Week 5 - Hospital Release.


The moment had finally come - exactly 8 weeks early - I WAS RELEASED!! After 4 weeks of being in hospital I was free to continue my recovery at home. No one could wipe the smile of my face today!
Obviously I still couldn't get around very well so I had to live downstairs at home. Oli pitched up a day bed downstairs which was perfect! I had so much TV to catch up on, which was perfect as I wasn't going to be doing a lot else any time soon.

Happy as a pig in shit!
 I was pretty immobile which meant I was still very reliant on other people and not very self sufficient. It was also very important at this stage that I didn't push myself too hard as I was still recovering from massive surgery.

The following Sunday was Valentines Day! By the end of this week I was getting around a bit better and had been out a few times in a wheelchair and on crutches, so definitely wanted to go out for lunch. Oli booked us in for afternoon tea at the Mere Golf Club, which was amazing, even if I did have to sit there in a neck brace!

Over the next few weeks I gradually pulled myself off paracetamol and the nerve painkillers, pre-gablin. The nerve pain was still very noticeable, and I'm sure for a while it will be. The nerve root from L5-S1 joint was extremely damaged and repairs at around a mm a day. So I could have a numb foot and ankle for a while!

Yet again I would just like to massively thank all staff at Stepping Hill hospital. Your care was second to none and I will always be grateful for this. I'm definitely looking forward to coming back to visit when I am walking properly and back to my normal self!

Semi-electric emergency clinic beds contain some electric controls to raise and lower the head and feet just as a manual wrench to change the bed's tallness. hasta yatakları

  28. These are "visually impaired", nondiscriminating measures which influence the nature of the consideration given by the hospital. When compounded by work rules, status frameworks, work title structures and slanted complaint methods - the circumstance can go totally crazy.
