A vein was harvested from my leg an still have swelling, but told will resolve in monthshowever my big concern an issue is left breast where artery was harvested.
mildly painful all the time, but cough sneeze OMG! And will hurt all day!
only thing that seems to help is heart pillow, very Tight w/ slight downward pressure.
feel like cutlet off the rib bone , has eased up but don't dare not have pillow close.
normal? How long can I expect it to resolve?
Richard,thanks for the reply, as you can see from my reply to Ira, much better and I keep the pillow close.
I do have odd back ache too.
my blood tests show I'm almost anemic from the blood loss. Could be slowing the healing.
now on Iron blood building supplement but that takes time too.
sleep is sporadic so like you say for now I just sleep when body says so.
been walking, my circle is 2 tenths of mile. I'm up to 1 .6 mile and 1 or 2 . 2 walksas for rehab, see my reply to Marvin. W/ viruslockdown need to find rehab at home links, videos no substitute for real thing but need to keep goingthanksTom
Thanks for the reply,it wasn't bad initially, then I had a bad cough spell. Mann, it hurt, had to go back to pain pills for couple days, much better again.
I can feel it most of the day and as they would ask the pain is a 1-2. Mildly hurts with cough,hurt pretty good with a sneeze, but this time reasonably quickly calmed down.
I will try & check w cardiologist this week but they are having strange hours in SFL with Covid.
Hey Marvin,Thanks for Responding, as you can see from the reply to Ira, getting better.I thought of the forum because I get posts.its a great resource, as I recall we got most new visits at chapter meetings after 4-6 weeks and many interim experiences resolved in some way.visit exits should emphasize the point .Will call this week, question,with virus shutdown I won't be able to start cardiac rehab in next 2weeks .
Are there any links to suggestions for aRehab at Home?
Will be nice to catch up!regardsTom
