Your Stories - Michelle Rockwell
Hello, my name is michelle. I went into the hospital on my third knee surgery. It was only a day surgery. My orthopedist left instructions to not give any narcotics patient does not tolerate. They kept me overnight because my oxygen was low. When my husband came in the morning I was unconcious. I was put on life suport and put into ICU. I have anoxic brain injury. I suffered from seizures the first year and confusion. I now have shortb term memory loss. I now just got SSDI. I am very sad and miss my old life. I used to take care of retarded adults and now my husband of 23 years takes care of me. My neroligist says I will not get better. How could this happen?
