Jean in Newcastle Posted March 13, 2012 Share Posted March 13, 2012 (edited) in less than an hour. She has peripheral vascular disease and had 3 stents put in only a few months ago. She's going to need more stents now - some aortic stents and possibly one in her femoral artery in her leg. She had a mini collapse in her shower just a couple of days ago that is worrisome. Hopefully all the tests they do before the procedure will give them wisdom on how to proceed. Please pray: 1. That she comes through the procedure ok. It's routine but not without risks. 2. That they are able to get the stents in the right place. The last time they had some trouble due to how many she needed just in one area. 3. That there are no complications. Last time she came home she had to be rushed to the hospital by ambulance because she was bleeding out from her incision. 4. That if they tell her to stay overnight that she does it! 5. That the femoral artery one really helps her. She's been in pain when walking for months. 6. And that if she knows what's good for her that she calls me with updates! She promised. Update: I just heard from Roughcollie. She is still in recovery. She has had two stents put in - one in each leg. She is not allowed to go until she can walk with out pain. She is finding it painful to lie flat on her back. She is uncharacteristically subdued. But she told me that I had to make this update cheerful. http://www.wolfescape.com/Humour/Med...nYourHeart.gif Edited March 13, 2012 by Jean in Newcastle Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
