I should have listened to Deeya and just waited for her healing powers to help my hips Instead I listened to the doctor, David Feingold, who made it sound like an easy operation with little risk.
But now, five days after the operation, there have been several setbacks.
First, it is almost a painful now to move that leg as 5 days ago. I have made little progress.
The leg is swollen 40% and hurts. I can feel the new metal hip within me.
My hospital room is quite noisy for 18 hours a day and is in an old section of the hospital. The heating system is having problems dealing with a 107 F temperature.
I am hot, sweaty, hedydrated, dizzy and constipated.
My pre-diabetes has turned into out of control diabetes with insulin.
Now they want to send me to a rehab facility for more physical therapy, but I only want to go home.
I have only had 3 visitors over the past 5 days.
Everyone implies with my poor ability to walk, it would be dangerous to go directly home
