Where am I

I managed to slip over on 6-November-2015 and fracture the femoral head of my right hip. This blog is just to keep friends and relatives up-to-date with my recovery. It also will show where the NHS is good and where there is opportunity to improve. If you click the images tab (above) there are a few images of the break before and after the repair.

Update 10-June-2016 - sadly the femoral head has avascular necrosis and a total hip replacement will be carried out on 15-June-2016

I am home in Stoke Bruerne

Day 6 of recovery

Ready to go to physio quite early which meant up, washed and dressed.  My friend from last time in NGH, Brian, came and collected me about 10:00 and off we went to physio.  I apologised to Sue who did so much to help me in November.

After the physio session I had an Occuptional Therapy session which involved making a cup,of coffee and a cup,of tea.  I was then signed of as fir to come home subject to medical approval! Medical approval came about 13:00 so I packed up and was wheeled from down to the discharge suite. I sat there until 18:00 when I asked why I was still there and everyone else was going home.  It turned out I had been dropped off the  transport list!  Not impressed.

Anyway home in a wheelchair taxi accompanied by Nurse Aid Claire who was delightful.  Claire took my suit case upstairs for me (that's sometime I just can't do at the moment) and then I walked (shuffled) up to the Museum Green for a BBQ and a performance by the Mikron Threatre.

On the whole a good day but a bit of a restless night - I thought I'd sleep much better.
