Post-op questions for OHS in 4 yo Asd patch

My kiddo has problems with trusting me and now terrified of blood and pain? We are 5days post. And my other question is regarding small pericardial effusion? Does this go away on its own?

Give the pain and blood thing some time. Everyone will take some time to forget a surgery. I just had thoracic fusion and if you would have asked me a few days after I would have been telling no one to ever have it. BUT after some time I have forgotten the pain and my initial reaction my husband and I just spoke of it. I wish you strength and your kiddo health and recovery!
