After HAI

So questions abound. I try not to stress over too much, after all Christmas is around the corner and my wonderful husband had the greatest surgery to get him on track for a long life with his nagging wife :) He has been losing a lot of weight, his appetite after surgery hasn't been at 100% but 4 wee...

Lymph node involvement

So 2 weeks post op and the surgical report was given to me goodness knows i tried reading it and comprehending all of it. The surgeons were... are fine with everything. Out of 32 nodes they harvested only 2 came back with cancer and assured us they got everything out of the colon.

Thoughts?

Re: Surgery here, and done.

2 weeks post operation. After a 2 hour drive we spent 6 hours waiting around for the liver surgeon she was a full 2 hours behind. But DH saw it as all in all productive, 1. His incisions were checked, 2. Staples out, 3. Chemo filled in his pump. 2 hours home. He was relieved not to worry about the s...

Re: End of treatment and anxiety!

How do you guys survive this crazy anxiety each time before a scan ? Well, thats a good question. I've been on this ride with my DH for over a year and a half now and he just had surgery 6 days ago. Lots of scans, lots of differing opinions, lots of medical mumbo jumbo that almost makes you feel li...

Re: Surgery here, and done.

I have no idea I hadn't gotten to the hospital yet and you know men, not into details.

His pump incision is bleeding a little this morning. Going to get his oxy scrip after the kids head to church this morning.

Re: Surgery here, and done.

How’s he doing? Any chance of discharge today or does he have to hang in there another day or so? Has he been able to go to the bathroom yet? Prune juice - warm - is what finally got me out after that first surgery! He IS home now. He is really beat up, the nurses that tried to do the pump study pu...

Re: Surgery here, and done.

DH hates tv and his sleep was interrupted a lot so hes beyond ready to go. He was ruffed up pretty good by the nurses trying to access his pump, all bruised up like a.... an example escapes me, but pretty ugly. After the surgeon who placed it showed up they did what they needed to do the right way. ...

Re: Surgery here, and done.

Make sure he’s getting adequate pain killers and he should be great - up and moving around in no time!! He had an epidural catheter before surgery so that should keep him comfy for a bit Getting pain under control BEFORE it sets in IS 100% the way to go !!!!! With epidurals ( had a few :shock: ) th...
