I have infection. Hope they can find source before heart kills me. I was in surgery and woke up to find surgery was aborted.

Recovery will be pretty annoying, but after that you should be good as new!

Best wishes!

(2,047 posts)I had triple by-pass surgery in Dec. of 2010.

Quite literally the most difficult thing immediately post op was I couldn't communicate.

The surgeons and recovery nurses were asking me questions I couldn't answer because I had a tube going down into my lungs.

It kept me alive!! This isn't a complaint!!!

But if I had had a note-pad and a pencil, I COULD have answered them! IT would have been so much less anxiety provoking.

If you have a family member who will be present in post-op, you might warn them and have them available with a notepad and a pencil.

(82,699 posts)Sending you thoughts of strength and healing. Visualize the color green. Green is the color of healing, health, youth, new growth, revitalization, and Spring. I did that while trying to stay sane throughout my mom's first serious heart attack. Even wore green. It actually helped, weirdly enough.
