I dont really know where to post this, so I guess this is as good a place as any
Basically I fell down some stairs and broke my right femur, then had a fat embolism, which caused ARDS (acute respitory distress syndrome), so they put me into a drug induced coma for 3 weeks and hooked me up to machines that helped me to breath, and put me on a trial drug for the ARDS. The doctors said I was extremely lucky to recover. Anyways, 10 weeks later I got out of hospital with a few lingering problems:
1. The "big toe" on my left foot doesn't work properly, which is confusing considering I broke my RIGHT leg... I can push it down with resonable force, but I can't pull it upwards at all
2. I keep feeling the urge to urinate, esspecially during the night (every 3-4 hours), even though sometimes when I go to the toilet hardly anything comes out...
3. Almost every day I wake up with a slight headache. It's not a proper headache, just a slight one that always progesses to a stronger headache.
4. My hair now has a weird 'strawlike' texture and is thinning / falling out when I shower, which is worrying since I'm only 22... kinda young to be balding!
Apart from the above relatively small issues, I'm perfectly fine.
So, any thoughts? Is this just stuff that will get better over time? All of the doctors and consultants seem to have different theories...
