Hi it has been a year now since my debulking surgery and I was curious to hear others experience of internal infection and bleeding after surgery.
For me I had debulking surgery following 6 rounds of first line chemo. Lesions had been found on my bowel too but they were found to have disappeared at surgery. The surgery seemed to go well although my bowels shut down but I was told this was normal. A week later I was expecting to be allowed home the next day when I suddenly felt Very ill, within moments my body was expelling everything it could and I was drifting in and out of concienceness. I awoke on drips and being told I needed emergency surgery.
It was not a nice experience and I still do not feel I really understand what happened.
I wonder how common this is? Have others had this happen and do you still feel a little shoke up by the experience?
