Mom's surgery didn't go as well as expected, but she's okay. She was having a device implanted in her back which would control the nerves / pain that she's had in her back/hip for years. It was supposed to be a quick 45 minute surgery and then sent home w/in a few hours. Surgery went great, but horrible pain in her abdomen started soon after. She went in for a CT scan. She was screaming/crying in pain, my sister said. They'd try to give her pain meds/sedation, but then her breathing became too shallow, and she wasn't getting enough oxygen. UGH. CT came back clear (so I guess device was okay), so they've determined that the abdominal nerves that run alongside the back nerves are fired up, swollen/inflamed. They're giving her steroids now to calm them down some. They'll keep her overnight, and my sister is staying. The hospital is about an hour away. I'll stay home tonight to 'work ahead' and plan to be there w/ her tomorrow for the duration (whether hospital or home).
