Seven years ago, i was listed as the "3% chance of survival" too. My open heart surgery ( for mitro valve repair) was complicated by Cardiogenic shock on the operating table. Then they put me in a medically induced coma. However Its my Husband who suffered the PTSD. Fortunately there was no permanent damage ( except some thinning of my hair) to any of my organs. The support from family Friends and eventually Mended Hearts has helped my husband. He goes faithfully to the men's breakfast as well as meetings, and has become program chairman for our chapter. Postoperatively, i did not suffer any depression; guess the doctors gave me the correct balance of antidepressants and anti anxiety medicines.
