Our 33 y.o. complete T-5/6 son (2013 injury) has been at acute LTC hospital for 6 wks; told today that wound has plateaued and that "flap surgery" requisite. We'll obviously get a second opinion (might hyperbaric be an alternative approach???), but want to be prepared to support the 4+ weeks' post-op "supine-on-one's-back" Clinitron experience.
I have no idea how one maintains a positive demeanor during this type of experience. Anyone with personal experience out there who would share?
