So Far, I am Disappointed with My Progress After Surgery

I guess I have to be patient.

I don’t want to sound like a Debby Downer, but I am not happy with my Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery results. Recently, my right hand has shown signs of reverting to its old annoying rhythm. I was doing pretty good at writing with a pen, but now it is more challenging. Using my iPad and pointing to the keyboard has gotten less steady too. I didn’t expect the tremor to dissipate anymore until I went back for another adjustment on October 10th, but I didn’t expect it to worsen.
