A quick question about an ablation
I am due to have an ablation on Thursday morning. I understand that I will be kept in overnight. My daughter has asked if she can come and see me in hospital after the procedure. From your experiences is this a good plan?
I don't see why not but as you have to lie still for 4 hours there would be little to gain unless you need help with food, phone etc. Lay out things you need on table by your bed. Take sports bottle filled with water, lip salve, paper hankies, cereal bar, banana etc, etc.
Thank you Jennydog. Good list.
Yes - mine did and it certainly helped passing the 4 hours lying flat and still!
Thank you Peter. All sorted.
I was in Barts and the nurse was really good. Plugged the iPhone charger into the socket and the phone brside me.
Why not if visiting hours work for her.(Some hospitals have strict controlled hours.) She will have to come and take you home the next day anyway as you will not be allowed to travel un- accompanied as I'm sure they will have explained. Be aware that you may be quite groggy so do warn her you may not be much company.
Certainly the heart ward (it was a dedicated bay of 4 beds) I was on there were few restrictions (apart from numbers) and it was allowed until 10pm.
Oh yes, so nice to have someone who cares about you there for support afterwards.
Yes, definitely. I was in a single room so it was good to have company. I only had sedation but if you have a general anaesthetic you may well be quite sleepy.
