 Re: First surgery and broken bone(s). NEED SUPPORT

Lyndsey, your system has been through a horrible shock and a lot of energy will be going into healing. You're in pain. You're likely to be on an emotional rollercoaster for a while. It WILL get better, in time. Meanwhile, cry when you need to - it lets the tension out. Post here - we understand.

When you Mom has time, ask her if she can take you somewhere with natral surroundings - even sitting on a bench in your local park for half an hour, watching the birds can be helpful.

Good that you can shower sometimes, but i know, it takes so long!

If you've not already done so, organise (with you Mom's help) to have everything you need for the day accessible from wherever you're sitting (e.g. on the sofa with your leg elevated). Keep the leg up as much as possible. Accept that you're going to need to rest a lot for the first 2-3 weeks at least.

Good luck!
