October 21st,2015 – Wednesday – Physical Theraphy Day 3 – 12 Days post op.
Another bad night. I had and I have the fever. It is 102 !!!!! My stitches and staplers are burning more then yesterday . I tried to leave the bed and walk with the crutches and all the sudden I felt a pain so strong that I SCREAMT pretty loud. The nurse came for my daily shot and she did it on my belly this time…OMG that was painful!!?
October 22nd,2015 – Thursday – Physical Theraphy Day 4 – 13 Days post op
I still have fever. During the night it was ” swinging ” between 101 and 102. The Doctor visited me. He checked my throat and my lungs. He asked me if I had certain symptoms. He said there is nothing wrong with me. The fever must be cause because I have the Autoimmune System Disease . He said that the fever isn’t caused by my surgery,since I’m 13 days post operation .
NOTE : The Physical Therapist said that my strength is back and that things are doing well. He thinks that, by the end of the month,after I remove the stitches and the 55 metal staples I should be able to walk with one crutch instead that two

October 24th, 2015 – Saturday – 15 Days Post Op.
I don’t have PT during the weekend. I had another horrible night . My fever got VERY high. My PJ is all wet cause I have been sweating so much. Yesterday I started to take the antibiotics . I think, today is DAY 5 with the fever.
NOTE : The Orthopaedic came home to check my staples and scar. Anything is fine. That is not the cause of my fever. He also gave me the pictures FROM MY ACTUAL SURGERY

October 26th, 2015 – Monday – Physical Theraphy Day 6 – 17 Days Post Op
This is DAY 6 with the fever. This morning was 100.4 . I didn’t want the nurse and the PT to finds that out because yesterday they tried to put liquids endovenas and I refused. I took a pill to make my fever go down before they check on me. Not sure how beneficiary this cheating could be but i have done it twice today. My Physical Therapist is very pleased with my progress

Today the surgeon removed H A L F of my metallic staples ! He will remove the other half next Thursday !
He grabbed my crutches and he said ” Now walk ” . I freak out a little to be honest! And so… I started to walk without crutches !!! Woooo… However, my Physical Therapist , wants me to walk with 1 Crutch for another week. He said it is very important for the posture and to avoid that I could limp

I left the hospital on October 14th … Which means, I have been indoor for 18 Days. Prior to that, I was in the hospital since October 5th…which means I really have been indoor for a total of 27 Days. My staples sometimes still pull, especially when I try to walk around the room. And they
didn’t make my night easy! Ah!

Last night it was a bad one. I woke up at 3 am because the remaining staples on my hip were pulling. They hurts.
