How was your routine after you got discharged and went home?



Recommended Posts

How was your routine when leaving the hospital and got back home was it hard trying to find out when to be doing certain things like the walking the drinking and Protein consumption? Thanks in advance.

The program I'm in had made my routine fairly easy, if not a bit monotonous. I'm supposed to drink 1 ounce of Fluid by sipping it over the course of 15 minutes, every 15 minutes. So I'm essentially always drinking fluids every waking hour. I text my doctor every night to update him on how many ounces I consumed and he's adjusted things every day by adding more Protein Shakes into the mix.

For the exercise I've done, I have gone outside and walked for 10 minutes, timing it half way between fluid consumption so that I get back in time to finish the ounce and then start the next one.

Establish a routine: when you eat, when you drink, when you exercise. I found it the best way to keep on top of everything. It doesn’t take much to get behind with Proteins, fluids or activity to begin with. And it helps to establish the long term changes you need to make to be successful.

I still keep to a routine & I’m 14months out. I find it makes things much easier for me.

Good luck.

My program wanted us on meal schedules so 8; 1 and 6 (keeping in mind a meal may be 2 oz of greek yogurt) and to always have water/fluid by us and to sip all day except for 30 mins after meals. They also had me on Vitamins from my first day home which I thought was odd but I had no issues. The first couple of weeks I was also doing small walks 5 or 6 times a day since I couldn't go far.

I did drive at day 3 to go pick my dogs up from the kennel. I wasn't on any pain meds and it was close so I had no issues.
