Mum had her surgery last Thursday and was discharged yesterday following a slow recovery as she was intolerant to all painkillers except paracetamol. In the hospital the nurses were turning her every few hours to avoid bedsores. I found out that last night she had her partner turn her every few hours to avoid bed sores, is this necessary even though she is up during the day now? I mean just up in a chair and taking short walks around the house, she's not ready for anything more than that right now. Any other advice as to what she can be doing now, without over doing things?
