I have been home since Sunday afternoon after my alf/plf 360 fusion.
Boy, its been a trip. I guess I can say I have a wonderful NS who was right when he didnt want me to go home. I have found ways to go to the BR, but as far as sleeping, I dont do much of that. I dont have too much of help.. my 16yo has halped when he can, but the future ex hasnt been any help to me. I havent eaten since I got home, just drinking water and juice, The ol man I have to live with still doesnt think there isnt anything wrong, I have incicions front and back. Man, I have never known pain till now. I have eaten some prunes, since I have as of yet to have a bm. That is a source of pain, whew let me tell ya. So many things happening so fast, and I cant keep up. I have no bed to sleep in, the couches i have tried to build up so that ro makw some sort of makeshift bedm no luck. I have a nurse coming from home health to change my dressings,but thats a one time deal. Ins is in his name and that runs out for me 9/30/08 at 1159pm. I dont know who else to turn to. Surely my state wont let me sleep outside?
Any ideas? I had to call a distant cousin to put my ted hose on, extremely swollen with pain in my calf.
