Open Heart Surgery - post surgery problems
I had open heart surgery to replace the aortic valve and to trim an expanding aorta.  The post surgery problems I have had included some very excruciating muscle spasms,  back pain, sore ribs, sturnum and a sore diaphram.  My surgery occured 6/29/2009 and the soreness in the ribs, back, sturnum, and diaphram still exist when I take a deep breath. I also,  have this uncontrolled urge to take a deep breath,  as when one yawns,  or sighs. It is as if my body wants to streach the chest cavity.  Sort of a self healing body process. I have been told that one out of 25 have the muscle spasms after surgery ( extremely painfull and lasted for over 14 days ).  I have also been told that it can take up to 6 months for a full recovery.  I am posting this question to confirm such problems and the recovery period.
