    Question I have severe insomnia following crainotomy.

    I had large tumor removed about 3 weeks ago. Now that I am off the pain medication, I have not slept a wink all night for 4 nights in a row. (I do not doze off then wake up. I can't fall asleep at all. I am not able to nap either.
    I am totally exhausted.
    I did not suffer from insomnia prior to the surgery. The surgeon says that my insomnia is not related to the surgery or medications because they are "out of my system " by now.
    I know he is wrong and it is a direct result of the surgery.
    Has anyone experienced insomnia after brain surgery?
    I am not going back to work yet but I can not go back to work if I am not sleeping at all. I am a teacher and it takes a lot of energy!
    Has anyone else had this experience? Much thanks
