Topic: How to regain strength after long hospital stay
Hi. My dad is out of the hospital after being in and out of it 4 weeks of the last 6. He has a home health nurse coming daily to give him iv antibiotics to help finish fighting off the staph infection in his blood. The problem now is he is so very weak and tired. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to kick start his regaining strength process? He eats so little compared to what he used to and he has a hard time walking and just wants to sleep all the time. He was doing well with his chemo before all his infections put him in the hospital and we want to get him strong enough to begin chemo again. He drinks Boost shakes as supplements too. I would appreciate any suggestions- thanks.
