hi,i am back on computer,did you miss me?

Saturday, July 05, 2014

hi everyone,sorry it took so lone was longer in hospital than expected but am now in rehab since yesturday,couldnīt post yesturday as somehow my computer wouldnīt work.had op on friday the 20th(at last)operation went well but as usually i had respirtory problems during and after op so had to stay in the recovery room for twoo whole days before being brought to normal ward.was at first in a two bed ward till monday the 30th where i had to go for another very small op to put in what they call here a smerz cathetater,basically it just putting a couple of cathertaters in to the knee so that painkillers can go direct to the source so to speak as my knee wasnīt bending as far as it should be and the painkillers were to help me when they forced the knee to bend on this machine.only trouble is they put too much pain killers in at first and i lost total control of my foot ect.i couldnīt move it so they had to take off the painkillers to see if the numbness was due to pain killers or a nerve being damaged in the op,luckily it was only because of the painkillers but that had me the most scared of all this as even after the knee replacement i could move my foot.painfully but i could move it.boy was i glad of the pain killers as despite them it was still painfull.i was put on this machine which basically moves your leg into a bend every minute or two six times a day an hour at a time.i am sure anyone without knee problems would have aching legs when doing the eqiverlent of walking up stairs 6 hours aday so you can imagine my pain,lol.anyway even though i only got to 85%bend and you should have at least 90% bend they sent me to rehab(guess they wanted rid of me lol)so i arrived in rehab yesturday.would have posted but for somereason computer wasnīt working yesturday.the worse thing about the smerz cathater was that i was bed ridden and had to use the bed pan etc.that i find demoroliseing.that and it was (still is)extreme painful but i m so glad i did it.

rehab was very exhursting yesturday as there are so many corridors etc.and after lying down all the time made it doubly tiring(got the smerz cathater and the stitches out of my knee out yesturday)we have to go down to the resturant for our meals(would you believe the resturant has a dress code,lol)it is like a hotel resturant and the food and service is very good.only trouble here is you have to pay for the water here in the hospital it was free.the rooms are for 1 which is very nice .it is very small but has a nice country charm.has sibgle bad with bedside table a normal table with two semi comfortable chairs,a small but adicate bathroom and plenty of storage place.has a nice little balcony with red begonias in a windowbox.a suberp view of the moutains.been given the theraphy workout plan and looks very intensive but at least the have put me down for swimming 3 times a week.would be better if more but beggers canīt be choosers as they say.
so how are you all my friends doing?i missed you all so much i can tell you.if i missed something important in you life let us know as it will be a while before i catch up as i had over 1.000 emails waiting for me.if you sent me goodies etc i thank you from the bottom of my heart i will try and get round to replying individually but canīt promise.thank you once again for taking the time to read this blog.take care and keep smiling,love karen

feedback from pre op check up

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

today had my pre op check up and as discussed with my dr did not mention my shoulder.my cpr levels are still high so there is an infection still somewhere but we donīt know .they agreed to operate but i had to sign an extra document saying i know there is a higher infection risk because of the cpr.the narkose dr said they are implanting this stunt thing in my vien in my wrist and leg that will take my blood pressure with every heart beat(they will be doing this after they have knocked me out)they will also be laying a zugang(iv access)in the vien in my neck and also will be laying an incubation tube in before they start the op as in the last couple of op i have had problems breathing so this is a safety percorsion.i have put my niece down as contact person as lotfi is out of the country.i will also be giving her one of my spark friends susie(thank you susie)email address so she will let susie know how the op etc went and then susie will post on my spark page probably in a blog or on my status how it went.i just have to remember tomorrow night to sign out of spark people so she can access my account.i wont be taking my laptop with me as lotfi wants me to rest in hospital but will be taking it to rehab so will probably be away from computer for 10-14 days depending how it all goes.i will be taking my mobile phone with me so lotfi can contact me etc.they have also decided to change the protese to a differant one than they were going to use before.it wont effect me any difinately than the original planed one put apperantly the one they are planning to put in will be more robust(i wonder if that means i an eventually run again,fingers crossed)my SIL things i am daft getting it done with the cpr being high but i have had 22 op in the last 5 years and of them 22 ops 5 were emergency ops where my cpr were alot higher than they are now.and i am still here.i am a firm believer that our lives are written before we are born and so are our deaths pre written and if it is written that i die on any given day i would regaurdles of weather i operate or not.it is this belief that gives me the strength to get through all my ops that i have and this belief that keeps me going on the rough days.the thought of eventuially being painfree is so freeing and i canīt wait to do things i am limited to do at the moment.to be more active for my kids to not have to hide the fact i am in pain so they donīt get scared.to be pain free is something i have been dreaming off for along time and to think it is actually in my grasp,lol.the dr have warned the op could still be cancelled if an emergancy came in etc.my answer was cancell someone else op instead mine has already been cancells 5 times this time it is going to happen as i donīt know if i have strength to build myself up for another op.having said that they want to do another op on my viens after this lol.so i am to take my last blood thinner 10 pm tonight and after the op i will be going on injections for a while till they decide which bloodthinners i am to go back on because of the other op.i can eat and drink what i want till midnight tomorrow and can drink water till 6 am on friday.they said my niece can ring to see how the op went 2 pm and should be able to have visitors after 4pm on op day if all goes well.so prayers etc that all goes well this time.this will probably be last blog for a while as i said as i will have no computer access after tomorrow night.thank once again for all your support through this as there have been times i have vented and been down but you all have lifted me up and carried me through.i honestly donīt know what i would have done without all your support.T H A N K Y O U

take care and keep smiling,love karen.

update.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

tomorow i have my pre op check up(again,lol)so fingers crossed everybody that it goes ok.if all is ok they will operate on friday.lotfi and the boys are in tunisia and i miss them been tidying the house a bit also finished off the embroidery table cloth i started when i was in hospital for my viens and posted it today to the person i was making it for in america.concidering i have a frozen shoulder at the moment i was pleased to be able to finish it just need to decide which craft project to do next for this next time in hospital and rehab.took some photos thought you might want to see what my embroidery is like

the whole table cloth



a close up of the corner



a close up of the main part



re my frozen shoulder my gp reckons i shouldnīt say anything tomorrow about it or they might decide to not to operate.as she says they will be giving me pain killers after the op anyway and they will also work for my shoulder.i am trying not to get to excited about the op actually happening and at the same time trying not to worry about all the possible complications.concidering all the complications i have had in past ops and the way the drīs are being cautious about operating as i am a very high risk with my blood disorder etc i wish lotfi was here as i need his strength.not sure if i am strong enough alone but i must be.have to keep saying to myself all the time that god wouldnīt give us anything he doesnīt think we canīt cope with.so as i said prayers and fingers crossed that all goes well.i donīt think i have the strength to cope with another postponement.

thanks for taking the time to read this blog and a double thanks if you reply.i will let you all know tomorrow night how the pre op control goes.take care and keep smiling,hugs karen

use your imagination what words to put in the title,lol

had my root canal done today along with a couple of fillings so now my chip tooth looks whole so i can smile without out worry even if it is still lopsided lol emoticon .they had to do two stitches as it wouldnīt stop bleeding,lol.after the medical insurance pay there part there is only 900€ left to pay. emoticon the stitches have to be taken out in 10 days.but the dentist said that one of the drīs in the hospital can do that.phoned hospital to say how it had gone and wait for it....yes you guess they cancelled the tuesday op.WTF***************#now they phoned me yesturday and said if i get the root canal done before tuesday they would operate 100% tuesday.i didnīt get it wrong because my dentist was told the same as i just phoned to make an appointment to get the stitches removed and he said they had said the same to him.well when i phoned today they put me through to the dr and he said they have a hospital policy that after any dentistry work they canīt operate for at least 2 weeks in case there is bacteria in the blood.i just broke down in tears then started having a go at the dr.because what they had said i had booked for lotfi and the kids to go to tunisia.it was booked for the day after the op as lotfi wanted to be here for me for the op.i just phoned to see if we could book another place for me but there is no more places.if we cancel we would loose all the 1,000€ we paid for it.also the only other operation appointment available is the 20th of june there is none after that for months.lotfi and the kids will be getting back late on the 23rd so after booking them going later so lotfi would be here for me for the op he wont be here for it,lol.i am still very teary about it all or that could maybe because of the effects of the root canal lol.anyway i am sure you can imagine what words i want to use for the title.well maybe not as i am not sure there are words to describe what is going through me at the moment.anyway thanks once again for putting up my ranting.one good thing though the person who gave me the wrong information at the hospital phoned me up to personally appologize for giving me the false information but that was the infomation she had been given.doesnīt change things but at least it shows charecter.so here īs to it being 6 times lucky,lol

thanks once again for taking the time to read and a double thank you if you take the time to reply.

    I'm truly sorry for the delay in your surgery especially since I had mine done 2 weeks ago. I can tell you this much though, any type of dentistry that has to be done even once your knee is replaced you will have to take antibiotics the day of the procedures. My dentist makes me take 4 penicillin capsules even before cleaning my teeth. Know there has to be a reason even though I can tell how frustrating this must be for you. Hang in there and if you need to blow off steam, feel free to give me a message. ~ Donna emoticon

continuation from yesturdays blog and stepping out of my comfort zone.

just as i was about to write the blog yesturday the hospital phoned and changed what they had said in the day,which was why just the word arge was written on it as i had just had about enough so i appologise for that. here is the full update lol

starting at the beginning.my bloods are still high so my urine and liver(with an ultrasound) were checked .they were both ok then they sent me to the vein out patience to check that a nerve wasnīt inflamed for the op.no nerve is inflamed but they oversaw something in the op so i need another operation on the vein,lol.but it can be done after the knee op.the drīs agreed to do the knee op despite the high bloods and it is/was planned for tuesday.that was what i was going to write in the blog though i am not looking forward to another vein op as it was more painful than i thought it would be. then the hospital rang and said i must got to the dentist first and get an x ray (i have a phobia from dentist from having a very incompetance dentist as a child)and havenīt been for over 20 years.if there is an infection there they wont operate.though i have no pain in my teeth i am not sure if that will not mean there is no infection,lol.anyway was ablt to make an appointment with dentist 11am today.so this is where i was stepping out of my comfort zone as i said i havenīt been for over 20 years.surprizingly enough it wasnīt as bad as i thought it would be.first the dentist is only a 6 minute walk away.i didnīt have to wait(which when i was last at the dentist we had at least 2 hours wait)it was a very posh moden practice smelling of money in the deco(that is just by the by)it was a very young looking dentist.(have you notice the older we get the younger the dr seem to get?)he said i needed a root canal done but it was only mildly inflamed so he didnīt think it should effect the op on the knee and could be done afterwards.so contacted the hospital who of course said no they wont do the op untill after the tooth is taken care of(ARGH) so just got off the phone with the dentist and he will do the op tomorrow(HELP)so phoned the hospital back.i am to let them know if all goes well tomorrow and if it does they will operate on me tuesday for definate and i am to be in hospital on the monday 5pm as they are operating first thing on the tuesday i will be the first in.so now i will be buzy .i have to book the ship for lotfi and the boys to go next wednesday the day after my op as we have school holiday starting this friday for two weeks and this will the only time that lotfi can go to see his dad as there is school plicht here and canīt take time out in school term and i will be in hospital and rehab the next two months.so have to book that,pack for them all to go(good job my bag is already packed for the hospital)i donīt know how much i will be able to do tomorrow with the op at the dentist.have to remember not to take my xarelto tonight or they canīt operate tomorrow.have to also try and get to my gp to get an einwiessen/referral for the hospital so they can take me in to operate tuesday.i find it really hard to believe that is really going to happen this time.needing all the prayers ,good vibes etc what you can give me that the op at the dentist goes good tomorrow with no complications and that the op tuesday doesnīt get cancelled and that also goes well.so here is hoping it will be 5th time lucky.thanks everyone for all your continued support.for taking the time to read and comment on my blogs sorry i havenīt been getting round to thanking you all personally.take care and keep smiling

    We'll get you through this some way or the other! :)

Root canals aren't that bad. Sounds worse than it really is, you'll be numb for the entire thing.

I am sending up prayers that all goes well and you get in to get that knee taken care of.

    I've never heard of such a thing - wanting you to get your teeth fixed first. Well, at least they're thorough. So glad it wasn't a bad experience for you. Know you'll be glad when this is behind you.

    I hope you can "enjoy" the time in the rehab and build up your strength for everyone's return. Hopefully they will feed you nice food that you haven't had to prepare and wash up after.
Sending a cwtch, xx

    I'm sorry this has been such an ordeal for you!

Hoping you get it done -- and have a very speedy recovery and then maybe it will all look "worth" the stress of the whole situation.
