  • Blue= lack of oxygen.

    Lack of oxygen= NOT GOOD.

    Call the hospital and tell them. I'm about 100% positive they sent you home with discharge papers, correct?

    Read them and follow.....

  • I would call the doctor who preformed the surgery's emergency number. They may want you to get it check out now.

  • We have people come in here who want to go to the ER for a sore throat and a fever of 99 and then we have people who come in post surg with a limb that is turning blue and they DON'T go to the ER.

    It's madness!
