My 86-year-old dad had a triple bypass last year. It’s not been a success unfortunately. He had anaemia and a few transfusions and fluid on the lung which has been drained several times.
He’s pretty much housebound as going out brings on fits on breathlessness. With so little exercise and not much of a life, his appetite is non-existent. He had to give the operation a go. He knew the risks, but it’s sadly not paid off.
A GP came yesterday and said (o heard this second hand) he hasn’t much time left. I’m after more information obviously, but I don’t doubt what the GP said.
I’m curious what causes the breathlessness as it’s this which will finish him off. Has anyone else experienced this after heart surgery!
