shelliemacs Posted October 13, 2004 Share Posted October 13, 2004 Well I am home for a short brake then back to the hospital. my sisters surgery went ok. They were able to remove all of the breast tissue and placed an expander under her chest wall muscle. There were no complications during surgery. when we were able to see her she was bawling, absolutely bawling from the pain. I begged the onc. nurse to give her the pain shot but my sister had to show them her innerds were working if I am getting that point across. Well she was not able to get out of the bed because both arms were bound to her chest and they could not get a bed pan under her because it hurt her too much to move. So I said, "Kate, just pee in the bed will ya" so she did and two shots of demerol followed. I lost my mind and composure on her nurse and then broke down when I went back and apologized because my sisters pain was not his fault. I told him of the losses recently of my parents and he hugged me and said he understood. boy did I feel like a jerk. she will be in for a few days and is on massive antibiotics because of the open wound and chest tube thats in. I hope this is over. I am really starting to come to the end myself. I want to tell everyone who I have neglected. Dean Carl. Bean SI, Elaine, Andrea, Katie B, Connie, David, Fay, Ginny D, Rich, Grumpy, OK Debi, melinda and geoff, curtis, snowflake, debi, Don wood, angie D/O/B, Ry, Sandy, EVERYONE else who I am forgetting, or just cant think to write their names THANK YOU.
