Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

I have a bath every morning. I love it - I plan my day in the bath. ( and easier to get in to and sit down now I have had my back surgery. it was hell before...had to make sure my pain relief was coordinated to the precise moment) Yes..agreed...flip onto your tummy and rise from your knees, with a g...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Now you can get back into the shed, dear boy. I'm plodding on ok. I'm still not as comfortable as I would like to be, especially at night, but I am off all medication now and have decided to carry on in that manner. Another few days, and hopefully the discomfort will ease. When I think back to how b...

Re: GROWING OLD!

I had one male nurse and the rest were female. I didn't educate anyone! I tried to keep between the lines and under the radar in order to get out of there as quick as I could!

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Best of luck with the anaesthetic tomorrow too. It was the only bit I truly worried about. I said this to the anaesthetist ( lovely chap...held my hand...said all the right things...but still I shook under warm blankets). He said only one in a thousand anaesthetics go wrong. Or was that one in ten t...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Barbed Wire covers it pretty well! (Hence the Lanolin) I have given up all painkillers beyond Paracetamol and Iboprofen now. But I do reserve the right to review that during the wee small hours if my barbed wire really annoys! Better to get some sleep than lay awake wanting to remove my own barbed w...

Well I thought I would be OK, as I had just hopped out of a warm bath. Not so. I don't dare stretch. Horrible thoughts of un-name able things going 'ping' in unspeakable places. :laugh5: ( and you must never say the word TWIST to a spinal patient, Stanley. Surgeon threatens death if you dare twist! ...

...never say never... I seem to be doing ok today. I'm trying not to jinx it though... I can't wait until this sub cutaneous suture pops itself though as it is as tight as tight - not helped by they egg shaped dome of swelling putting pressure from underneath it.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

A bit of a sore start, Stanley. Eventually I managed to get that down to a more tolerable level. I note there is a lot of bruising present on the back now.
We have been for our walk and I managed the full course. It's a lovely sunny day, though a slightly brisk wind.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

You can probably relate to what I am going to say next, Panbiker. When the physio first visited me after the op, I was out of bed and walking about without my stick ( feeling ever so smug). She took me for a walk around hospital corridors, pointing out aspects of my incorrect gait. I had got into ba...

Well if you have lost your pyjama bottoms and have a pain in the bum...ones mind can only boggle at what you could have possibly done with them Stanley!
I have some pyjamas you can borrow. Freshly laundered. ( I expect them back the same way)

Well I won't be going out dancing tonight, but I am well and truly on the mend now. I feel good and have no pain beyond a mild ache...no need for painkillers. ( hopefully my bowels will come to life again now! I seem to have lost all contact with them since they started stuffing me full of painkille...

I've made us a Vegetable Bake for tea, to have with Fish.
Another thing lacking in a hospital diet...veg!
I also noticed, I wasn't once offered an option of fresh fruit.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I have perked up a bit and have decided I am happy to go home. They want to give me a couple of pain killers to keep me comfy on the drive home (yes please). It will be nice to be home. These hospital beds are not built for comfort. I think I will be better off in my own bed. And the food is much ni...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I'm hoping to go home later today (Monday) but the doctor felt it too early, given that I have a two hour car ride home. I think she is right...but hubby rather has his heart set on me going home. I think we are going to have to make a decision later in the morning. It's just coming up 2am and I'm n...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

The food in this hospital is pretty terrible. Tonight my meal was clearly marked Diabetic Diet instead of Ward Diet. I was a bit miffed about it because I find I can make my own suitable choices from a normal diet without having to resort to saccharin laden and artificially sweetened food. But I was...

What can I tell you about the op? An incision in the lower back about 4 inches long...then they cut through a muscle vertically to get to bone, then drill through the bone to get into the spinal cord. The affected nerve is pushed to the side and the herniated disc and its material is pulled out of t...
