My partner was admitted to the ICU on sat eve after an operation to repair his duodenum which had been perforated by an endoscopic procedure. He originally went into hosp for just a keyhole gall bladder removal and things have just spiralled. I left this evening as his temp was rising and they were querying infection. I was also told that he had ICU Psychosis (his behaviour has been very uncharacteristic) I was just wondering what experience other people had of either of these conditions and what treatments had been used successfully. I really need to hear some positive accounts right now as I'm finding it hard to stay positive. Also, I have two youngish children (10 and 12) and was wondering what experience people had of visiting with kids in the ICU and how to make it as stress free as possible. Thank you.
