Long Term Hospital Stays
Was just wondering if others on here have experienced long-term hospital stays post transplant. My fiance has now been in the hospital for ~9 months, with the exception of ~2 weeks about a month after his transplant. GVHD of the gut is what has kept him in there along with having to deal with PTLD. As I'm sure you can imagine he is going a little stir crazy being cooped up his room and is also pretty down/pessimistic about ever getting out. I have also found it very tiring given I work usually 12 hour days and then go to the hospital each night to see him for a couple of hours.
I'm just wondering if there are others out there who have experienced long-term stays like this and have any advice or just general comments on what their time was like while in the hospital.
