Being able to sit up where they put the chest brace on because I just had my back butchered open with some 66 staples, and my left hip shaved. That they wore this brace, and just trying to sit up in the bed, I felt like vomiting every time they did it, so they had to lower it. Even just getting to the point where I had to transfer from my bed to the wheelchair-I couldn’t do it because I was afraid I’m going to fall, because I  didn’t have the use of my legs; everything was lost. And even just to think about putting on my pants and socks, it was personally just impossible because I couldn’t move. So, I really just hated the beginning steps of all the rehab, OT and PT.
