That's heavy :|

I'm not an expert on all things surgery but i found this: What to Expect Immediately After Coronary Bypass Surgery

And i found this: What Is Heart Bypass Surgery?

Wish you all the best for your upcoming surgery, and don't be scared you will be asleep during the surgery anyway. :)

It's ok. It's wonderful they can detect these things now and not that having
a heart attack is good, it is fortunate that they did detect this.

You'll feel much better, physically and mentally.

I wish you the best and can only encourage you by telling you that these bypass surgeries have become quite common now. That doesn't make them less scary to the person undergoing the procedure but at least you know their success rates are good. I've had two family members receive bypass surgeries over 20 years ago. They have done very well and live full lives. One even remarried and started a new life.

I'm sure you've already done this but be sure to ask your doctor about options for less invasive procedures. One of my relatives is scheduled to have a heart valve replacement surgery but they don't even have to open up her chest as is done in open heart surgery. It's amazing what they can do now.

Good luck to you.

My best wishes for your complete recovery.

Discuss all the aspects with your doctor and also explore 2nd opinions. Also explore thoroughly on the web.
