Melanie immediately knew something was definitely wrong and got orders to insert an NG tube, they got out about 2500cc of fluids.
I was admitted on a Friday after surgery and by Saturday night things started going downhill. I was very nauseous and my stomach started to feel distended. I wasn’t sure what was going on and it continued to get worse. My nurse came in on Monday morning, very stern, saying I had to get up and walk and not stay in bed all day. This upset me because she didn't realize how horrible I was feeling, but I did what she said, got up and walked, but unfortunately vomited in the hallway and again 2 more times after that. She immediately knew something was definitely wrong and got orders to insert an NG tube, they got out about 2500cc of fluids. Almost instantly, I started to feel better. That same nurse came in the next morning and was very attentive to me and all my needs. I finally got to go home and I truly believe if I hadn’t gotten the NG tube things would have gotten so much worse. We are so grateful to our nurse - Melanie Aguilar! There were other nurses that were so kind, but Melanie was so awesome! Thank you so much!
