One of the things that can be most difficult to grapple with when recovering from abdominal distress is the change in how the nervous system acts.
Whether you’ve had surgery or not, different kinds of trauma can affect the nervous system in various ways. From digestive changes to neuropathy to new and unexplained pains or discomforts, there is a large swath of recovery that can be challenging.
In post-surgical situations, changes to the nervous system can arise from the effects of anesthesia to the tissue trauma of surgery that can affect the recovery process even if the surgery was successful.
In this interview with Laera Morrow of Laera’s Lair we hear some thoughts from her about how she has managed her own neurological condition and how she is helping others cope with and recover from the effects of stress and trauma.
