3 1/2 months ago I had a double microdiscectomy on my lower back. Since this was an outpatient surgery I went home to recover. The next morning I was unable to feel anything below the waist, wet the bed, tried to stand up and fell. My husband and daughter picked me up off of the floor, moved me to the couch where I started having convulsions and became unresponsive. Paramedics came, in the hospital for two days and was having trouble with pain control and was dealing with a slow recovery with speech and responsiveness. Tests at hospital neg. for stroke etc. Transferred to nursing home for a week. Then home to continue recovery again. The trouble is that even though while in the hospital I could remember my surgery but have no memory of the surgery since coming home from the nursing home. Remembered the nursing home but two weeks or so after being home I had no memory of the hospital or the nursing home. This continues today. I have trouble reading books because I have trouble remembering characters whereas I used to read 3-5 books a week. I don't remember people who come to visit, places I have been etc. Another problem is the random twitching 24/7 began about a week after the surgery. It is not painful but disturbing. Sometimes it is a visible **** twitch movement, other times it cant be seen but I feel it. Both sides of the body, arms, legs, feet, hands, back, neck, head etc. 2 Neuro docs said I do not have alzhiemers. OK. But they said otherwise I doesn't effect my daily life as far as I can cook, bath, dress etc. Oh come on!!! Anyone else have this experience? Any ideas. Thanks to all.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
