My mom had hip pinning surgery Dec 28 2013, spent two weeks in a great Rehab facility for PT and OT. We brought her back to our house thinking she'd need a couple of weeks to "get back on her feet" enough to go home with dome part time in home care. Just at the end of the two weeks her pain spiked and an xr showed a new crack in her leg parallel to the rod just below the hip pins. She's having to take strong narcotics to manage the pain so she can keep walking on it as the Dr said this is the best treatment. She's wiped out from the drugs and discourage from the setback. Do we keep her here longer or keep moving forward on arranging part time or fulltime in home care as she continues to recover. My life had been on hold for 5 weeks now. She doesn't like being dependent. We want to encourage independence. How do decide when is the right time for her to transfer back to her home (25 miles from us)?
