First post since my pre op introduction.
Admission to Bart's 31 Oct surgery following day. Went in expecting 3xcabg plus an aortic valve replacement.
Met surgeon on evening of admission and he said one of the bypasses wasn't worth doing as although it was a total blockage it was very near to the bottom of the artery and there would be little to be gained bypassing the blockage.
So surgery 1st Nov., 2 days ICU and back to ward. Then a bombshell from the surgeon, they had done 2xcabg and an Aortic valve REPAIR!!!!???
Never previously mentioned as a possibility in fact never even heard of such a thing.
Not a single reference on this site, has anyone had this done or know anything about it?
6 days post op discharged home and doing well, 6 week follow up booked, expect a grilling Mr cardiologist.
