I had both ears done at once so my recovery was a little longer, but this really did help.

    I walked slowly, made sure not to dip my head down (which really made me dizzy!) and again, didn’t turn my head quickly for probably the first 3 weeks or so.

    I hope you feel better soon! 🙂
