reconstructive surgery/decann at the same time?
I am sure this type of question has been asked numerous times, so pardon my redundance.
Long story short, Faith had a bronch yesterday and the ENT said her airway is still pretty swollen, but is a candidate for reconstructive surgery (I was out of the room at the time, so I am going off what my DH said, and of course the "man-holes" are significant, so I am not sure what type of surgery would be required) and to my surprise they would decann at the same time.
This is very shocking considering Faith has a 4.0 trach, size 3 airway, is making no sound, has no leak, and has never been capped.
This is all talk and probably won't happen for another year (still on the vent), but I was just curious if this type of thing happens.
Have any of your kiddos had surgery and d/c at the same time? Even when their airways are otherwise compromised?
Thanks for any input,
Mommy to a little miracle named Faith born 15 weeks too soon. Not so vent dependent anymore....
