After the surgery, he kept running a fever, at one time 103.5. Of course more tests were ran and nothing. However, was not releasing him til fever broke. Finally on the 10th day, it was determined he had got a staff infection on the lower part of his belly. The infection was poked open by the doctors finger and puss just poured out. he was placed on a very strong antibotic and began to feel better instantly. He still has his staples in the upper part of his belly, but has an open hole on e lower half. They sent us home placing only gauze over the wound and not providing any medicines to treat the hole.
I ask questions of what to expect, prognosis, etc and not getting any answers. They are referring us to Pittsburgh for the liver, but not answering any questions I have.
I don't know what to ask and when I do ask something want answers. Forget being vague.
Looking for meeting folks going thru same stuff, any assistance as far where to turn for everything.
