    I am headed under the knife and saw tomorrow for a triple by-pass. Anyone have any advice, experience in what to expect?

    Stay away from the Hate Club threads until you're completely recovered.


    And good luck.

    Good luck. I have a fib so I'll need it someday to fix the valve. I'm only 29 so I'm gonna wait a bit

    make sure your rehab is top notch, do everything your doctors tell you, make sure you have your spouse or another loved when at every appointment, and with you every time you talk to a medical professional, you'll be drugged up and overwhelmed, so another set (or two) of ears is very helpful.

    You diet should be consistent, especially fruits and vegetable because you will be on blood thinner and you have to maintain your vitamin K levels

    Holy shit!!!

    Good luck. I personally haven't had open heart surgery, but just about every single other person in my family has. :oops:
    The last one was my uncle, who had it done this spring.

    Obviously, yours isn't emergency surgery, so that should make things SO much better. My uncle's wasn't, either. His recover was light years better than my dad, grandma and two aunts (and all the others I know), who all had massive heart attacks, and had emergency open heart.

    I'll say a prayer for you. I'll be looking forward to you coming back and updating us on your recovery. Best of luck to you.

    Whatever you do, do not let them give you an IV with ringers lactate. Good luck to ya, please post after your surgery to let us know that you are still alive. Just in case, please include me in your will. Pease and love.

    Thanks all! I already have had 2 heart attacks (03 and 06) & 3 stents placed but this time more stents can't help me. I am pretty nervous and hope the sleeping pill they prescribed ( Restoril) will knock me out fast.

    Now wait. Think about it for a moment. He's going to have new or at least much more free flowing arteries. It's like a do over, back to the starting line.
    I'm not sure how old he is but he's starting with a clean slate.

    Considering Carson is/was a neurosurgeon, that's good advice.
