Hi, I’m new on here, I was diagnosed in A&E after a fall (I’m only 42) at the beginning of November. Cranium, spine, pelvis and femurs also lung and liver. I was in hospital on a lot of morphine for 3 weeks, then radiotherapy, then I was pretty much asleep for 6 weeks. I became very thin and week. In January I had pins put in both femurs. Two separate operations so I had a lot of anaesthetic. When I left hospital 3 weeks ago after a 2 week stay the reality hit and I had what can only be described as some sort of mental reaction to the ‘post op blues’ which made me completely loose it. Feeling suicidal, shaking, panic attacks. I am pretty much house bound but I’m almost able to walk with out crutches inside. Still can’t do much for myself. Poor husband is looking after me and our two small children. I can’t think of anything but how ill I feel and I’m so worried I’ll never be a proper mummy again. My body is improving all the time on the Ibrance combination, the doctors are positive, but my mind has fallen apart. Forgot to say I’ve been in a neck brace all this time as they are worried about a pathological fracture in my neck, hoping this will heal with Ibrance.
Can I get over this and be normal again? And does anyone know how long it will take me to recover from 3 months in bed?
