Bypass surgery

Posted by tkdunlap @tkdunlap, Jul 17, 2017

My husband has 4 bypasses last August….. this past week …. he had stents placed in each of the graphs….. Dr told us 3 were blocked 99.9 -and other was 85….. originally we were told that the surgery normally last between 8 and 10 years…… we are left wondering what happened ans what do we do different….. I am panicked ….. has this happened to anyone else and what are you doing??? We did all the things we were told but …… then this????


Hi @lioness,

You may notice that I moved your discussion and combined it with this existing discussion as I thought it would be beneficial for you to be introduced to other members who have also discussed bypass surgery.

You must be relieved to know that your cardiac health is good? How long did it take for you to recover from the bypass surgery?

It has been one month today that I had 2 bypasses and a stent, my chest is so painful and tight? I’m having burning, stinging,
Pains. Has anyone experienced this? Feels like something is wrong in there doesn’t feel right.
