Hi folks, bit of background, 73, never been in hospital until this September when I was taken into local hospital with food poisoning. While in A & E I had a heart attack. Following Angiogram I undertook Quadruple Bypass at the end of September and was discharged from Barts 5 days later. Now over three months since operation and no contact with Barts, local hospital tells me it doesn't follow up heart surgery so I am relying on my G P who is very good but it's not what I want.
I am a full time carer for my lovely wife who has been suffering with Alzheimer's for the last 13 years.
Am about to start an 8 week course of exercises organised by the NHS.
My question, (eventually!)
After mild work, say washing and dressing the wife I feel strange, a bit tired perhaps? Odd feeling in my chest, nothing drastic, just odd. I assume this is where my Sternum is healing, how long should it take to completely heal, given my age, so that I start to feel 'normal' again?
