Last Minute CPNE Care Plan questions Desperate for Help

Posted

The hospital where I will be taking my CPNE does a lot of bariatric surgeries. I have been having trouble writing my practice care plans. I am used to writing Acute pain r/t tissue trauma for post-op patients but I know from a friend who had this surgery that the pain is not so much from the small incisions but from the gas. How would I write that correctly? Acute pain r/t ____________???? Does anyone have any other good ideas for appropriate nursing diagnoses for these patients who have their procedure on Friday and are discharged on Sunday? Thank you all so much for any help you can give me since I leave tomorrow for my CPNE!!:crying2:

You can still say from tissue trauma because if they did not cut you open there would have been no gas pain, as long as they have a pain greater than 3 you can use it.

Thanks You very much for putting my mind at ease,:wink2:. any other suggestions if they have just been medicated.

Under abdominal pain in Mosby's they have Acute pain r/t retention of air AEB pain value of 6 on scale of 0-10. Hows that one?:D

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!! :bow: Why didn't I see that? Must be the nerves. Can you think of any other possible nursing diagnoses for a bariatric post op patient if they don't have pain?
