I am saddened to learn about Queen Fabiola's health condition. Unfortunately her age works against her chances of recovery. I hope that she will be recover.

I am a bit confused about the hypnosis. Was this done in lieu of anaesthesia? Is this something that is frequently done in Belgium? I have never heard of anyone undergoing hypnosis for surgery.

Queen Fabiola is in my thoughts and prayers.

Hypnosis as aneasthesia is long accepted and nothing new,it is done everywhere if you so wish.
Ofcourse the procedure is not used with thorax and other serious op´s.

it is only used for minor surgery. The idea is that the patient concentrates so deeply on anything (but not that knife cutting away) that they don't feel it. Compare it to a doctor talking to a child and keeping it busy when he tries to give it an injection. For me it never worked, but some get so caught up in the story they/the doctor tell(s) that they don't feel the injection. It's the same principle.

ETA: just heard on the radio: the Palace says the condition of the Queen is "serious but stable". She has a serious pneumonia.

i never heard of it either. it seems strange to me though to just cut without any sort of anaesthetics. i wonder if it's a common practice everywhere.

poor fabiola, she seems such a lovely lady.

My thoughts are with Queen Fabiola and her family. I hope she is comfortable and that the loving care she receives will help her to recover.

Well, I believe that in her age it's very dangerous even get a cold. Let's hope for her recovery.

Cool

Hypnosis is not common in surgery where I work, usually with a patient as Queen Fabiola she would be given a very light anesthesia, but that's not without complications and since she seems to be very frail these last few years, she would have had a thorough pre-op exam as I'm sure she did before her surgery.
The thyroid problem must have been severe enough if the surgeons had to operate. I'll pray for her.

Yes,she was also given a very light aneasthesia.

According to the latest communique of the Royal Palace,the condition of HM has not improved nor deteriorated.

Still cause for serious concern.


Queen Fabiola has always made clear that she is not afraid to pass over,she trusts completely on her faith,sees
it as the beginning of a new life,and moreover the joy to be reunited with her beloved Baudouin.

Last night however belgian tv had a program in which people on the streets were asked wheter or not they would
go to Brussels in case the Queen died....and more of that sort of thing.

Totally tasteless as I'm sure many will agree.
