Instead of Greg himself, this is Eve, his wife. Yes, I do read his messages sometimes!
I'm proud of him, he is doing quite well, even if he gets a bit despondent at the slow rate of recovery. Do other people still get dizzy spells after 14 weeks post-op? Certainly the beta-blockers take the edge off things and that includes a glass of wine or any other euphoria! No more disappearing to the shed for a quiet puff on the pipe, that's for sure... Well, he was lucky: for me to be there and for him to pull through. We're still waiting for a first hospital check-up: top-rate surgeons seem to be much in demand - for conferences! My question is: should Greg start a rehab programme, doing a few more exercises than just the gentle (sometimes brisk) daily walks? He could ask his GP for a referral - is it worth it, should he start on some cardio-vascular exercises? Alright for me to advise, but I'm no expert and so far there is no advice from any other corner. There's a drop-in centre somewhere, but not so handy if you're not sure about driving and not fainting..
Good to hear all your experiences - and to see so many make it through alright!
