So dad went into surgery this am, cause they said he had a leak. One which the CT nor the sallow picked up. They said it was a tiny leak. Maybe went undected from the start. So they got in their and said the leak will correct it self and they also said found a ulcer but said it was common. So the flushed him out really well and inserted the chest tubes to drain him.. He also will just have tube feeding for a couple days, NOTHING BY MOUTH... They also said that the fluid in the chest cavity is not stool, I guess they may thought thats what it was... He is on antibotics and will continue them at home whenever he comes home. He will under go another sallow and ct tets as well...
Im just confused if their was a leak, why didnt they fix it? dont they fix them?
I kinda feel that its an infection and that is why they FLUSHED him out soo well. They went in cause I think they thought it may have been stool. I just dont understand it all. We ask them and they dont have answers, just it shouldnt happen again, Well you didnt fix it "you" said.
Merry christmas will be at the hospital, but dad's health is IMPORTANT to us!
