How long does it take to recover from by pass surgery? And feel like your old self?

Its been 3 months since my surgery ... everyone says I look great and I am doing more and more, but its not enough and I get tired easily
Does this go away ?

I am 3 years for my quadruple bypass and I was doing wonderful at a year, but I have had a set back of my blood pressure dropping when I stand up. Everyone hesls differently but if you don't feel right always tell your doctor.

I felt brand new when I woke up from the operation, and could do more than I had before, like walking and enjoying the world. It is difficult because one tends to overdo it too often. I mean by that you, have a new lease of life because your heart has been fixed. BUT whilst you were ill before your organs were not being supported well, your muscles were not being used as much because you were tired. All of these take time to start working again properly. As you get better so you do a bit more than you have been doing, now is the time for training, walks and stuff like that. You'll get there!
