Last Monday I had neck surgery and stayed in the hospital overnight. I knew I would not be the best patient when I ripped off the leg pump pads so I could walk to the bathroom without waiting for the nurse. As soon as I disconnected my leg from the second pad, the alarm started beeping and my nurse came in with a mixture of annoyance and amazement that I would do this shortly after major surgery. He insisted I walk with a walker, and that he follow me!
My mother came two days later to visit me and has been taking good care of me. This collar keeps my neck in place but gets heavy after an hour of wearing it. I am ready for my body to heal so I can write my novels and lead an active life again after 7 years of pain.
Any tips on patience you wish to share with me?
