This is my first post since I had the open-heart surgery (single bypass) on 5/10/07. All went well with the surgery but I am weaker than I want to be. It seems it hurts to do just about anything but you just force yourself to do it. I went to the surgeon on Wednesday and he allowed me to start driving again. The only real problem I am having is an infection at the top of the incision and that is being treated with antibiotics. I hope to resume my posts on the Internet in about a week. Regards, Richard

Best wishes on a full recovery and it's great to have you back! My dad had two bypass surgeries and it was six weeks before they let him drive! Give yourself time and God Bless!

Glad to hear you're back and on the mend, Richard. Hang in there. My Mom was feeling like you are now after her bypass surgery, but all in all, she's in good shape now. Give it some time and you will be good as new.... :wink

Hey Richard, glad you're recovering and on the mend. Good news is you're still in good enough shape to complain about how you feel! You'll be right again soon. Hope it all heals up fast and you can be active again soon.

My apologies, Richard. I just now saw this thread.
I offer my best wishes to you for a full recovery. I know how you feel. BTDT. I had quadruple by-pass surgery in 1993, I'm still going strong.

Hope that you continue to recover quickly!

Welcome back Richard. Keep your chin up, you will be good as new soon. It's amazing what they can do for people now days. My Dad had quintuple bypass surgery over 10 years ago and was was there when he came out of the surgery. I couldn't believe that people could be up and walking w/in 24 hours. My Dad had a few complications and had to stay in the hospital for a week, but he came home, and had no heart problems. The one thing I will say is make sure you exercise as much as possible. Walk around the neighborhood, or buy a treadmill, but get your heart as strong as possible.
