quintruple bypass surgery
- My husband recently had a quintruple bypass.there were many complications in theatre.my husbanx ended up in surgery for over 10hrs as the team could not get him off the bypass pump. He spent ovet a week sedated and ventilated in cardiac ICU.after coming round a few days later he still seems very confused and depressed, but most of all hes having co-ordination problems with things like moving arms and legs.it just seems that hes having trouble thinking properly too.is it normal to be foggy and confused after this kind of op.

- I had inguinal surgery about a month ago and I still have throbbing pain on the inguinal area a lot and My testicle related to that side also is very tender to touch , I went back to work this week and I have a hard time even walking around after half a day. Is this Normal? I had Labroscopic repair with mesh.

70 year old
- i am 70 year old and had a pelvic prolapse. I chose a vaginal hysterectomy. My surgery went well. Here are some things that helped in my recovery. God has been my greatest healer. My daughter was there to help. I did everything my surgeon told me to do. I am 3months out and doing quite well. I do have days that i have felt some exhaustion. I have had to learn to work in the morning and do things sitting down in the afternoon. That has eleviated the exhausted feelings. I do eat fresh veggies and fruit with a main dish each meal. I eat very little desserts. I walk everyday. I drink at least 2 quart of water a day. My doctors nurse was very good at getting back to me about questions i had for them. I am now taking flaxseed oil, acidopholis, vitamin, proarginine. I had a very good surgeon. He was responsive and had an attitude of caring and he took the time to answer all my questions and concerns.

STRANGE POST-SURGERY ISSUE
- OK SO WHEN I WAS 9 YEARS OLD, I HAD SPINAL SURGERY AND STAYED IN THE HOSPITAL FOR OVER A MONTH. I AM NOW 25 YEARS OLD (WILL BE 26 NEXT MONTH) AND TO THIS DAY, WHEN I THINK OF OR SEE SOMETHING SHARP, I IMAGINE IT CUTTING MY SURGERY SCAR. I CAN LITERALLY FEEL IT AND I HAVE TO GET INTO MY HEAD AND TELL MYSELF TO THNK OF SOMETHING ELSE. I HAVE DONE RESEARCH, TALKED TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS, EVEN DOCTORS, AND NOBODY COULD TELL ME WHY I HAVE THESE STRANGE VISIONS. HAS ANYONE EVER HEARD OF THIS HAPPENING POST SURGERY AND IS THERE A NAME FOR IT? I FEEL LIKE A FREAK!! I CANT BE THE ONLY PERSON WHO HAS EVER EXPERIENCED THIS!!

- Left ovarie, two teratomas and 20 cm fibroid were removed from my uterus. Complications per sé, no. Thankfully!! But I needed a Ureteric Stent (Double J Catheter that goes from my kidney to my bladded) prior surgery, just in case. It was awful. A-W-F-U-L... Horrible. Everytime I peed I felt like fainting. It's like getting whipped down there... A burning sensation that made me so afraid of drinking water (and so peeing) that I'd rather just swallow pills with saliva. Thankfully when I had the operation they decided to put me a catheter so I won't pee myself because of the epidural. IT WAS THE BEST FEELING EVER... Not having that burning sensation everytime I peed felt like heave. Now, I gotta be careful not getting herniated. I'm still recovering from surgery.
