I thought it was going to be smooth sailing then what happens? The nurse comes in and says you need to have an emergency blood transfusion. GO figure.

So sorry...Try to remain calm and breathe slowly as this will help your heart rate and all the other bodily processes as you get your transfusion. I will pray for you...

The pain is better than the first day. I had, to have another transfusion this morning. I knew I felt terrible gut didn't realize I was in such bad shape. My bp was 72/40. After the first transfusion my bp came up a tiny bit. My blood count went from 4 to 8. So I'm wondering what it went to after the 2nd transfusion. Idk thank God I had a surgeon who knew his stuff. Especially since he said my insides were a mess from the first bypass. It took 2 hrs just to clean my insides, up before he could even start the revision.

Ya I'm not complaining as long as I keep progressing every day. Thank goodness I had Dr. K with all the crap he said he had to fix before even starting to do the surgery. 2 hours is a long, time to be getting rid of adhesions. I never would have thought I would ever needed not 1 but 2 transfusions. THANK GOD IM ALIVE!
