hi! i really don't know if i can be much help to you but my grandfather just had a quadrople by-pass surgery two weeks ago tomorrow. my pop-pop is also 78. sorry to hear about your father. was his surgery an emergency or was it scheduled? the doctor said that having the surgery following a heartattack makes them weaker. so he probably just needs to rest. does he respond to pain? i feel really bad for you. this whole ordeal has been very scary for us. so i can only imagine what you are going through. let me know how things are going. sorry i can't offer any advice.
I really hope that everyone is feeling better. My dad is 67 and just had a triple bypass. surprisingly he is walking around after only 11 days pass his operation but he complains about chest pain, sleeping issues, lack of pain killers and breathing problems. they are giving him Oxigen at the rehab and told him not to walk or bend too much. It is generally a very hard time for the patient to recover as they might be lonely, scared, unsure of their state of health, mixed with anxiety and weight loss.
Hello, I had a triple bypass two years ago. My recovery was wonderful. The home nurses told me that it would take years for me to completely heal. I try to tell my Husband that I cannot lift heavy items, or lift over him, but he doesn't seem to believe me. The main problem I have is when I bend over, then I get short of breath
Woman has a heart attack at 48 and received triple bypass surgery 12 years ago. No problems for 12 yrs now. What happens when this surgery begins to fail and what can be done to fix her up again.
My father had the same surgery 4 1/2 years ago. He slept quite a bit for a few weeks. Sometimes it is the body responding to new meds. My father also and failed kidneys, and has been on kidney dialysis for the same period. He is now 76. He failed to have proper physical therapy, and is bedridden. he still has a strong will to live. Once, a hospital was attempting physical therapy, to get him walking again (2years ago), and he had a stroke - it was too much for him. Take care of him and make him laugh!
My dad is 69 had triple bypass surgery, he went into the surgery under duress not sure if he should do it. The Doctors told him he would not live if he did not go through with it. We are day 6 after the bypass, dad is on calming medications, and still sedated. Every time they try to bring him to the awake stage, he becomes very aggetated and tries to pull his mask off, and wants to get out of bed, they have his hands restrained and it is just killing me to see this. The doctors tell me he is in some kind of withdrawl, he was not a heavy drinker, but the doctors told me he did not have to be. They want to do a brain scan now. I am terrified? Any thoughts on the duration he can be sedated. He is breathing with an oxygen mask on.
HAD 3 TIA
'S AFTER SURGURY STROKES THAT IS LEFT SIDE PARALYZED BUT NO PAIN ONLY TO MY EGO NAM VET WILL NOT LET A WAR 40 YEARS LATER COME BACK AND KILL ME
How long ago did you have the stroke? Did the Doctors tell you that it can take anything up to two years to get recovery? In many cases, people regain over 90% functionality, some 100%. It doesn't matter about the size of the brain tissue involved, it depends on the area. Most common symptoms are reduction of muscle control on one side of the body, reduction in speech control, taste buds can change making foods taste different, reduction in concentration. Other parts of the brain try to take over those functions and it's like learning to use your body again. Lots of physiotherapy is the key, the more you try using it, the more the brain will try to adapt.
My wife passed away this April for other reasons, but years back she suffered a big stroke which left her paralysed on one side, and unable to speak. After months of physio, she started to get some feeling back, and after a year she was 98% recovered. After the first year the recovery slowed, but was still there. To get her hand to work properly, I bought her some knitting needles and a book to teach her. Anything requiring lots of finger work is ideal.
