Admitted for hydro/physio/occupational therapy

Postby pained mummy » Wed Sep 28, 2011 12:38 am

Hi there...im a newbie here but diagnosed in 2006 with Lupus SLE & 2007 with Fibromyalgia, firstly introducing myself on the introduction page....

I am being admitted in to Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge next Monday, for 2 weeks but allowed to go home on the Friday pm until midday Monday...the hospital is 190 mile round trip for me & im not going to be able to see my 3 & 4 year old D/S's or my wonderful D/H until Fri pm...so feeling a bit low at the moment!!

I see my rheumotologist Dr Shenkar about every 6-9 months & i have put off this hospital stay for the past 3 years as the time is not good for me....but i had no choice this time :( Leaving my boys is really tearing me apart, which inturn if im not careful will cause a flare up!!

Im being admitted for hydro/physio & occupational therapy....has anybody else ever been admitted for this? Maybe even at this particular hospital? Im really wanting to know what my stay entails & whether its completely differant to normal hospital wards etc....i have been in hospital that many times, im hoping & praying that things will be a little more relaxed there. xx

Sorry Shelley, I've not had experience of anything like you'll be going when you are admitted. It might be worth giving them a ring and see if you can speak to someone about it, they may have info about it that could answer any questions you have.

Agree with Fluppy not had any experience either but ringing them for some clarification may help put your mind at rest and if things work out well for you it will be worth the stay as you will go home a newly energised mummy for your boys :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: and :goodluck1: :goodluck1:

Thankyou so much for your replies & i will try to remember to space my paragraphs more :oops: or i will get my knuckles wrapped :lol: not a good start for a newbie!! :|

I did give Addenbrookes a call today to get a feel for what the ward is like...its a PSSU (Patient short stay unit)
Ward is open Monday to Friday 8pm...so D/H will pick me up on friday pm & then i go back on a Monday am...so not too bad.

Apparantly it is a relaxed ward & people tend to say that they would be glad to go back on there again!!!

Phone by the bed & i can use my mobile if i wanted...so at least i can call home when i want....when i told D/H he did this :roll: charming!!! :lol: xx

I could come over all "Good, I'm pleased to hear you have learned from your mistake" but that's not me at all, so I'll just be my usual divvy self instead :crazy: :crazy: 8) 8)

It sounds like a good place to be going to. Hopefully the treatments you'll be having will make a huge difference to you and you'll go home so reinvigorated that your 2 boys will be running after you instead :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: Well, maybe not quite that, but feeling much better and brighter :clap: :clap: :clap:
