Hi Steve,I had triple bypass surgery in Sept, 2018. At that time I was 82 years old. It has now been one year and 3 months since my surgery. I had a wonderful surgeon who gave me so much confidence in his description of my blockages and exactly what was going to be done.
My advice to you is to relax and let your surgeon do his job that he has trained for many years to do.
I was in the hospital for 10 days then went to rehab for 10 more days. Needless to say I was weak upon arriving home and had home health care that came in 3 times a week to take my vitals and for physical therapy. Physical therapy is a vital part of recovery, don't slack on that as it will build your strength. I participated in a 12 week supervised cardiac rehab at the hospital after my surgeon released me.
All in all I had an excellent recovery. I now go to the Y twice a week using the tread mill and other equipment. I feel great and have lost 35 pounds.Life is good! Another thing - prayer helps.May God bless and keep you on this journey.
