As I write before we were staying in Centre of Ilizarov almost 9 months.
First time was hard without husband and family. First month all time i was taking care of daughter and almost fall down to depression. But day of the day i knew more patients of our section and we even start to go out. Was autumn and is wonderful time in Russia. Trees like playing with colors: red, yellow, orange. When Raisa has not very much pain we walked in the park around clinic
First our long walk was to one very beautiful place. There are 3 lakes out of town. 10 minutes in taxi and you are in paradise
So i called what place
We loved come there in weekends, there are few restaurant and we loved eat meat which cook in fair, was very tasty
In one month i already has much friends and all of them had fixator. I even feeled me like friky, because I has not any fixator
And my daughter was feeling self good of see that she such is not alone
In the Centre are 2 shops where patients can buy some things for bathroom, sweets and food (if wish something different of food of clinic). 1 shop is right in the clinic and for go to second shop you have to go out, 3 min. If have fixators in legs it take 5-7 min
Out of clinic live 2 dogs and if you feed them you will always have company to walk
They are not homeless, but prefer to be close to clinic and eat like a elephants
These white one even was operated in veterinary clinic of Centre of Ilizarov, which located in park. To veterinary bring animals like bears, punters, tigers from all parts of Russia.
Centre of Ilizarov have 24 sections of different traumatology (traumas of head, back, fingers, arms, deformation of arms, legs, arms..) There is 1200 beds and each year pass about 7-8 thousands patients. First general recommendation of doctors is patient must to walk, this way regenerate of bone grow and making hard more quick. The clinic is really very big and patients can walk all day. In the evenings patients usual go out for take fresh air. Also there is Museum of history external fixation, some things of Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov, much pics of him with famous people and examples of fixators and even men-fixator (can see it in photo in down)
In the clinic 3 gyms where patients realize rehabilitation 2 times at the day. Each patient have own instructor of rehabilitation who working together with doctors. This moment is very important. Of what way patients rehabilitate knees without pain and more quick than if they would do it at home.
As i write before, Raisa didn't walk about 6 months, her knees didn't work and thank to professionalism of her instructor she start to walk in 2 months.
The first of that i was surprise is rooms. They are not looks like rooms of hospital. It is like small flat, have big bathroom and own kitchen. Is very comfortable. Furniture is like at home and clothes of bed is of different colors. Day of day this thing make you good mood
When i closed door to our room i feel like we were staying at home. I even buy flowers each 2 weeks for my girl
There are refrigerator, microwave, table with chairs in the kitchen, and furniture for clothes, bed, TV in the room. In what photo is our kitchen
Also clinic have small internet cafe and cafe where selling salads, pizzas, tea and juices.
Usual patients bring much CD with movies and at the end of treatment usual don't see none because have not time for this
About food. We with my daughter always was sharing her ration. Was impossible to eat all alone. One time in week nurses give menu to patients and they choose menu for next week. Is very comfortable, if you don't like some things always can ask something other. We always eat everything, there is cooking good, like at home. The food is balanced for help to bones to grow quicker.
Also in Centre of Ilizarov making massage for relax muscles. Patients usual love it
Centre of Ilizarov working about 50 years with fixation external and there created all conditions for comfort of patients.
