Update on Hubbys Surgery

Patti1 Member Posts: 109 Member
Good evening All,

Update..What a long and exhausting day, hubby was in surgery for 6 1/2 hours today,
they did perform a Left Trisegmentectomy on his Liver and also removed some of his diaphgram , as the tumor did invade that area also. He is breathing on his own and knew I was there tonite. He does have a arterial line,central line, ng tube, and you name it. But as usual, he amazes me with his strength and courage.We have to watch the next 24 hours for blood loss from the liver and for the next three days we are watching the bile duct. If all goes well he will be in 7-14 days. I want to thank all of you for your prayers and support.

Love ya All

    The Waiting Room Here was Full......
    What a relief to hear that your husband is ok. Oh, being tethered like he is coming out of surgery is never any fun, but very good that he came through ok.

    Hoping your hospital stay is a good one and that he can return home soon...no place like home:)

    I'm really glad to hear that things went well and are ok with you. I'm always the patient and my wife is like you, waiting on the outcome and putting in the long hours at the hospital.

    Once they secured me after surgery, I had my wife go home and rest because I was in IR and visitation was limited and there was nothing more she could do to help me. Maybe you can get some zzzzzz's tonight too:)

    Thanks for your update.

    So happy
    Patti, thank you for sharing the good news. Take care of yourself, you still have some major caring for when he gets home. And at least another week of the hospital which is always draining. I still never figured out why staying by my loved one's bed in a comfortable chair wore me out more than cleaning a big house. hmm.. stress maybe in part.

    Get rest when you can, some fresh air and know you are in my prayers. Soon he will be home. Hugs and sunshine, Joyce

    Hey Patti
    I'm glad the surgery is over and that hubby is fine. It's great that breathing is not a problem. If he has a wound vac, keep an eye on it. Make sure it's running properly when he gets back in bed after walking. (I say this because mine gave me some problems.)

    I'm very interested to hear what the surgeon says. I hope the report is excellent.

    As others have said. Take of yourself too and get some rest.

    I hope the recovery goes well and you get home soon.

    Thanks for the update- wow, a long and fairly complicated surgery. It does amaze me what they can do by surgery and all at once. I'm glad your hubby came through it all right & I will be thinking of him (and you) during this next week or two as he recovers. May I also pray?
    You take care and try to get your rest, as well.
