My husband was at St. Mary on August 3rd surgery. We stayed across the street at Aspen. There is a restaurant called Tonic next door that is ver healthy organic style. I’m sure you can have your diet met there.

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.
Question, my husbands surgery was on August 3rd, left Mayo on August 10. Approx two weeks later he started with a dry cough. His local cardiologist gave him some pills for the cough that help, but still bad. Wondering if anyone else had this?
Thank you for asking. He had his surgery on Friday August 3rd with Dr Schaff. All went well, and arrived home last night, Saturday August 11th. My husband is 71 years old and had Septal Myectomy, and triple bypass. It was later discovered that during surgery one if the wires from his pace maker was disturbed and I think damaged so they went in on Wed. August 8th. And replaced the wire. He ended up in the hospital a little longer then we expected. He slso came home needing oxygen for a couple of weeks. None if this is simple, cut and dry. Each person responds differently, and may Have a different recovery time. I must say I appreciate all the blogs, it helps families see that what they are experiencing is normal. I must comment on the fabulous nursing staff that Mayo has. They bent over backwards to help their patients.
Dr Schaff is doing the surgery, and Dr Nishimura is the doctor. Surgery is on Friday. I must say that the visit today for testing at Mayo was very good experience. They are the most efficient, Staff could not be any friendlier. We have some time tomorrow to look around, a staff member gave us recommendations to restaurants and a trolley ride around the area. Everything is spelled out before you get there, there are staff members all over to help you get around if you need. Can't say enough about impressed I was. Hoping St Mary's on Friday will be the same.
Thank you for your reply. It feels good knowing there are people out there who have gone thru the feelings one has. My husband seems calm however every so often the tention surfices. I can’t wait to be on our return journey home.
