First, I was just told about this site and forum, glad to have found it and joined! I might have just read and not posted had I not had a not so great go of it since my right anterior THR yesterday... Had it performed by a well respected and experienced surgeon at a surgery center, which they told me presents less MRSA/pneumonia/etc. risk. The first little inkling that something was amiss was when I kept feeling discomfort at the IV site in the crook of my arm. I was pretty wiped out and out of it when I got back from surgery, so apparently did not realize until early evening that they had actually sent me home with the IV port still in my vein and taped down to my arm! So a call to the answering service and they told me I could go to an ER to have it taken out or do it myself, so obviously did it with my wife at home...ok, kinda weird and a bit unsettling. I then spent a pretty uncomfortable and restless night, in pain, shaky for some reason and very dry feeling. This morning, I use my walker to get into the bathroom, start to feel really dizzy and lightheaded, and proceed to pass out, fortunately my wife was able to get me back into a chair and off the floor. I had a scheduled post op visit from a home health care nurse about an hour later, so she arrived and immediately saw my blood pressure was very low (it typically is low for me), and when I was sitting up or standing it would drop even further, systolic sometimes getting as low as the 70’s or 80’s. The nurse said this is no good, I need fluids to get my pressure up, so I end up in an ambulance back to a hospital this time for a saline IV bag and tests. The nurse asks me if they either got me up after surgery or gave me fluids at the surgery center, I didn’t really remember but my wife confirmed they did not, just put me in a wheelchair to the car and did not give me any fluids afterward, so needless to say the nurse wasn’t so enthused about this. So now I am home again after like 6 hours of going to, staying at and returning home from the hospital, my bp and vitals were stable and good and I feel much less lightheaded now, but obviously am not so happy about any of this... Btw, I am an otherwise healthy, active and fit 56 year old man.
