Good on you mate. I feel better already !Had a quadruple bypass eight years ago and am enjoying life ,seven months after the op I walked up Moel Fammau a mountain I played on as a child when I got to the top I cried my eyes out,but I was as happy as a pig in ****e and I still am apparently I was assured that many people shed a few tears after the opp ,stay positive and good luck.
P.S. Don't take any sh1t from the medics, although they can be unconsciously amusing when they patronise you. One French auxiliary told me to "Fais dodo" or "Go byebyes." I was stuck for a sufficiently infantile response.I had two cardiac arteries replaced as the third one was doing extra work. I thought a quadruple job was only done by American surgeons to show off. My operation was 21 years ago, so I'm out of warranty and doing fine. Just started cycling to work (on small ferries) mostly downhill, but with enough climbs to give me some exercise. Wife collects me and the bike after work. I shall be 80 next January.
