So my girlfriend had surgery on her wrist a couple of days ago cause she tore the ligaments or something. And before surgery they told me and her parents that cause shes so small (shes a small girl for 17) if they give her too much stuff to make her go to sleep, her heart will stop, if they dont give enough, she will wake up.

So her operation was suposed to go for 45 minutes and 30 minute recovery time (just a day operation) and it ended up going for 4 hours 30 minutes with 2 hours recovery time. About 1 hour and 20 minutes in a nurse came out and told us she had an allergic reaction to the stuff to make her go to sleep, and they also gave her too much and her heart had stopped.

When i heard that, i got that feeling when your stomach just like sinks into yourself and you cant breath or think straight, just wondering if this was really happening.

I knew after about 1 hour and 10 minutes in something had gone wrong cause she had already been almost half an hour over expected time.

Her parents went for a walk to let time pass, but i couldnt leave the waiting room, i was so scared.

She woke up during recovery and she wanted us to go in, but i was the only one there, so i waited with her the full 2 hours, then when we took her home, i stayed with her all night, and was with her till 12:30 last night. Then i left cause i had work today, i just called a couple of minutes ago but she was asleep.

Shes better now, but shes a bit sick and really tired and sore.

TL;DR: There is none, if you dont care enough to read, GTFO!

And so this doesnt get closed cause its blog-like, have any of you guys ever come close/or have lost a loved one in an operation/surgery that you never thought could kill them?

Na man, I haven't had that, but I can definitely imagine that being rough.

My ex breaking up with me was horrible. I felt that the person that I cared about the most wasn't there anymore, and that was absolutely terrible. I can't even imagine how it would be fearing her losing her life. Hope everything stays good

You are obviously an extremely nice guy. I hope she has no more problems with her operation and hopefully nothing that extreme will happen in the future.

Good luck to you both.
#13
I heart the vast amount of care is this thread.


On topic though, I'm glad she come through for ya. I can't imagine what that must've felt like.

The weird thing is, she still doesnt believe that she nearly died, and believe the surgery went 3 hours too long, so she is no where near as startled as me and her parents.

Thanks again to you guys

This is one of my favourite things about UG, yes we can all be retards, but when something like this happens, you get full support from everyone, thanks again guys

I haven't had a similar experience, but I think I can imagine how hard those moments would be. You seem cool TS.

They gave her too much instead of too little?
They sound like morans!

They really were idiots, well i dont really blame them, it was a bad day from the start, there was only about 2 doctors and 3 nurses working in that part that day, all day...

But i dont know how she would have reacted, waking up mid surgery probably going to be able to feel them cutting and all, im glad she doesnt believe it, otherwhys i dont know how she would be feeling now.

When we took my cat in to get fixed, they gave her too much anestesea(sp?) and she almost died, she didn't have any body heat of her own, we had to put her on a heating pad all night
but she got out of it good!

But she got ran over a few months later

RIP squeak

Damn man!

The closest thing i can sympathize with you on is... Well see, my ex was a diabetic (type one, she was VERY sexy.) and when i took her to the beach she went VERY high and couldn't walk or stand up or even talk very good. So i literally carried her a half a mile to the car, drove her to the hotel, carried her to one of those carts for your luggage and rolled her to the room where i proceeded to inject her with insulin. She passed out in the car and i was panicking and freaked out and by the time i got her injected i carried her to the bed and watched her for a bit, and ended up collapsing next to her and waking up 5 hours later and she was fine.

No problem man.

It wasn't heroism. It was doing what needed to be done for somebody that i loved.

Besides, i had the know-how. I've been giving myself insulin since before most of you were out of diapers.

wait so your dating an older chick?


nice

Only a year older, and when were standing up, it looks like im dating a 10 year old, thats how short she is, but shes grown :P

Wow, I read that as "My girlfriend died in surgery", so my heart sank, then I felt so much better that she is actually alive.

But still, hugs for you and your girlfriend: no-one should have to experience something like that, but at least it turned out for the better

Well she probably has a nice rack if you were attracted to her.

Serious response: good luck, i hope she gets better. Who knows, her new found respect for life might have her doing more adventurous things if you know what i'm saying.

^ In hindsight that wasn't such a serious response

dude, you love her a lot. if i heard that the heart stopped, i would have gotten to the nurse and say gett\ it going again. she should see her old age. get her to stay. do whatever it takes. I would've gone bizerk. glad to hear she's doing great

amaranth_todd: No offence, but i wouldnt even come to UG and tell them this, well not at least for like a month, i would be crying so much, i wouldnt go to school, and id say **** my school certificate exams.

TOMMYB22:That she does :P But i really do love her, she ****in' awesome

Never lost anyone in surgery. My dad has had adverse reactions to whatever the doctors have given him, though. He was having his esophagus stretched, and the medication made him go nuts - beyond his control kind of stuff. He bit the doctor's hand and everything.

Stuff like that is hard to get exactly right. Doctors are human, too. It's good to hear your girl made it.
