Hello all, my father had a triple heart bypass in July at the age of 85. At that age, recovery will obviously be a lengthy process. However, I’m not noticing any recovering, and if anything he’s deteriorating.
I’m obviously no doctor, but I can see he’s too unwell and/or lacks the confidence to walk more than a few steps. He also has a poor appetite. These two points may be related.
It seems strange there is no encouragement to perform exercises or physiotherapy after a heart bypass. I think such physio must be an option, but he’s not been given the information.
Does anyone have information or experience of post-bypass physio, please?
