Six weeks ago, my husband underwent heart bypass surgery and ended up having 6 bypasses. He feels great with the exception discomfort especially around his incision. He still relies on pain medication during the day and at night. He can't get into a comfortable position in order to get a good nights sleep. He has been walking a mile and a half since the third week, and keeping daily activities to a minimal, i.e. not lifting, etc. Should I be concerned that he is still experiencing pain?
my husband is recovering from bypass surgery five weeks on,feeling good but has a lot of tenderness in chest and soreness in top of his leg where vein was taken.Thinking of you and wishing you both well at this difficult time
Hi. Thank you for the note. It has been about 10 weeks since my husband's surgery and I think he is finally back to normal. He is doing alot better, no more pain, and is walking long distances every day. I was really worried for awhile afterwards. It is so hard seeing your loved one like this, but I thank God everyday that he is still here. Hope everything turns out great for you. If you have any questions, or just need someone to help you through, let me know.
