Sam had his line resited today. He went in to theatre around 2 and recovery called about 3.30. He was the usual physical grumpy post op, and quite hard to comfort him as nothing you do is right. But he is happy watching a DVD in bed now. The surgeon inserted a wire into the existing line and manipulated it back into the right vein. So he hasn't actually got a new central line wound, although he does have the surgical incision in his neck.
The vesicostomy drain and bag is to stay in for another week, so that will be a challenge for mobility but hopefully home tomorrow.
