Father's surgery
« on: September 18, 2016, 11:16:16 PM »
Thank you all for the birthday wishes.
As I had posted there, my father was admitted on the same day for bypass surgery. There were 100 % blockages according to the doctors. Post surgery, there were complications of internal bleeding. It seems the blood thinners were responsible for that. Spent the past 3 days in a miserable condition. Now things are stabilised and he is out of danger. Still in the ICU but doing better.

I am wishing your Dad a speedy recovery!  I went through something like this with my Dad when he was only 47.  Back in those days they had a lot less they could do for these problems, and it was extremely risky.   It was a struggle, but he made it and lived to be 69 which was a gift we all appreciated.  His overall health was not as good as it could have been, but it really did not slow him down after about a year of recovery....

Keep your head up, today they can do so much more than before.   I'd bet good money your Dad would come out of this fine....

Glad he is doing better.  It is a scary thing to deal with, but hoping for a speedy recovery.  He should feel a lot better after he has recovered.

I remember how scared I was when my mom had her bypass back in 1980, but she fought to recover & lived another thirty-some years. So happy he's getting stronger, and best wishes for your peace of mind.  ~hug~

Thank you everyone, for the good wishes and the prayers. They certainly helped. At one stage the doctors gave us a good fright by rolling him back into the OT after about 2-3 hours after the bypass. But the bleeding did stop. He's fine and at home now.  ;D
We are very relieved.
