Just 4 days until my DBS implant is turned on and calibrated for the first time! I can hardly wait, especially since my symptoms have returned, and I'm having trouble at work. Sunday I have to stop taking Requip, Monday it's "goodbye" to seligeline and amantadine, Tuesday I have to quit the rest of the drugs (Stalevo and Sinemet) and then Wednesday I go in to be powered up and fine tuned.
I hope I can start cutting down on the meds soon, too. I'm taking medication every 2 hours now; 17 pills a day! And that's not counting the pain killers, muscle relaxants and sleeping pills for the insomnia that's probably a side effect of the OTHER drugs.
Soon I'll be free! Well, "free er" anyway. Sorry; my "dash" key doesn't work ever since I spilled a margarita on the keyboard. Go figure.
