I would not pretend to play doctor. Every injury is different, and requires a different recovery and care routine. Part of the answer to your question depends on which state you live in. Different states have different programs that are available to those who suffer such injuries. Also, how was your uncle injured? Different programs are available dependent on the method by which he obtained the injury. For instance, there are special programs for those who are victims of drunk drivers, or even just in a car wreck from state to state. Suggest you might also want to visit the Care Cure forum which has many who can offer you advice of the programs that are available in any particular state. However, be careful of ANYBODY who wants to act as your armchair doctor. I certainly understand the desire to get him away from the hospital. His chances of contracting other illnesses are high in a hospital, and the care is not always first rate, but I cannot judge the particular one you are at. Since it has been only a week, you are in a dicey area to not have a good doctor as his advocate, and giving good advice. Try to find somebody who is called a PMR doctor, and get them to at least visit, look at the information and advise. May God be with you and him.
