My dad had his op on Tue , it was a very very long and stressful day.
My dad went down at 8am and returned to HDU at 7pm. Apparently the op went well and straight forward and they advised the chemo had done its job.
My dad was sipping water straight away and was cracking jokes.
My dad remains on HDU as his bp keeps dropping when they sat him in the chair and are unable to send him to the "normal ward " untill that has stabilised. Hes on some sort of medication for this. However dad takes bp lowering meds anyhow and has had low bp for quite sometime.
My dad has had no sleep for 4 days 2 days prior to the op he could not sleep with worry and now its over the hard plastic tubes /drains that he lays on in bed are sticking / rubbing on in his back which is a shame as he is pain free but the tubes and wires are distressing to say the least. ...he keeps getting tangled up in them all. ...but they just keep telling him to press his pca ....and now hes so drowsy he cant even speak ha ha.
Im hoping he had a little sleep last night and im hoping some of those hard plastic tubes come out , however i know these are very essential. He has 2 drains in his back 1 in his stomach and wires everywere aswell as an annoying tube in his nose which he hates. Lol.
Im so relieved he is ok though and feel he is dying to make progress and wants to be up but his low bp said no. ❤
