I was never told about AD or how to spot the signs i did this on my own and only recently found out about medication to ease AD this was never discussed with me at all,I was not shown properly how to do bowel routines I learnt when at home on my own I was only aware of what needed to be done never shown in rehab never had a lesson in that or even told about different types of medication or enima to help with bowel routines.
I was told four years after being out of rehab that I should have had an operation on my L1 fracture to make it secure and now to do the procedure would be too big of a job as it has healed and would need re breaking but it is causing problems now as it has healed on an angle and is pressing on other nerves that it would never have been touching if they had operated at the time of my accident I was not even given a brace that kept that part of my back from moving infact the brace that was measure by a physio for me was a full body brace but as the physio measured it wrong it did not fit so the same physio got a smaller brace from the ones they had in there office that was not a full body brace it only braced the top part of my body and back and no one ever checked it was the right one apart from the said physio?
I have only really started thinking about what happened in rehab due to things going wrong now and from reading about and been told about that should have been done that weren't done at the time I was there and if things where not going wrong with things now I would be none the wiser that these things where not done right at the time as I and every one else puts complete trust in thinking SCI hospitals know what they are doing
Has any body had similar happen?
