Just finished the medical examination, others are happy that there is no arrow on the medical examination list. But for Lily, the real pain has just begun.
Her medical checklist says “Breast Mass”.
In the highly developed information age, she was too worried that she was the disease.
For a week she barely slept, and she plucked up the courage to walk into the hospital.
Despite doctors telling her to “observe,” she couldn’t tolerate the mass on her body for a minute at this point.
Before surgery, various inspections, various signatures. Soon, she was lying on the operating table.
As the anaesthetist says, this is a short intravenous anaesthetic. After half an hour, she opened her eyes.
Before she could react, she was pushed back to the ward by the nurse.
According to the nurse’s instructions, she moved her tired body to her own bed.
During the period, she also tried to feel the pain of the scalpel. Because she heard people say: After the operation, the incision is very painful.
She felt no pain at all, and she even wondered if her surgery was done.
She was relieved to learn from the anesthesiologist who sent her back to the ward that the operation was indeed done.
I thought the operation would be so easy and finished, but the feeling after that made her really experience what it means to be “unbearable”.
As soon as the wave of people in surgical gowns left, the ward nurse came to take over. Crackling, telling her all kinds of not allowed.
Lying on the bed, she thought to herself: Since she came to the hospital, let’s do as others asked. However, one of the demands made her really miserable.
With full consciousness, her body’s senses returned to normal, even more sensitive than before the surgery.
I was about to ask the nurse for saliva when I suddenly realized that my tongue had stuck to my teeth at some point.
After several attempts, she finally ripped her tongue from her teeth. That feeling, she even felt that her tongue had been broken.
The hurried nurse heard that she wanted to drink water, and immediately told her: The doctor said that she could not eat or drink for six hours.
Just about to ask why, the nurse was called away by the bell of another bed.
The time at this time is two o’clock in the afternoon. This means that, counting from the night before, she has not eaten or drank for almost 20 hours. I don’t eat, I’m hungry, and I can barely bear it. But how can thirst be endured?
The more thirsty she felt, the more she could feel the dry itching in her throat and the unbearable all over her body.
Called the nurse again, she reluctantly moistened her tongue with the only moisture in her mouth and asked: Why don’t you let me drink water?
As requested by the doctor.
No pain at all and I woke up safely. However, the anesthesiologist refused to let her drink water, which made her very puzzled. The original gratitude has now vanished.
She even yelled: Then you brought the anesthesiologist, and I wondered why it wasn’t allowed to drink? Even the gastroscope is also intravenous anesthesia, and there is no such requirement!
The nurse couldn’t explain why the anesthesiologist had this request, so she called the anesthesiologist.
Soon, the anesthesiologist came to the ward.
After hearing that the patient was very thirsty and asked for water, the anesthesiologist asked the ward nurse: Do you need to fast?
No. Isn’t that what your anesthesiologist asked for?
I didn’t say it. This is not a major operation, nor is it an intestinal operation. The anesthesia has completely recovered. As long as the patient can swallow it, it is fine to drink a little.
Then don’t go. After drinking the water, you are here to watch.
The anesthesiologist has a bitter heart: if the patient is allowed to drink, he has to watch in the ward. However, Corey has a lot of work; not allowed, the patient is full of anger. Lips that are almost bursting indicate that the patient is really thirsty and miserable.
On the way back to the anesthesiology department, the anesthesiologist thought: When did this rule be left behind?
At that time, it was understandable to worry about the patients choking when everyone was not awake from anesthesia. But today’s anesthesia control and recovery from anesthesia for minor operations are very thorough. It is indeed unreasonable to keep such a request.
