My Dad (72 years old) had heart bypass surgery 6 months back in India, Doctor haven't disclosed us from where he has taken the vein/artery to bypass, certainly he has not taken it from the leg. Does anyone know apart from leg from where the doctors take the vein/artery to bypass the heart blockage.
Major issues my dad is having:
1. Abdominal Pain: He is having severe pain inside abdominal, he doesn't know if these are stitches or something else. Its being 6 months he is unable to stand straight due to the abdominal pain, as soon he tries to stand straight he feel abdominal stretch causing severe pain from inside. He always complain that he feels like doctor has taken vein from the abdomen, which we do not know if it so. We still are not clear how long this pain will stay or will ever go away.
2. Arms and Shoulder weakness: His arms and should has become very week over these 6 months that he is unable to lift himself from the bed.
Does any one having similar issue, If so, is there any recommendation or insight someone can provide ?
