Freckles Posted September 23, 2013 Share Posted September 23, 2013 (edited) Hi, Freckles here. SAH 9/6/13 requiring crainiotomy and 2 & 1/2 weeks in hospital. Luckily I have no physical deficits, but I am experiencing middle back pain that is worse when in bed. I have recently started back at work for a few hours a day and seem to be coping with this. For the back pain, I have tried massage and Chiropractors along with hotpacks and baths with not much relief. I am not sure if this middle back pain (around my bra strap) is related to my SAH or from all the required resting that I have been doing. I have started doing yoga, and have finally been accepted at rehab. Rehab is more for improving my confidence in being able to exercise without doing harm to my brain. I am glad to have found this site as it has helped me understand what I am experiencing is "normal". I can ask my surgeon via email, but it usually takes him a week to answer my questions. I was also discharged from hospital without any post-op instructions- despite asking for advice the day of discharge. But- I am glad to be alive.
