Comment : PT in hospital
Posted by Justine on Tue 10:24am 22 November 2005


Hi Angie,
I broke my ankle too! I had surgery on Oct. 6th and spent the night in the hospital. I know what you mean about not getting any sleep with the nurses waking you up every 15 minutes for vitals. And I thought I was gonna get some good rest, NOT! Anyway....I was like you when those PT guys came the next day, only they walked right in my room. I didn't have a chance to do anything with myself. Then the one guy says he wants to get me up and all I can think about is flashing my butt to them and the whole hospital floor as I tried to crutch down the hall. Thank God I had thought to bring my robe with me, so I told them that I HAD to put my robe on or I wasn't going anywhere. I was being a little feisty since I wasn't too happy about having to get up and crutch that morning. So one of the guys helps me to put my robe on, got it all tangled up with my IV thingie, but finally got it on and did my crutch test down the hall. Oh well, guess they do it to everyone. Just makes me wonder what they tell people who go home and don't stay in the hospital overnight? I guess they are told to do it on their own at home. Anyway...welcome to MBL. Hope you heal fast. I have a plate and 8 screws in mine. Email me anytime or view my diary-
