    Hello,

    I can understand that you're keen to hear from others who have had simlar surgery to yourself - it can feel very lonely when you're at home recouperating. You may feel your recovery is slower, or different to others who have had the same surgery - so it's always worth phoning your specialist nurse, or checking with your GP (who will know the extent of your surgery). Hopefully they can give some reassurance...

    I'll message you to find out a bit more about the tingling you're feeling, and where exactly that is...

    Warm wishes

    Sue
