Most of you know my brother has been in the hospital for 2 months now. He is doing much better and all of his numbers are looking good so he's due to be released on Sunday!!!
I have two quick questions about home recovery:
1) He just started eating small meals again about 3 days ago but he says he feels "funny" after he eats. He can't really describe it but he just doesn't feel right. Is that normal after not eating for a month (plus going through dialysis and a bunch of other things this past month)?
2) When asked what my brother's restrictions would be, his surgeon just said when he's ready he can drive, etc. That doesn't make sense after all he's been through! His 1st surgery was on 11/28 and the 2nd surgery (for the bag & open wound) was 12/5. When he was sent home the 1st time on 12/27, they told him not to lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk. Just curious what everyone else's experience was like.
Thank you all for your support during my brother's horrendous ordeal! I count my blessings for my online friends and all that you do for everyone else who posts on here.
