We are now at day six post surgery. There remains no sweating in my hands for the most part. There's an extremely minimal amount at night, but it is barely noticeable. The foggy feeling in my head has also gone away, and I wonder whether that was attributable to the pain meds that I was given, but stopped taking after two days. Lung capacity is basically normal again, and emotionally I feel good. I have a small amount of upper back pain, most likely due to the surgery, but it is very manageable. Compensatory sweating is not bad, but present.
At this point, it appears that the operation was a success.
Congratulations on a successful operation. Most people get scared off from getting ETS due to all the horror stories they've heard. You did it the right way by researching it and choosing the right surgeon to perform the procedure. I am happy for you.
