an explaination of my brief absence.

Postby velvet » Tue Aug 18, 2009 11:44 pm

not sure if anyone noticed i have not been around since last week. i was (am and will be) paying the price for deciding to de clutter my house. coming down the stairs last wednesday i slipped on the second from bottom, then stood on the stuff all the accident people tell you not to leave on the bottom stair cause its dangerous - and broke my leg.

ok partially dislocated my ankle and broke my leg in 3 places :oops:

i have been in hospital since waiting for the swelling to go down so they could pin it which they did yesterday and i got released today. i am not allowed to weight bear for 6 weeks (oh the joy of crutches with fibro) and will be only partially weight bearing after that - i could be unable to drive for 16 weeks :shock:

the only really scarey bit to this is that it has not changed my pain levels at all - the break itself was a bad fibro pain day and this morning the pain from the surgery which has since eased was a very bad fibro pain day. i have done this whole thing on gas and air (and face it you dont need to be in pain to suck that if offered lol) and nothing stronger than co-codamol with most of the time paracetomal - in other words my usual medication regime. (i have left a trail of nurses doctors and other patients looking at me in amazement - apparently most people are crippled by pain when they do this :roll: )

anyway my apologies for my absence i should now return to normal attendance - or even more than normal attendance as i am stuck on crutches or using a wheelchair.

Aw hunnie that's awful. Sending you a big hug and hoping those 16 weeks pass quickly. Hopefully you will at least be OK then for the Xmas and New Year.

Rest up and save your strength. I got wa wheelchair for my FM. Would that sort of thing be of any use to you now, instead of crutches? Might be worth ringing your GO and asking for a referral to the Wheelchair Assessment Service in your local OT dept?
Sending you love and light

cheers sarah - i am more embarrased than anything - what a stupid thing to do. my other half has actually picked up a wheelchair from a local charity shop so i am sorted as far as transport goes - i was actually issueing instructions on my first day in hospital when i realised how bad it was - i thought i would go in get plastered and come home but oh no i had to be sillier than that.

hopefully my sense of humor will bring me through - although i did cry for 20 minutes the first day when they told me they werent operating till the swelling went down and i realised i was going to be stuck there for a while.

What an awful week for you, at least with your leg pinned no-ones going to stare at you in the wheelchair. Strange about not feeling the pain but we put up with so much pain all the time a bit more probably doesn't matter.
As I tell my OH de-cluttering is bad for your health. :lol:
:hugs: take care (bit late for that)

Big hugs velvet,and the moral of this story is, "just dont de-clutter or tidy" (I wish) you poor thing, just as Mr A says its interesting that such a major break didnt increase you pain level, and yet some of us have been told we dont have a high tolerance level for pain :roll:

Thank goodness for computers eh, at least that will give you something to while away your recovery time.

Take care, Anne

i find the pain thing fascinating - i mean i now have a benchmark for how much pain i am in - the benchmark being a badly broken bone - but who is going to believe me? i am pretty sure that if it wasnt for the really obvious visable signs of the break that to start with medical staff would have thought i was exaggerating about it being a break.

it is really weird for me to have to think ok this pain i have is the equivilant of a "normal" persons broken leg pain because i dont really let the pain stop me it is the exhaustion and muddle that bothers me.

we do have a high pain threshold
i had a lot of back pain and for two years my physio kept saying that no op will do you any good an that i just had to carry on an do the exercises :shock: i knew i could not do them :(
in the end they did send me for a scan but only because my mom had been diagnosed with a brain tumour that could travel down the spine
my mom was very worried that mite have been my problem so i told the physio and hay presto sent for a scan
anyway it terned out i had a disc out
got me in for op within the month
my physio said to me on the phone wen the results of the scan came back "you have a very high pain threshold that is why it was not picked up"i was gob smacked!!!!
it has left me with nerve damage so do still get the pain
but its not all the time as it was before
but ended up with fibro so pain pain pain pain pain pain...........................
but as you say its not so much the pain it is wen my head is all fuzzy and so tired that is wen find it hard the pain not nice but can cope if head is clear

hope you ok today just shout your orders out to the kids lolz

big :hugs:
