Lastnight I took a bad, bad fall head first down the last 4 stairs and landed on the hard concrete. I admit, I am a huge klutz. My mom had to come over and clean me up, feed me, (prepare my food not actually put the fork to my mouth)and then bring me some pillows so I could sleep on the sofa propped up.
This morning I'm in so much pain and so stiff I can barely walk. I also have a huge headache because of this. Just what I needed, to fall n my face and hurt myself.
OK, I admit that I'm a klutz and I'll also admit that I've fallen pretty badly a few other times since my surgeries. What I would like to know is how many (if any) of you are out there that are like me. A klutz. What happens to you after you've fallen? Do you have to spend the day in bed like I do because you can't move? My mom wanted me to go to the ER (my surgeons orders after any fall) and of course I refused. I hate to wind up in the ER if I can avoid it. Would you go to the ER?
Please share your stories with me.
