I had a CABGx4 at the Bristol Heart Institute which went well according to the medics. Wounds seem to be healing nicely as far as I can tell but I get a sometimes uncomfortable feeling of tightness and numbness in the upper chest area. It feels as if I've got scaffolding on my chest whenever I get up and walk about.
Has anyone else had experience of this - oh, and occasional oedema in my left foot and ankle on the harvested leg.
Eager to hear about other people's experiences!
