Paging medical types: I just watched the interview Rob. He mentioned he was in hospital every three days or so. That sounds like a lot. Does his comment suggest anything about his situation (or do I just not understand the level of post-op care in cases like his).
It does sound like a lot unless there is some underlying complication. When I had my hemicolectomy, although not nearly as invasive, I was on my own until a follow up appointment weeks later. But I suspect Rob is receiving special treatment. Maybe the appointments are simply to renew his pain meds. Then again he did refer to drainage tubes which I imagine need attention.
