use of -meanwhile-

United Kingdom

use of -meanwhile-
I feel that the use of �meanwhile� here is not correct.
The family is waiting to see if surgery is needed. Meanwhile, it seems she is not in much pain.
What do people think?
I think However, is appropriate.

Meanwhile is fine. However would be making more of a contrast...

Both are definitely correct. Because the first sentence is about a time period, meanwhile is appropriate.
