Congratulations and welcome to the club! As Azatadine said, the first few days are the worse. After that, each day brings you one step closer to full recovery. It seems like forever when you‘re going through it but looking back, I’m amazed how quickly I returned to my normal activities.I made it to the other side! Woo hoo.! I’m in a ton of pain, I miss my daughter, but I’m getting there.
you mean mine on my blog?Can you link some of the INR posts please?
The Mayo clinic did a study years back where they introduced patients to self testing and I think some to self management. All except one patient was doing well after 3 months (and apparently that patient who was doing well stopped because their GP told them to stop )But you are already ready to learn about self-managing INR
Thank you! It’s been hard with my 5 year old daughter not able to come visit. And the anesthesia problem I had Monday has prolonged my stay. Crossing everything for a release Tomorrow. If not hopefully Tuesdays. My daughter has been so sad which makes MeSad!I was so out of it, lonely and depressed immediately post-op, (1 year and 9 months ago) that just seeing familiar movies on TV in the hospital was so reassuring (it was Dances with Wolves & Mrs Doubtfire, haha) and miraculously pulled me out of my worry and fear. And I’ve never been a big TV person at all - but I was so grateful for the distraction, the reminder that life goes on, you know?
But you are already ready to learn about self-managing INR!? What a determined, resilient trooper! Good for you, and best of luck for your recovery.
