renato,Good, very good, me too have had 3 by pass surgery,at age 59 after a casual heart control (stress test ) I got out the hospital in a 5 days. I refused the rehab, i did it on my way going to the sea side in Sicily and starting to swim slowly again. plus long walks every day. Continue to do what you are doing,eat correctly be positive and listen to you body speaking with it. Ciao Renato
eichardthestentman,Ive had quintuple bypass as well. Fifty two per cent of people undergoing this operation (which they call a Cabbage and in our case Cabbage times 5) has severe depression. I did. Nothing to do with new circumstances in my life, its just a biochemicsl reaction and can last up to a year. Stop running start walking I now walk 7-10 miles a dsy, lost 50 lb snd am in the best shape of my life Richard
prowallace,I am so impressed by your stories. I can't imagine how you must felt almost betrayed that here you were being physical and trying to be healthy and to find out that you had blockage and needed quintuple bypass! I would love to encourage you that it is not that you are to blame. It is not your fault, Truth is that if you weren't taken such good care of yourself you probably wouldn't have survived it. Many people just have a heart attack and die. You survived! That's because you did have some healthy habits. I would love to talk to you on our TV show and for you inspire others with your story. Please reach out to me if you are interested. We have lots of stories of amazing survivors like you and we welcome talking to someone who survived quintuple bypass! Congratulations.
