Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection
I mentioned i was having a Dacron tube fitted May 4th. Unfortunately two hours into the operation i developed a reaction to the antibiotics and the surgeon pulled the operation at the last minute. I awoke in intensive care and later developed severe neck strain, they say from lying awkwardly on the table & the tube inserted into my spine! I have spent a week in bed recovering unable to support my head & with headaches. Friday I went back to allergy tests & they pinpointed the antibiotic. Today I had to go back as my body reacted badly to the testing & they have put me on anti histamines & other medication.
I am trying to put a positive spin on it, but to be honest its been the worst fortnight of my life, even my first opp repairing the dissection was better than this.
Still I have no choice and am awaiting a new date. I am seeing my counsellor to try & make sense of it all.
Gosh if it could only be that simple!
