Hi!
This is really strange because a family member is informed about completion of the surgery and allowed to meet the patient once. Also, after a neck and spine surgery, the surgeon visits the patient frequently. Also, pain medication can be given in collaboration with the anesthetist on duty. The nurse can coordinate with the anesthetist. At times the patient is allowed to monitor her pain medication through a pump. There is something really amiss. Please talk to the nursing supervisor and the hospital superintendent/manager and the patient assistance cell. Also talk to her surgeon. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
