2016 needs to end now. My younger brother had emergency surgery today because of complications from the last surgery. He'll be in the hospital for another week. Still waiting on him to wake up from the anesthesia. 2016 has to stop.

He got a massive internal infection from the operation. They had to remove some masses of infection from his body. He'll be in the ICU for a week and a regular hospital room for another 2 after that. The next 72 hours is critical for him.
Sounds like they didn't give him good enough antibiotics, or perhaps having 2 surgeries already they became ineffective if they gave him the same kind both times. Sheesh.
I think they missed these hematoma blobs when they did the first surgery because it was done with laparoscopy. A week later and they got bigger and one busted which lead to the ER surgery. This time they opened him up straight down his stomach to make sure all the puss sacks were taken out. The doctor is saying he should recover 100% now that he got past this first night but he'll be in the ICU for a week. Hes in rough shape.
