Recovery time?

Postby Greenblood » Sun Aug 04, 2019 5:42 pm

Just wondering if anyone has had by-pass surgery and how long did it take you to get back on a bike?

From the people I have known that had triple or quad, these days it is not such a big deal to get done.
If you are reasonably healthy otherwise I'm guessing a week or two in the hospital depending on how much of a backlog there is for beds.
Of course you get some impressive scars in the deal and you might get knocked around a bit by the drugs for a while, but I doubt you would be off the bike for a long time.

Hey Joe

That's not great news. For what it is worth I have know a few people who have had these ops. They all bounced back pretty quickly and back on the pies n beers.

Good luck with it.
cheers

Had my blow out on Feb 16th, operated Feb 26th, home on 3rd of March.

First 6 weeks are the absolute pits, you can barely wipe your own backside.

Luckily, they harvested the arteries from my forearm, and not my legs, so i could get around, albeit slowly.

I started driving again after a month, slowly, was against doctors orders (they specify 6 weeks minimum but i was the only one with a license at the time)

No bike for 2 months, at all, the position youre in while riding is the EXACT one they want you to avoid.

Make sure you get yourself enrolled in the CAEP (Cardiac Rehab) program in the hospital, they really help.

Its now October, it still hurts sometimes, but I go to the gym 3-5 times a week, walk a minimum of 4k's every night.

Its going to feel like the end of the fucking world for the first couple of days, you have to push yourself through it, get out of the bed, get into a chair within 24 hours, get your feet under your, and make sure youve got a firm pillow to hold against your chest while you cough, and keep that thing nearby for the next 2 months, why? you hold it against your chest when you cough or sneeze, it stops your chest expanding too much, trust me, sneezing still feels bad 7 months later.

Make godamned certain you do the breathing exercises after the surgery, they literally shut down your heart and lungs, you need to blow your lungs back up again, if you dont, you will be in deep, SERIOUS shit.
If youre living on the edge, youre taking up too much space
