No, but I was dizzy from 7-13 weeks approx. Surgeon told me it was the antibiotics given during surgery, but I'm doubtful since it didn't start until 7 weeks. But I've read quite a few patients complain of dizziness. Wish I knew what caused it.

It probably has something to do with the crystals in the inner ear. If that is the case, it can be remedied with physical therapy. This happened to one of the members on this forum over a year ago. She no longer posts, but I met with her personally and she told me what happened.

Kara, you need to ask a doctor, not necessarily your surgeon, about this.

At 8 months out, I'm guessing it is completely unrelated to your surgery but of course I am not a medical doctor so I can't possibly know that.

Good luck.

Well you need to get that diagnosed.

There are probably several things consistent with that.

Kara, since your surgery you've had pain every single day, severe headaches, anaemia, and you've fallen over a lot. You're constantly advised to see your GP so I assume that you have been to see them? If so, surely you have have mentioned these dizzy spells at some point, especially since they have been happening every single day too?

So, what does your GP say about them?
