      Have had a ghastly couple of weeks. 
      Had an incisional hernia repair and was sent home with a paralytic post surgical ileus and small bowel obstruction. This could have been avoided by two simple questions every patient who has had a GA should be asked, and particularly when the surgeon said to the nursing staff to watch out for ileus. Readmitted and discharged still with it, and readmitted again.  Now, thankfully home.  As a nurse, all I can say is nursing care - isn't.  If you or any of your loved ones can avoid going into hospital, don't go.
      This is for Kazbo:
