To quote one of my favorite singers.
New port surgery went well. Just one glitch and it's not a new one. It appears that some nursing staff are not familiar with the particular heart device my hubby has. It is a "hybrid" unit which only fires on the top half. The bottom half only fires if he goes into V-fib, to restart the heart. Therefore his EKG's look different. DESPITE POINTING THIS OUT TO THEM BEFORE SURGERY, they still called the mfg. rep. to come check the device after surgery. This also happened last year at a different hospital.
You all know how much I enjoy repeating myself to medical staff. NOT! I GIVE UP!!!
The surgeon said this is the third one of these ports he's had to replace for being defective. He changed brands or something. Too bad, he didn't stop at one.
Chemo is on the menu for Monday.
