My husband is scheduled for septal myectomy in Rochester on October 4, what can we expect post surgery especially traveling home to California

A typical hospital stay is 5-6 days. Some people stay in the area for another day or two…it depends on how fast a healer he is and what kind of overall condition is he is in. I'm 55 and a good healer — I had a myectomy on July 23 and flew home to Dallas on July 28. It's nice to have a direct flight to keep the travel time down, but the flying wasn't a big deal….just a little awkward since you can't carry more than 5 pounds!
