Normal intracranial pressure is 15-19 mm/Hg. From the photo see that mine was a tad low. Who knows what caused the sudden drop in pressure, but it certainly caused one hellava long headache. A simple shunt adjustment and I should be good as I get. 🧠 #neurosurgery
Looking forward to insertion of this, an intracranial monitor into my brain this coming Monday. 😳
Especially looking forward to brain surgery under local anesthesic.😳
I’ll be in the ICU for up to three days. Do you think they’d frown on my doing yoga during that time? 🤔
Is how long this headache has lasted. It’s taken a day off here and there, but basically three months with the same headache. My eyebrows hurt, the top of my head hurts. None of my cures or remedies have helped.😡
I’ve never been part of a museum exhibit before!! Pretty cool.😎
Illinois State Museum -Springfield.
We Are Illinoisans
February 23, to June 7, 2019.
An exhibition highlighting immigrants to Illinois from the 18th century to today through photos, objects, and life stories.
In November of 2017 I participated in a survey conducted by the Hydrocephalus Association regarding my experiences as a middle-aged adult with hydrocephalus.
Fast forward eighteen months, the information I and others provided resulted in a new area of research for hydrocephalus: feelings of nausea and general malaise as an additional symptom experienced by those with hydrocephalus.
After almost two months of this headache, I think it’s starting to go away. I don’t trust this completely; it’s gone and come back before. However with the help of modern medicine perhaps I’m on the road..
I’ve now had the ongoing headache for 49 days. Not all day every day, but every day for part of the day. It’s not always at the intensity that I want to bore holes in my skull, but this is getting to be all too much.😑
