Can't sit for more than 15-20 min.
Though I am not a medical practitioner or a psychiatrist, what I write is from experiences - personal and those of others close to me.
1. Do not worry about memory - it will all return in due course. Just give the trauma and the medications some time to wash out.
2. Do not tax the abdomen region by sitting straight for prolonged periods - since it gets pushed from beneath and by the weight from above. Try to lie on your back on the bed by arranging the pillows, in say 120 degrees with the abdomen-tummy protruding out and up. Do not dangle the legs much; instead raise them and out them flat and parallel on the bed.
3. The burning sensation will persist till the stitches heal out and the threads get dissolved internally. It will go down in due course and gradually disappear. Just make sure that the wound is kept dry for faster recovery.
4. BTW what were you doing just prior to opening the door ? Were you reading (studying) for your board exams ? If so, that could probably be the reason for the brain to "de-register" the alphabets as it might be associated with the trauma. Do not worry too much; the brain is a wonderful machine - it *will* sort things out itself. Plus when you re-start reading, the things will all come back in a flash. Right now your "panic" is the result of a feeling that things have slipped out of control, which is normal under the circumstances.
5. Currently, what the brain is probably doing is "prioritize". First and foremost it's job is to get out of trauma which you may or may not accept fully. Next, it has to heal you both internally and externally. Once that work is done, then mundane things like studies, languages, alphabets etc. etc. will be addressed. So stay put - and await that experience of "arre yeh toe pata tha mujhe" in days to come. (BTW a "great and good" news or experience is also a trauma !!! SO imagine what all the brain has to work out on. )
Wish you speedy recovery.
