So it is rapidly approaching the end of the year and my upadtes of this have been shockingly bad. I will try and get more organised.
So update time.
I have been approved for a posterior fossa decompression with duraplasty and a C1-C2 laminectomy. Now I'll let you know what that is lol. The posterior fossa is the part of the skull they are working on. They do the decompression by removing part of my skull. A Duraplasty is where they open the dura, which is the lining surrounding the brain, they put a patch of artificial material on to make a bigger space. A C1-C2 laminectomy is where they remove parts of the C1 and C2 vertebra.

I have been having seizures and for a while the surgery was put on hold. However I am going to an epilepsy clinic on the 12th January, so hope that will clear it up.

Going to try and get my MP onside to try and get my operation done quickly!

Merry christmas and happy new year!
