Pregnancy after CABG?

  • 1.  Pregnancy after CABG?

    So I know been kind of quiet since my first post, but I'm trying to get back into a normal routine. I'm coming up on 1 year post OP next month and its exciting and kind of scary. My current thoughts are with my future, I want a family, but dont know if it's possible to have a child of my own after my surgery.

    Have any younger women on here gotten pregnant after CABG? I know it's a long shot but I need some feed back before I start stressing about talking to my doctors about it.

    I'm wondering the same information.  I had a CABG x3 2 years ago.  My EF is 55-60%.  My cardiologist and cardiothoraciac surgeon both support me getting pregnant but I have been unable to convince my OB.  I am meeting with a high risk OB in a couple weeks and hope to get some answers.
