PostSubject: Surgery Success!!!   Tue Nov 17, 2009 10:53 am

TWINS Trishna and Krishna are recovering after marathon surgery of almost 32 hours, described as a "perfect" operation.

Royal Children's Hospital head of surgery Leo Donnan emerged from the hospital shortly about 4.30pm today to declare the twins were now recovering in intensive care following the completion of five hours or reconstructive surgery.

It came about three-and-a-half hours after he revealed the twins were successfully separated after almost 27 hours of complex surgery, the Herald Sun reports.

Mr Donnan said the twins were "in good condition and healthy".

"They’re both where we thought they’d be."

He said the large team of surgeons were happy with the result, and resting with some effectively on their feet for nearly the entire operation.

"They’re satisfied that they’ve got through it technically correctly and now they can stand back and look at two individuals rather than just concentrating on the technical side of it."

Despite the good prognosis, he said the girls still faced many challenges in their recovery.

"They’ve been very optimistic but pragmatic about the girls. It will be very many days before we know how well it’s gone."

He said the focus would now be ensuring the girls were healthy over the next few days.

Margaret Smith from the Children First Foundation, the organisation that brought the Bangladeshi orphans to Australia, was trying to contain her joy and that of the foundation's driving force Moira Kelly.

"I think she’s overwhelmed that this has actually come to fruition. And just so grateful to the team here that they’ve been able to pull this off."

The final separation of the three-year-old girls, who were joined at the head, occurred at 11am.

"We are taking it step by step - we don't want to get too excited, but I must say it's a very big step we have come to," Ms Smith said.

She said the girls' guardian Moria Kelly was "absolutely amazed".

"It's been a very stressful time ... we have the next step to go through, getting the girls into ICU and getting them stabilised," she said.

"It's a long process."

Ms Kelly has thanked people for their support and asked everyone to "keep the prayers coming".

WOW. A big congrats to the team that did this operation. And considering for how long they did it! Top marks to all of them! Smile Glad to hear the twins are okay too

I heard on the radio on the way to school that they were still in surgery, and I was stoked to hear that it was a success when I got home.
