AIBU to wish people would just do as I ask?

I feel IABU but I'm sure people can relate to this.
I broke my ankle on holiday, it needed an operation, we flew home, operation was done on Wednesday, I came home on Friday.
We are living with the PIL.
I asked to go upstairs straight away to our bedroom, because I can easily get to the toilet, and I am not able to put any weight on the foot for 6 weeks. I don't need to leave the house for 2 weeks until my first clinic appointment.
I didn't want to go downstairs because there are 2 steps up to the toilet and I'm rubbish on crutches.
I got home and they put me on a bed downstairs. I have struggled since Friday to get to the toilet. I've stopped drinking anywhere near as much as I need to, because it is exhausting! Why, when I gave my reasons for wanting to be upstairs was I ignored? I want to wash my hair, I haven't bothered because everyone has a fucking opinion on how I should do it. No! I want to bloody do it my way. I don't want to lean forwards over the kitchen sink, I have long hair, besides, I can't fucking stand!
I really feel I'm fitting in with other people's idea of what I need rather than actually being helped. My opinion on my own care seems invalid.
I waited until everyone had gone out and dragged myself upstairs in the end. I'm now happily going back and forth to the toilet whenever I want.
Most other things are great, my meals are being brought to me on a tray, my drinks are refreshed often. They've all done a lot for me really.
I just can't get over the way I was ignored over something so important to me.
I'm an ungrateful cow aren't I? sad

They're trying to help and doing their best.

Annoying though.
