My Dad had surgery to repair a tropical ulcer on his shin. It was very deep and ugly looking, we could see the bone. The next day he developed a clot under the surgery site and it had to be virtually re-done, including skin and tissue grafts. He was very poorly after 2 lots of major surgery, anaesthetic, antibiotics, pain killers etc.
Then he developed hiccups, which were more like violent spasms of the diaphragm, than "ordinary" hiccups. The Dr. said this can happen after surgery and prescribed every imaginable remedy, including injections of anti-spasmodics. Dad could not sleep or eat, if he attempted to eat, he would vomit. After 2 weeks of this we were shocked at how much he had deteriorated and feared for his life. We were fairly new to the oils then and not sure what to use.
To cut a long story short, it was suggested that Tarragon might help. A few drops were rubbed on the only patch on his foot not covered by bandages and he stopped hiccuping within a few minutes ! He slept soundly for many hours. When he woke the hiccups started again but one more lot of oil on his foot and the hiccups stopped again and did not return. From then on Dad began to recover and could eat and sleep again. Because of the set back, Dad was a long time regaining his strength but we are so thankful for the oils which literally saved his life. We now think oils first !
