Surgery Update

Rakat

209 views

Long time, no see! There is so much to share and discuss. I'm not prepared to give a large update, though.  I was just released from the hospital this evening. My body and mind are wore out. For now, some basic details...

I had surgery on May 2nd. Complications happened. Alot of blood filled my left lung. It had to be drained. So, a couple days after surgery, a chest tube was inserted. My lung had 2 water bottle amounts of blood in it. Afterward, I had a blood transfusion of 2 pints. I'm still trying to figure out what caused the problem. I haven't been given answers, yet.  I'll go into more detail after I get some rest.

Oh, no, I'm so sorry to hear you had complications! That sounds really scary, but I'm glad you're feeling better enough to update. Take it easy on yourself and get lots of rest - your body must be dealing with a lot right now. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
