Anyone had Heart surgery 10:03 - Mar 2 with 11468 views2Thomas2Bowles

After having some pain in my back (not unusual being in a wheelchair), neck and jaw pain(new) it turned out to be a low-level heart attack

Had an angiogram Tuesday
LMS Minor disease
LAD Severe disease
LCx Severe ""
RCA completely blocked
Leaking heart valve

Told
Not treatable with stents
High risk with open heart as complicated
Will be seeing a surgeon who does keyhole, for a better word, not hopeful

Hate Hospitals
Hate surgery

Anyone with experience?

Yes I know some of you don't believe I even had a heart!

Yeh and thanks

All a bit strange and a shock, no real indication before maybe masked by other ailments. I have a few.

Pain, Not what you would consider being a HA no chest pain, no angina, normal BP 98% sats, no real warning of anything else till the neck and jaw pain.

Yes, very recent experience. Had a heart valve replaced just 6 weeks ago. Had a leaky valve my whole life, even ran 8 marathons but never knew. Got much worse 6 months ago but now I’ve had it replaced I feel great.

Trust your surgeon mate, they can do wonderful things now so get it fixed and you can get on with your life.

All the best mate, hope it goes well.

Open heart surgery. I’m lucky that I live in Brisbane as the 4 best cardiac hospitals in the country are all here. My surgeon has done more valve replacements than any other surgeon currently operating in Australia.

You’ll be ok mate. Have faith. Faith is the opposite of fear.

Good luck.

YES.
Back in the 90s I had two heart attacks. Urgent tests revealed I had an aortic root aneurysm when they rushed me into Harefield Hospital. It turned out it was the largest aneurysm (8.5cm) they had ever seen on someone still living! Sir Magdi Yacoub, the famous heart specialist, performed my heart surgery in a 9 hour operation and managed to save my heart valve so I didn't need a transplant.(And ALL on the NHS!) I still get checked out yearly in Harefield's outpatients, where there is a statue of Sir Magdi - it always brings a tear to my eye when I see it.

I'm telling you this to encourage you as I am still here and fairly fit at 67 years of age (with a new Grandchild) so there can be long life after heart surgery. Show your heart surgeon this if you wish.

One thing I have to be careful of though - too much stress.

So why am I still supporting QPR??????? LOL

Wishing you all the very best for the future, mate.

Sorry to hear that mate. I wish you a speedy and more importantly, a full recovery.

I'm stunned given the bestial manner in which i abused my body as a brassneck chalkstripe ponce in the city square mile in the 90's and first half of the noughties, that i'm still in relatively good health.

We are so fragile . look after yourself me old mucker.

Sounds hideous, best of luck to you. Best of luck to us all i suppose. Friend of mine given less than a year recently, didn't even realise he was ill, only just turned 50, couple of young kids. Life can be tough.

Try to keep positive where possible, don't let the buggers get you down.

Thanks for that Berko.

I still have a lot of questions that need clearing up when I see the surgeon I've been allocated
Clearly doing nothing is likely to result in another HA and not with any good outcome

I asked to come home and not amitted as it would have been a 3/4 week or longer wait for surgery anyway.

Pissed off with my GP, well really her staff, can't get an appointment until April
Fecking gatekeepers who only care about admin.

Stress you say!!!!

Thanks, Tim, sorry to hear about your friend that's dreadful

Coming up to 60, up to 50 I was pretty fit (a far as I know) this last 10 years has been all downhill.

Heart surgery. It sounds scary. But then it seems BerkoRanger has had more heart attacks than I've had hot dinners.

Best Wishes.
