Have the nurses given you anything to help with the swelling around your eyes?
When I had my surgery my eyes swelled up aswell. The nurses gave me a patch with witch hazel on it which helped with the swelling around the eyes.
My left eye started to swell the day after the surgery & eventually I had trouble opening it. My left eye started to get better 3 days after the surgery but by that time my right eye started to swell up. By the time I was released from hospital 5 days after surgery the swelling had gone down on both eyes but they were both bruised but from memory I think the bruising around the eyes was only there for a few days.
slowly getting better yet still have headaches, i had a left temprol lobectomy. the swealing has gotten better yet i still have trouble sleeping threw the night , hopefully i can wash this soon kinda sick of the shower cap lol. the only think that bugs me alot is my hearing still seems to be sensitive
You are still at the early stage of your recovery so you still need to give your brain time to adjust.
I was sensitive to noise for the 1st 2 - 3 weeks after my surgery, everything echoed.
The headaches will ease of eventually. When I sleep I tend to toss & turn so found only sleeping on my right side after the surgery hard. Not long after my surgery I would turn onto my left side so in the end I got some pillows & put them straight down on the left side of my pillow which helped stop me from going on the left side. I think it was almost 3 months after my surgery before I could sleep on my left side without it bothering the scarring.
