Welcome @swanny. Great to see that you’ve connected with @predictable and @hopeful33250. Like them, I would like to better understand the grunting symptom you mentioned.
I’d like to introduce you to a few members who have had coronary bypass surgery. @thankful @cynaburst @contender1 @retairforceman @ronbee @llecrup @lyndamm did you have any experience with grunting sounds post-op?
No I didn’t have anything like that. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? Sometimes I have wheezing sorts of congestion in my lungs. That could be cause for concern.
