I'm finally discharged. I was sent home last night so I can continue my recovery. It took a long time because the doctors had to be sure that my digestive system was working, and that I could control my pain without the IV meds.
- Cryo-Pak: A pressurized cooler that delivers compression and ice to my surgical site.
- Continual Passive Motion device: Bends my knee back and forth all day to prevent stiffness
- Two kinds of Oxycontin
- Crutches: I'm non-weight bearing for at least 6 weeks.
- Ensure: Because I can't stomach full meals with real food :(
Two incisions on my shins. Left one is the major surgery, right one is the screw removal.
New IV site. I was stuck six times for IV placement during my stay because I have really small veins.
This is a nerve catheter on my hip. It's not for urination - It's for numbing the nerves in my leg so I don't feel pain.
Thanks for sticking with me, everybody!
I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Do you have any plans for this Memorial Day Weekend?
