I just had 2 brain surgeries. I’m back at work already but still have to carry around my emergency pack in case I go into pain attacks at work. I found that I’m unsteady on my feet when bending over, turning around, or moving my head up and down or side to side. Does anyone else have balance issues after brain surgeries? I had micro vascular decompression for Trigeminal neuralgia. How do you cope with your balance issues and have to work and pretend you’re normal?

      I had brain surgery 22 years ago and my balance, steadiness was forever changed. I have TN also. I’m disabled so I don’t know how to counsel you about work, but for the medical conditions I’m working through, like when I go to PT, I just make sure that I hang onto something. The wall, a table a chair, etc. I also try to move very slowly so I don’t fall over lol
