Fri CT scan showed the intestine perforation has yet healed, although there is no leak during the scan. Another good thing is the collection inside my hubby’s abdomen has not grown in size and they called it abcsess.
Surgical doc wants to drain the abcsess and to do test on the collection for better idea of antibiotics treatment for my hubby.
They have to do several test to see if the area showed improvement and then will let him eat.
Overall, his swelling has stopped completely because his weight has back to 44kgs which is after chemo weight. The water retention had put him for 10kgs increase to 54kgs. No wonder he could hardly move during the swelling time.
He has no pain, no heartburn, no vomiting, regular passing motion, sleep well. Just feel hungry all the time. His gastric juice suction has also gone down to few hundred ml.
The ward Doctors are still amazed on how TPN helped to stop my hubby’s swelling. I think Dr Radzi truly understands the situation better even he has not seen my hubby. Luckily we insisted for the treatment.
I realised the ward doctor always quote the worst case scenario and get patient to prepare for it. It is truly testing on our will strength.
We both enjoy the time to learn the Buddha’s way and discuss on it. We have no rush to return home for Chinese New Year.
I treasure the moment when I overheard my hubby’s snoring during sleep. I am thankful for he has been resting well.
Well, first in our lifetime to celebrate CNY here in hospital. I am satisfied enough for my hubby is well now.
Gong Xi Fa Cai, friends.
Huat Ar! 😀
