Re: Head Injury

YOu need to check with your docotr as to what your restrictions are. He should have given you a list of dos and don'ts as to what you should be doing as you heal. If he didn't, I would make an appt. to see him.

Re: Head Injury

Look back through your discharge papers from the hospital. Sometimes there's a page shoved in there with do's and don't. But like ibake&pray said, do call your doctor to be sure of exactly what your restrictions are. With such a serious injury to recover from, you don't want to take any chances.

I wish you the best!

Re: Head Injury

As the last poster said you should call your doctor asap and find out what you can and cannot do at this point. I would write out the list of questions first. (I say that because right after I hang up I usually remember something important that I forgot to ask!) It's possible that he gave the hospital instructions to tell you and they screwed up (or they both did!)
