"Could it be the crap they give you to knock you out stays in your system that long?"
I've heard it takes months and months to get the knock out juice out of your system but the things I feel getting better are things I was experiencing before the operation...some of them from quite far back. Things I didn't even really realize I was experiencing until recently when they have diminished or gone away.
Things like the not being able to concentrate...I thought I was just getting burned out on trading and studying the charts. Now, I'm actually looking forward to checking things out when the open up.
The weird head tension/ache around the perimeter of my brain.
Like falling asleep for no apparent reason. etc.
The lack of energy. Last year(maybe 1.5 years ago now) I was walking 2 miles in the am and pm...then it went to 2 in the am and 1 in the pm...then 2 in the am...then 1 in the am...then nothing. Now, I am up to 1 in the am and could probably do two but don't want to push it and 1/2 in the pm.
I'd still rather kick myself in the cojones than do the boring walk but that's been a lifetime problem. HA!
