I'm just guessing TG, but I would think that an aortic aneurysm should be a pretty easy fix as far as cardiac surgery is involved because the heart isn't involved. Your heart is likely very healthy. Once a tube is inserted in your aorta to stop it from bulging, you should be good for life.Glad to hear you are in good spirits and recovering , David! May have to PM you with a few questions when you are feeling a little stronger.
DDD, if anybody facing open heart surgery has any tribulations at all...they should cast them completely aside. I feel great..!!David how you making out young fella. Healing fast I hope !
Thinking of you today and hoping your recovery is going wellDDD, if anybody facing open heart surgery has any tribulations at all...they should cast them completely aside. I feel great..!!
My family doctor took out the staples yesterday. Was able to take a full shower last night and I'm off all of the post operative medication. I'm following my walking and exercise program diligently and can feel myself getting stronger day by day. What a great feeling to have all of this behind me...!!!
I'm so glad that I received a biologic aortic valve. My own veins were used for the 2 bypasses so nothing mechanical was used. The significance of this is that there is less chance of blood clots and complications and I won't have to be on blood thinners. I'm so glad..!! Once my sternum heals, there's no reason why I shouldn't be as active as I was before...and I won't have to worry about keeling over on my next step...LOL
Thanks for asking...All the best

Great to hear from you and that you are doing well everyone is thinking of you hereThanks Joe,
I'm in my 5th week of recovery and was able to make two preparations for the moose hunting crew: Moose Won Tons and Corned Moose. I still have to pace myself but man it feels good to be able to cook again and do physical stuff even if it's on a limited basis.
I don't mind the little bump in the road. Missing the moose hunt will actually give me more time to prepare for the deer hunting season. God willing, I'll be back at it next year. This would have been my 27th year going to Hunters' Mountain so I can't complain.
