My friend Carol, whom many of you were kind enough to send encouraging messages to a few weeks back, has had her liver resection on 10/24. She is home now. Experiencing pain of course (as well as the loss of her Jersey Shore home - the bottom level anyway..but she is fortunate to have a second home North that just lost power, so she is staying there to recoup)...can anyone give me some advice on any info to control the pain and more importantly, what to be aware of as far as complications. Her vitals were a bit off this week (don't know 'where' yet) but seem to be ok now. Please give me any 'tips' as to what to be prepared for so I can stay ahead of any possible complications if possible.
She has been up and taking walks (her normal routine is a few miles a day)...she walked quite a bit yesterday, so think her pain yesterday came from that, but it's the vitals that concern me. She came home one week after operation.
Many thanks -
