Hello - I hope someone here can give me some information as I seem bereft of it at present. I am new hear so please bear with me.
Four weeks ago today (4th June) I had a heart attack. I was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital where I spent four days. An angiogram revealed that I need a triple bypass.
I chose to have my op at the John Radcliffe in Oxford - I work in Oxford and it's where my partner lives.
Basically nobody has given me an idea as to any timescales. I still don't have an initial appointment with my consultant, so I do not know how long after that op I am likely to have my triple CABG, I do not know what the recovery time is and what the timescale is for me to be returning to my job (I am a teacher). A little bit of information would be wonderful, as it would ease my stress levels.
I might add that there are two things that I can, and have done for myself - it is now day 29 since I smoked my last cigarette and I have lost 20 pounds in weight (still another 45 to go!
