Actonel (Risedronate)

For many newly injured persons, entry into the rehabilitation hospital inspires an odd mixture of hope and uncertainty. After surviving the initial trauma and hospitalization, they may see the rehabilitation process as the next step to recovery and getting back to normal, a sign of no longer being in imminent danger. Most of the time, however, the real challenge has just begun. No longer is the injured person a passive recipient of care, a broken body waiting to be healed by doctors. Full recovery depends on the ability to shift from a passive to an active role, to do more for oneself, to make decisions and choices about care and management, and to take a hard look at how to live with the disability.
As a person with spinal cord injury, you are expected to start doing things for yourself from the first day in the rehabilitation program. You won’t be treated as a sick person. But in trying to be self-sufficient after so recently being so dependent on others, and having undergone a dramatic change in function since last being independent, you are immediately confronted with the impact and extent of your physical limitations.
The game plan is different in rehabilitation – instead of submitting passively to treatments that will “cure,” the injured person is expected to participate actively in tasks that teach how to manage daily activities with, or in spite of, the disability. This is when you come face to face with the altered reality of your life. In the acute hospital you may have wondered, “Will I survive?” Now the question becomes, “How will I live, and what can I do?”
