Hubby is in hospital after hip replacement operation last Wednesday, this morning he awoke in a soaking and rank smelling bed, staff couldn't get a urine sample but I got one at lunchtime which has gone to the lab., apparently it will take a few days to come through with results, any advice, knowledge or folk lore on things I can do in the meantime to help, apart from getting as much fluid into him as possible, maybe cranberry juice, I'll get some in the morning.
He is also constipated, hasn't been for a week now, all adding to the dementia problems of course.
He did have his first post op. walk the length of the bed with the OT this afternoon, has been getting restless and standing on his own - another fall in the offing!
Anyway, any suggestions more than welcome, thank you.
With best wishes from Jo
