Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
David's recovery from the actual surgery is going well and he is now on an ordinary ward :-)
One thing he has is really bad indigestion which is distressing him. They are giving him omneprazole and gaviscon but it isn't having any effect. Is this a common problem? No one else on the ward seems to have it.
He is feeling quite down atm due to the fact that its just like he has had another stroke although they say its the effects of the old one come back not a new one. They borrowed a zimmer frame from an old lady further up the ward so he could get to the toilet but he couldnt really manage even with that so they are now saying when he is fit for discharge from his heart point of view which maybe later this week he may have to be transfered to a stroke ward nearer home.:-(
