Glad to hear you are doing better, and hope all goes well. I have had 2 back surgeries, a hip replacement, and a partial knee replacement. all took a while to heal, just listen to the Doc., like the others said, and take it slow.

Get well soon.
The surgeons in the States are the best in the world so you should get a good result if you follow what they say.Its good to hear that the medical system is still functioning despite the recent situation . Over here despite very few COVID cases all routine surgery and cancer screening went on hold in the unrealized expectation of our health system being overwhelmed - A decision we may well end up paying for later

Anthony,
Glad we weren’t born fifty years sooner. We probably would not have been able to get the treatments they can do today.
Mine was open heart, seven years ago.
Be careful. We are praying for ya.

Clif, think again about the heart surgery.
I had the bungie cord put around a heart valve and now I don’t run out of breath quickly like I did all my life.
But...they also did a single bypass because I had one real small artery near my heart.
Bypass connections last an average of seven years. When they break you’re dead.
I got mine seven years ago.
I’ve known them to last twenty. I would hesitate getting a bypass. Especially if the problem was there since birth.
I’m glad I got my valve fixed but I wish I had not got the bypass.

I had my triple by-pass 15 years ago along with 4 stents and they are all still passing inspection yearly. Great heart doctor.
