All right Ladies,
What is the funniest thing you've done having post op brain fog? I will tell my tale:

My DH took me to go eat with my family at 2-3 wks postop. I ordered a fried chicken fillet, and was having such a terrible time cutting it into bites. When I complained about it, my DH said "Well sweetie, you might try using a fork. That spoon probably won't cut your chicken!" I actually said I was not using a spoon, it was a fork. I held it up, it was indeed a spoon. My whole family laughed at me! Ever since, if I say/do something werid and he gives me that look, I say "Hey, what do I know? I'm the girl who tried to cut her chicken with a spoon".

Okay, its your turn!

I have had 3 episodes THIS WEEK! One night I cooked squash, using a double boiler to steam it. Several minutes after turning on the gas cooktop I kept hearing this popping noise. I had not put ANY water in the pan and just about ruined my favorite pot.

Then, we were going to a neighborhood party last night. I've had it on my calender for 2 weeks. I'd gone out and bought a new skirt to wear a few days ago, did my nails, my self-tanning the night before, and just finished baking cookies to take late yesterday afternoon. I checked the email one more time to verify the party was at 7:00. That's when I realized it's NEXT FRIDAY. If I hadn't checked we would have been on their doorstep a week early.

The 3rd one was when I was going shopping for the new skirt for the party and involves a driving error that could have been really bad. I was stopped at a red light on a busy major road. When the light turned green for those turning left, I took off straight ahead, wondering why the cars in the other 2 lanes weren't coming with me. I was horrifed! It really scared me so much I haven't told anyone. I'm wondering when this will go away, as I'm coming up on 6 weeks now! Surely it's not permanent?

I put a whole gallon of milk up in the cabinet with the dishes. A short while later, I wanted some more milk and couldn't find it for the life of me!

Well I found it later while I was putting up dishes!

My poor dogs are hungry, I come home and they get all excited for supper, I say ok I'll feed you guys, go in the living room for something and then I'm on the couch watching TV, next thing you know I got three dogs given me their hunger faces following me around until I go back in the kitchen and realize I forgot to feed them,

Oh Yeah, I almost forgot, DEODORANT!! I seem to forget about putting that stuff on every morning,

I think I'm gonna have to start sticking post it notes everywhere or have a daily checklist of what I should be doing everyday LOLs

oh lord I can relate to this thread. I've had brain fog for a while now.

a few nights ago it was hot here in cali and even though I had already showered earlier in the day it was just so hot and sticky I really wanted another one. My hair had that gummy sweaty feeling that is just so gross. so I told my hubby, "I'm gonna go take a nice cool shower and wash my mop"

well I was standing in the shower daydreaming and just enjoying the whole over all experience. it was so nice I didn't want to get out. finally I hurried and showered and got out. it was while I was combing out my hair that I realized I forgot to wash my hair and that's the main reason I took another shower to begin with! I have hair to my butt so it's pretty hard to forget having it especially when it's wet but I guess brain fog will do that to you!

I have also forgotten to buy dishwashing soap every day this week even though I've been to the store several times. grief I wish I had my brain back!

Is there such a thing as pre-surgery brain fog???

I set my alarm, got up on time, started to get ready for work: ironed a shirt, started to put on my make-up... and then realized it was Saturday.

oh my

how i can relate. last week i went to feed my dog but instead of putting her food in her bowl i started to put it in the trash can. she just looked at like i was on something.

tonight i made some coffee which i love, went to put creamer in it and graped the coffee instead of the creamer and had to stain my cup into another cup. but i did have a lap with d&c today so that could explain that one.

and i am always forgetting how to spell words like the , and , if boy do i feel dumb. hugs to all debbie

I have a story that just had my sister and I in stitches.
My sister and I were talking about snacks one day. Chips vs. crackers and whatnot (hey, it's the best conversation I could muster at the time). Anyway, she mentioned that my dad had hid some Cheetos behind this basket on top of the fridge. For the life of me, I could not figure out what a Cheeto was, and it's my favorite munchie!

Hi everybody, I have read in several posts that some gals have noticed a change in their eyesight since their surgeries.

Well, I slept most of the first 3 weeks anyway. But I did seem to notice that things didn't look as clear as I thought they should. Since I had read that other people noticed a change in their vision I wasn't too worried.

Then, 5 wooks post-op my DH and I went for a weekend camping trip. Just an hour away, took the dog and the pop-up camper, not really roughing it but lots of nice leisurely walks and fresh air. But boy did I notice that I had begun to bend my glasses since I kept them on when I had been napping on the couch at home, and wow, my left eye seemed to be getting worse by the day.

So. . . we get home, and I realize that I reached in the drawer and had pulled out my OLD pair of glasses that I haven't worn in 6 months and had been wearing them for the past 3 weeks and DH hadn't even noticed the difference either!!

Is brain fog contagious!

Blessings to you all as you heal!

Shhhhhh....don't tell my DH, but Mimi, I did the same thing as you. I had people honking at me like crazy! It scared me to death! I felt so dumb I did not say anything to anyone.

A few days later I got out a 1/2 gallon of ice cream - you know - I was having a MAJOR craving for some. I had been looking forward to a major chocolate-ice-cream-fest all day.
Well, the ice cream was rock hard, so I decided to let it sit out a few minutes to thaw. In the mean time, I went and threw in a load of laundry. Then, brain fog set in and I got sidetracked I guess, because later on my DS yells from the kitchen, "Mommy! There is melted ice cream aaaaaallllllll over the counter and the floor!" I could not believe that I had totally forgotten about the whole thing! This is especially odd for me. The most hard core ice cream addict in the universe! Before moving to Texas, I lived in New Hampshire for awhile and I was thrilled to know that Ben and Jerry's was the next state over! LOL Oh well, maybe it should be called mentalpause!
