the recovery....




my husband was brought back to his room at almost noon.....he was then more alert and conscious than before...i started given him liquid and he was taking it well....


he complained of shoulder tip pain more severe than the operation site pain...this was due to phrenic nerve irritation during the operation and due to some gas residue inside his abdominal cavity....i had to run down to the shop downstairs to get him some pain-relief patch for him to apply on his shoulder....


he was able to walk slowly to the toilet with my assistance and started to take soft diet....i became his private nurse to make sure all his needs were attended to as soon as possible....since we knew the staff nurses who work there very well, they were very happy that i did most of the things myself rather than to call them to do it, even though they offered to do them for me....i even took blood and insert the branula for my husband as he feared the houseman would do harm to him Nervous 2


my husband stayed in a 2-bedded room..the other bed was empty, so i got to sleep there at night...


we stayed at the ward until Tuesday evening (1 day after the operation)...he was feeling a bit better the next day and started to eat and drink quite a lot...(i have to run down the cafeteria twice to but him his favourite pau and cincau!!! )Blow Kiss


he is recovering now at home....started ambulating quite often and he told me last night that he'll be perfectly well by Sunday....
