Bypass surgery. What to expect?
Yesterday we were told that DH needs to have bypass surgery. He's now waiting to be transferred from our local NH hospital to Mass General in Boston. We've been told surgery will probably take place on Friday, as they need to flush out a blood thinner med he takes from his system.
I'm finding the waiting and unknown is driving me crazy.
If anyone has experience with this, I would love to know what to expect. I'm totally confident with MGH, it's the recovery at home that I'm clueless about. I have a difficult time asking for help, but I'm guessing I'll need to get over that.
