Out of the hospital again
« on: October 12, 2020, 04:17:30 PM »
Well i got out of the hospital last tuesday the 6th after having surgery for an infection in my leg. My leg got an infection and i did not take it seriously and get help fast enough and it got so swollen and infected and had to have some of my calf ,ankle removed with surgery. While in the hospital the doctors made all kinds of changes to my meds. mainly finding out i had diabetes and kidney problems. The doctors put me on a certian med that almost did me in after being in the hospital for 27 days. On the 9th of this month i had to take an ambulance ride to the hospital again and had i waited another day i most likely would not be typing this now. So my word of caution is take your health seriously and if you dont feel right get help.
Sorry if i rambled quite a bit but take care of your self guy,s

Sure hope your health problems are behind you.

I spent just 4 days in the hospital for a knee replacement then recouping at home. Time does get long but hope you are on the mend. Those infections are nothing to be fooled with. I was in a 4 bed ward and when it was down to just to of us they all of a sudden moved me to a private room in isolation as the lady in the room was hot with some sort of infection. They tested me and it came up negative but I was worried as she had her knee done just before me and by the same doctor.
 I am getting around and doing a bit of stuff outside.

Get well soon. :)

I wish you well and understand your ordeal. I suffer with Diabetes 2 and know that A1c is extremely important. So, please watch your diet. Because of my diabetes, I no longer use sugar and have greatly reduced my intake of bread products. Bread metabolizes into sugar. So, be careful and in addition to my message I wish you a speedy recovery.

I know plenty of people with diabetes and they beat it everyday. I know you can too.

Good luck Derill. Take care of yourself and thank you again for the warning.

I think many people have shown us that with good medication and maybe some personal changes health can improve enormously and that the capacity of the human body for recovery is really wonderful.

I wish you much improved health.

Glad you are doing better! I am a diabetic, too. Been diagnosed for almost 20 years! I would advise "seeing" a good eye doctor . What works for me on my diet and yours will be entirely different. I find white bread, white rice and white potatoes are bad for my blood sugar. Some of the meds played hell with my stomach. Some doctors prescribe meds on the amount of kickbacks, not what is best for you. Side effects can be found online. Since both my parents were diabetic, getting the diet down pat was pretty easy for me. Good luck on the change of lifestyle!   :)
