Foot is now nicknamed Frankenfoot because of how ghastly it looks but guys, the skin graft is pretty much healed! Been doing physio and they're saying another maybe 3 weeks til I can start baring weight on both legs chase I broke my pelvis too. Possibly going to rehabilitation but don't know when and where but should be as soon as the ot has sorted it.

Moving from the burns unit today back to my original ward with an actual window. Quite excited.

Glad things are moving in the right direction for you. Also pleased that Frankenfoot has its own nickname and the skin graft is healing well! Hopefully you are in less pain or it is more manageable now?

Windows can really make a huge difference. Is the view nice?



Please do not give me virtual hugs unless you are only using the hug function on threads. Thanks.

I am glad you are getting a window and that your foot is healing well.
Three weeks probably sounds like a long time right now, but time is gonna pass quicker than you think and it sounds like you are making good progress with physical recovery at least.

Are you also getting support for the MH side of things?

Moving has been put on hold as there's no one that specialises with my foot incase the worst happens. Gutted. Wanted a window and air.

Camden, my foot never really gave me that much pain it was my pelvis that's excruciating and still is.

Saw a psych nurse, was promised psychiatric and psychological but haven't seen them yet.

Glad things with your foot are looking hopeful :)

Sorry to hear you're not moving just yet though, I hope it can happen soon.

Thinking of you.

I'm so glad things went alright with the surgery. I've been following along and haven't been really sure of what to say, but I just wanted to offer some support and encouragement. I hope you are able to move to a room with a window soon, I can totally understand why that would feel better for sure!

On the new ward. Unfortunately, it's one of the busiest so when I need the loo, crying happens because I'm waiting ages.
Crying and paranoia is happening a lot too, I think it's getting a bit too much. I'm never comfortable because of my pelvis. Really, everything hurts. I'm on morphine but want something to knock me out so I can deal. Really scared most the time. Just want my mum.

Thanks so much, guys.

Lio's recommendation of the Bluetooth headband, my god, love it. I can finally listen to music and talk without any hassle.

I'm doing okay, I'm being hoisted pretty much everyday to sit on a chair to help me get used to sitting down for periods. First time was 10 mins, then 30 now 50 so improvement. The next goal for physio is to hoist me on a commode so I can go there instead of lying down on a bedpan.

They're getting funding for me to go to rehab near where my parents live, don't know when I'm going but will definitely be, then my mum is going to take care of me while they look for a ground floor flat for me. I've had to give up my current flat unfortunately, not yet but soon. My care co is doing all she can to help.

Only problem I'm having is getting told off for buzzing at night, when it's to change position or go to the toliet. Makes me feel so fucking bad that I start crying which aggregates them more. An example is I held in crying I let out a yawn, my curtain gets angrily opened and I'm.told to stop it. Legit yawned.

I'm glad you liked everything! It sounds like a good plan for moving forward, and seriously well done on the 50 minutes of sitting, that's a massive accomplishment given you were only doing 10 minutes before and in so much pain. Are you close enough with your mum and okay with her helping with your care?

Sorry some staff are being so out of order though :( is it possible to raise it with someone you trust?
