Did you ever change them yourself? My in-care nursing is ready to discharge me to outbound care and mentioned my hubby may have to do it. I'm kind of squeamish, as is he, because in the hosptal I was told over and over again, "If you move your head you can become paralyzed." My nurses are trying to find a solution so we don't have to do it ourselves and my daughter Jumper can come home twice a week to hold my head still while it is done (which is way better), but I'm still iffy about our doing a nurse's job that can have serious consequences. I don't knkow how much longer I will have to wear it. We see doctor Dec. 2. I hope then. Nurses think it will b e four more weeks...ugh. On the plus side I am healing very fast and the nurses and both surprised and pleased. Needed to put a positive in there.
