Today’s the day.

The day has arrived when my husband goes into hospital for his triple bypass surgery. Operation scheduled for Thursday morning. So many mixed feeling my head is spinning. Relief that it’s maybe the start of a better life for him and fear of losing him. Not being able to visit him is just adding to my stress levels. Fingers crossed

I'm sure everyone here wishes you and your husband all the best. It is a scary road, but together you can get through this!! Don't forget to breathe. Your husband is in safe hands, but needs you to look after you!! Take care!

Hi Milo47. He will be in good hands and I am sure all will go okay, the not being able to visit sucks, but you will soon have him home. Let us know how things go, we are all here for you both. Take care, keep safe. Ruth

Thanks for your reply ❤️

Wishing both of you all the best and hope to hear from you next week that he is home. Take care of yourself ... you will be nervous until you hear he is ok post surgery. But he will be well looked after and he will be home soon.

Thank you ❤️

I found the team prepare you mentally so well before the op I can honestly say I never felt what I thought I would feel and before I knew it I was back in recovery.

Morning. My bypass surgery is about midday today. Came in yesterday late afternoon and now I'm here my nerves seem to have settled. Still a bit scared but think the anticipation is usually worse than the event.

I hope all goes well for your husband tomorrow and the very best of luck for a speedy recovery. Sending best wishes to you both 💐💐💕

Sorry it's been cancelled. Very disappointing for you. Use this time to try and get fitter( if you need to) and keep up the exercises and walk every day ( if able). Take care and stay safe x x

Good luck to you for your surgery later. You are absolutely right that a stoic sense comes over us when we are in situe in hospital, not a calmness but a resolution and acceptance and readiness for the work ahead. A bravery even. Best wishes, please let us know how you progress.

Wishing you both best wishes I can only say having worked in general practice the patients that used to say they felt so so much better after this kind of operation so try (I know it’s hard when you can’t be with him ) but see it as a new beginning he will get the best care and also you to look after him take care😊

The very best of luck to you both, fingers crossed for a speedy recovery!

Best of luck to you both and wishing your hubby a speedy recovery.

Wish him good luck he is in good hands the surgeons do this every day i had quad bypass in 2011 i was the same worried anxious no visitors but the nursing staff will look after him you have to be positive and strong for when he gets home , gaz

Thank you. ❤️

All best wishes. My husband had a triple bypass 3.5 years ago, he worked hard on recovery and did really well.Remember that for the medical staff, this is what they do all the time and they are expert.

The not visiting is horrible, but the staff understand this as well, so hopefully you'll be able to phone and do Facetime etc

Thinking of you both this morning. Hope all goes well and you can start new chapter in your lives 💕

Good luck to your hubby today. I'm 5 months today and doing well. Staff will take great care of him. Look forward to be coming home and starting on the road to recovery x x

So worrying I know. All will be well. My operation was meant to be yesterday and was cancelled. Told I would have it this morning as was first on the list . Still waiting and fear it may be cancelled again.

Hope all goes smoothly for your dear husband and sending very best wishes to you both. 💐💐💐
