I’m hoping somebody can help. My partner is now 8 weeks out of hospital after a 16 week stay. He was in an induced coma for 32 days. He was on a ventilator for 72 days. He suffered massive muscle wastage. He had to learn to do everything again. His recovery has been remarkable to watch and he is so positive and he’s working very hard every day with his own physio and rehabilitation.
Unfortunately he is suffering terribly with joint and muscle pain. He takes anti inflammatories from time to time but due to the massive cocktail of medication that he was prescribed on discharge he wants to try to cut back or stay off medications now. Has anyone else suffered from this condition. We’re really anxious to know is it normal as the muscles and nerves grow back? How long will it last. Any alternative therapies to help with the pain? We would really appreciate hearing from others and any help or advice you have or just hearing of other people’s experiences. Thank you.
