"Mum contracted pneumonia after operation at Treliske Hospital"

About: Treliske Hospital

(as a relative),

My mum went into Treliske hospital very healthy and fit for a minor operation, she stayed over night and was discharged the next day.

On her return home she rapidly became very ill and I had to call an emergency ambulance to take her back into hopsital. After doing some tests its transpired that she has pneumonia, low blood pressure, a racing heat with irregular heart beat and low sodium levels that are making her mentally confused.

I am very worried -how can this be when she was so healthy? She is still there and so I hope that she will recover- but why the sudden illnesses? I will update my story as it unravels.
