Well, after very mild symptoms over the past several months, my doc sent me for a nuclear stress test last week. I was admitted immmediately and had emergency quad bypass surgery on Friday. I am recovering nicely, and as I was just now playing with my lung gym inhaler thingy, I was wondering about the timeline for getting a horn back on my face. My sternum was cracked, so I have a very low weight restriction. I won't even consider it for the next month or so, but I was curious as to whether any of you have gone through this and what your experiences were.
i want to play it safe for obvios reasons. I am only 42, so my recovery is going very well, I'm already on my feet and walking around the cardiac unit several times a day.
I am sore, but alive and looking at playing plenty of notes in the future. I feel like my lung function will be even better as a result of this.
