... There is always a risk, but the risk is fairly minimal. he has a higher risk of a severe heart attack. Honest, Ive had a quadruple (all 4 arteries) and a valve replacement, granted I am younger, but still he should be fine. There are medications that help, but they are long term and drs may feel by-pass is the only remedy available. Educate yourself on the histories of... (4 replies)

Taking Life Back

... :confused: I have a question with people that have been through a bi-pass surgery. How long did it take you to get active and to have the energy to be active? How soon do you go back to doing the things you used to such as dancing, moving furniture, raking leaves and so forth. I guess you can call me a cardiac cripple. I'm too afraid to do the things I used to do. You can... (3 replies)

I agree... (8 replies)
