My husband had Para esophageal hernia repair on 11/11/2013. It was huge and high up in his chest cavity.
We planned for an overnight stay in the hospital and remained there for 9 days
He really has not recovered as we had hoped he would.
Still weak, tires easily and has very little energy. Some days lately has felt pretty good though and we both have been thankful for that.
Now today 32 days after surgery he feels as if he will vomit each time he tries eats, thus has eaten very little.
He has lost about
22 pounds since the surgery and overall I feel he isn`t doing well.
I need to add that he is also a heart patient and diabetic. He`s 74 years of age as well.
Does anyone here have any idea why this wanting to vomit has started this long after surgery?
As far as pain, he doesn`t have that anymore. Thanks in advance for any ideas that anyone might have to help us.
We do not see his surgeon again until December 26.
