Cher - Were you in for a Video EEG?I myself haven't had surgery but they have found a scar on my brain left side and I have had the 5-day EEG, the information i got from the doctors office said that for 1-2 hours a day I could get "unplugged" and walk the hall ways with a nurse..... WRONG i had to stay in the room and the only walking around I got to do was to and from the bathroom and there needed to be someone with me at all times......... even in the bathroom. and lucky me no showering just washing hands and brushing teeth(I stunk so bad)..... pretty much all I did was read, watch t.v and sleep.
When I had my Video EEG my Mum stayed with me & we had a room to ourselves.
I didn't have a bed, instead I had a recliner chair which I sat on all day & the only time I was aloud away from the camera was to go to the toilet (I had an ensuite). I did sometimes get of the chair to walk around but I would make sure I was still in camera shot. My Mum had a chair next to me which folded out to a single bed.
I couldn't have a shower either but instead I had a sponge bath every day. When I wanted to have my sponge bath I just had to let the nurses know so they could get some clean water, clean washer, towel. I had my own showergel, soap etc. When I had the sponge bath the nurses would shut the door & put a screen over the monitor & my Mum would open the door again when I was finished to let the nurses know. I didn't like the sponge baths much but it was better then nothing lol.
