Surgery

Posted by @rrowner2, Wed, Sep 19 9:15am

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!

Thank you so much, be glad when it’s over. Take care

My husband had his surgery on August 3rd along with triple by pass. He is 71 and was in a full week do to complication with his pace maker. We had reservation to fly home on the 11th. There were no problems as far as health to fly. We in fact were told the day you are released you can fly.
