Poor Hubby has had a little bit of a set back.. nothing serious, but he has haematoma very badly. Basically a lot of bleeding and swelling under the skin at the surgery site. It has put such pressure on that area that he is in unbearable pain. He was in so much pain he woke me up at 5am to take him into the hospital. We were worried he may have had an infection or pulled out one of the leads.
Good news is that the leads are fine and there is no infection, which could have been very bad. Very, very bad.
Basically there is nothing he can do but keep resting and taking the pain medication. It is very hard to watch though. He is in so much pain, and there is nothing I can do to alleviate it. The pain meds work sporadically. He is not getting much sleep either. The doctor is certain that it will start getting better now that the swelling has gone down. I just wish it would go quicker.
One thing we are a little pissed off about is that they were a little misleading at how brutal this procedure was. Everyone said it was in and out and paracetamol at the most. Hubby said it is the worst pain he has ever been in and he has an insane pain threshold. He is literally black and blue and yellow with bruising. It looks shocking.
I just feel so helpless.
