After the operation the surgeon came to explain the findings of the surgical exploration I had recently. However, even though I may have been half awake, I was still under the anaesthetics and have no recollection at all of what he said.
As no family members are allowed to stay with the patient there was no one that could ask any relevant questions.
Later a very nice nurse tried to explain to me what had happened and gave me a copy of the discharge summary. With that information I have been looking in internet trying to understand the situation only to get terrified by all the options which may probably not be applicable.
