It is crazy how they release people so soon after a major surgery. I spent the night
in the hospital after my back surgery and I was to be released the next morning.
My nurse knew I was in no shape to leave. I was so dizzy and nauseas. She fought
to keep me there and won.
Before anyone is released the patient should have post op instructions and a script.
The patient should be released only if there is a responsible party there to accompany the patient home. Ooooh, it makes me so mad that healthcare has no
respect for patients.
Hope your DIL has a quick, wonderful recovery!
