my lovely hubby is having dbs on 8 December. He’s only having one side done because of his age (over 70) and his cognitive assessment which was excellent in all areas apart from speech and memory. So he can’t afford to lose any brain function which might occur with bilateral.
We were told he would be coming home the following day and obviously I am very apprehensive about the op, the risks and the outcome but I’m not sure what to expect in terms of how he might feel in those first few days after surgery.
Could anyone share their experiences please? Both those who’ve had the surgery and those who cared for them.
thank you x
