For me it took almost two years,but remember everyone is different,some may heal slower than others.It may have taken longer for me because I have lupus.

Two years?  I was told that just before or after surgery, at the time I was still trying to get over the idea I just had a heart attack, let alone anything else I was told.  So, a time line of tasks able to be performed would be greatly appreciated, Even if it is distorted from other medical problems.

Don't know when Grampao2 had his surgery but I had mine just two months ago.

I had cabg surgery x5 March 30. After about two weeks a started having sigificant muscle discomfort and hypersensitive skin on my chest. However this, thank goodness, mostly went away after about 5 weeks. I am know 12 weeks after surgery and I am doing everything plus more than I did before. There is still some slight numbness around my chest muscles but I am 90% plus.

The breast bone itself for me healed fine and I was golfing, kayaking etc at 6 weeks.

Good Luck

I am 1 year post CABG X3 and 46 years old, good physical shape before and after surgery. It took a solid 6-8 months for my breast bone to heal to where I was confident enough to really pick anything up heavy. It hurt like hell for months at times.
