Everything has gone better than I expected.
However, today I have been sleeping all of the time. Unable to be very awake. When they offered me a chance at a shower, I jumped at it. The nurse offered to stand there with me and I said no. By the end of the shower, I was having a problem standing. Both my blood pressure and pulse rate were low. Every thing was fine in a few minutes, but, it was a little scary.
The surgical team removed the drain from the wound. That hurt like hell!
It turned out that the drain tube was 16 inches long in my body and apparantly had wrapped around something. I do not plan to repeat that experience again!
I am pleased with the whole team at this hospital at this time. While I hope to avoid surgeries for a long time, I could certainly use them again.
