Topic: my husband Jon
I have not posted on here very often , but I did post that my husband Jon was to have a liver resection on 21/11/06 .It was a very large tumour 7.5cm by 9cm and they had to remover about 80% of the liver .We were warned it was risky ,about a 1 in 10 chance of survival , but he wanted to take that chance. Unfortunately 12 days post op he had to return to Theatre to have his abdomen drainied , due to a severe infection , he then developed renal faliure . he was in the ICU hooked uo to all sorts of medication and a dialysis machine , they kept him sedated and on a respirator as after the inital op he developed encephalopathy and was very confused and paranoid. Unfortunately after 3 days in the ICU he passed away . All his family were with him and he looked very peacefull.
I do not regert taking the chance on the operation and have the utmost praise for the surgeon and his team.
