continuation from Part 3…..
When I was at the recuperation bay outside the OT after the c-section, I saw the young lady who went in for a brain surgery on my right and the man who went in for a nose surgery on my left. The man had a bandage on the bridge of his nose and he was still unconscious. I was really curious why he needed the nose surgery. Moments later, he looked as if he wanted to puke and he looked really horrible. The nurse who was attending to me shouted out to her colleague to bring a kidney tray to catch his vomit and to bring an instrument that looked like a tube (don’t know what it’s called) to insert into his mouth. The scene was like the scene from the series ER and it was gory. I saw the man painfully puked out blood through the transparent tube and he made gory puking sounds too, like he was in great pain. That lasted for almost 15 minutes. I was horrified. That explains why I can never ever be a nurse or a doctor.
I turned to my right and saw a nurse trying to wake the young lady who had gone in for a brain surgery up. She was saying “Miss XXX, please wake up, your surgery is over, wake up, do you hear me, Miss XXX, do you hear me?” in Mandarin. The young lady did not open her eyes and was still heavily sedated. Before I could see if she did wake up or not, I was wheeled back to my room. Till today, I still think of this young lady and the man who had gone for the nose surgery. I wonder how this young lady is doing after the brain surgery.
