Aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm - The aorta - Life after an aortic dissection

Hello again, I kinda made an inquiry about something on a previous post that I still haven't found a solution to. And if anyone else has any insight on this I would appreciate some feed back.

I used to work in construction before my surgery and like I mentioned before I tried after my operation and I can no longer do that job. So what I was wondering is what other kind of jobs do you thing I should look into out there. I live in Sudbury Ontario Canada, and I am itching to return back to work before I loose my beautiful house. I simply haven't been able to come up with an alternate solution to the money I used to earn doing what I used to do but can't do anymore. Trust me I tried to make it work but failed miserably. Which is one of many reasons why I feel like a failure in life since my surgery. Also considering the fact that my heart specialist adamantly believes that I am better than I was before and doesn't seem to want to listen to me when I asked him to sign off on allowing me to go for retraining.

It's all very discouraging if you ask me, I apologize for being long winded, but I feel it only fair that I explain everything so nothing needs to be repeated.

One of my current strong points is my obsession with anything apple makes. I'm a huge fan. Anything anyone I know has ever asked me about solving problems with these devices I can answer without any hesitation. However there is no apple store where I live and retail retail stores don't pay much. I'm good with my hands, and I also like to invent things and improve on existing products. I even enjoy building things that I need instead of buying them as long as it doesn't require a great amount of effort.

Anyways if anybody has any ideas I thank you in advance, and eagerly await your responses. Talk to all of you soon and thanks again.

Hi Bernie,

What about setting up as a repair person for Apple devices? My son has needed a new 'bit' on his Macbook and we took it to be fixed locally to someone not attached to Apple - just advertises locally.

Good luck
Nicola

I would think that if you have so much experience in construction, you could become a consultant/advisor or a teacher/trainer. That way you can impart your knowledge to others without having to do anything too physical.

Bernie, I think you need to really talk to your local/regional employment group about retraining and explain your situation and see if they and you can come up with anything. You obviously have a knack for technology which should stand you in good stead. I am a bit (a lot!) amazed that your doctors would allow you to go back into heavy construction - lifting stuff etc etc..thats a NO NO after an AD! I think its time to leave the doctors to their own opinion and start finding some answers outside of the medical opinions.  

 

cheers
