I had a catheterization on a Thursday and Friday morning a quadruple bypass. Sept. 1, 2017. I had no pain either before or after the surgery. This summer, I was on the tennis court 7 days a week, either teaching or just hitting or playing. (73 yrs old) Stick with it! Feel free to contact me. 🙏
Immediately after the surgery (probably because of the anesthesia) I probably didn't think that clearly.
Now, I don't seem to exhibit any memory problems. I still love reading, working math problems, and playing chess. With the better circulation after the surgery everything is going well!
I had my triple bypass 8/20/20, I was sedated after the 9 hour surgery. I was still had all the tubes, when my husband came into ICU, I was told this. I was a diabetic for the 4 days, with sugar up to 400, was given insulin for the 4 days I was in the hospital. very uncomfortable to talk due to the 4 drainage tubes I had coming out of my abdomen. It took a while to move me out of ICU, I keeper getting very dizzy when they got me up. At midnight, they got me to my room, I went into Afib. That day I had the tubes removed, weird feeling, but no pain. I was taken for a walk, but could not go far. The following day, I was given blood, I thing I got super woman blood, after I was able to walk the whole hallway. I was discharged the next day.
My pain was controlled good with the pain medication. I had a great recovery.
In 2010, I had open heart surgery for a new aortic valve, plus a bonus, triple bypass. I needed the valve asap, the bypasses were because I was like 75%blocked. Most of surgery I don't remember the whole day of surgery, and do remember that I didn't present correctly after surgery and had to remain on the ventilator until next day. that was the worst part of the surgery, by far. I didn't care for the ventilator. got thru it ok and was up walking the day after surgery. I was surprised that my chest didn't hurt badly...I didn't expect it to go so good. of course, open heart is no walk in the park, but I thought it we much easier than I expected.
