Re: my knee surgery

Those two things--nausea and delirium--can also be the unfortunate side effects of intravenous narcotic pain medications.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] my knee surgery

Tricia,<br>I'm so glad you came through this ok. My friend's husband
just had knee <br>surgery Tuesday and he will finally get out of the
hospital today if all <br>goes well. I don't understand all the details,
but she wrote, "his <br>intestinal system objected to the abuse of
surgery and drugs and decided to <br>stage a revolt. Gabe has had a
miserable 36 hours putting down the stomach <br>rebellion, A GI
specialist was called in and Intravenous fluids were <br>restarted, as
of 9 this evening after some very interesting side effects of <br>new
drugs the nausea and dizziness has subsided."<br>Then last night she
filled us in on some of the side effects. The staff <br>called her in at
1am because Gabe had had a nightmare or something and had <br>ripped out
the IV lines and whatever was on his knees and walked down the <br>hall
without his walker. She had to go in and "lay on top of him the rest
<br>of the night" so he would stay in bed as they were too short staffed

keep <br>an eye on him. She added that, so far, the hospital bill was
over $105,000 <br>which doesn't include doctors' bills. Fortunately,
with the new insurance <br>plan she had opted for, their share of
everything is only $600.<br><br>Kitty<br>neIN, Zone 5<br>----- Original

and the first night is over. If I can just get used to <br>>using
crutches this won't be too bad. They gave me a machine that I am

physical <br>>therapist to have the drain tube taken out and an ice
bladder put on that <br>>will circulate ice water around my knee
constantly.<br>> I had gone out and taken 120 pictures of my gardens so
that while I am <br>> down I can still get to the computer to look at
them.<br>> We have had wonderful

weather for quite awhile so I had time to get almost <br>> everything
caught up. I had dwarf Alberta spruces in to huge pots by my <br>>
garage. They had gotten so big that I moved them to other places in the
<br>> yard and replaced them with "Gold Cone" Junipers. Has anyone ever
grown <br>> this variety?<br>> Thank you for all of your prayers!<br>>
