I am 76yr old single male. I have had a single bypass and aortic valve replacement. 18weeks ago. The op was regarded by my registrar as very successful. I have no other health issues and don't smoke or drink. I dance, cycle, yoga, school volunteer and socialise as much as possible
I have the following residual problems to a greater or lesser degree. Irritability, panic attacks higher blood pressure, trouble sleeping, loss of mindfulness, loss of short term memory and mood swings (gloomy). I sometimes have lurid nonsense visions when I wake. I am still well away from my pre op stamina level but have completed the full cardiac rehab programme which showed 25% improvement. I had chronic persistent AF before my op and it remains. I take warfarin and 5mg Amlodipine daily.
I feel I don't have a lot to complain about but am interested in a similar status comparison if you have the time. -Thanks
