I had a quadruple by pass in 1998. Done on a Monday ready for home on Friday. Slight setback delayed going home until Monday. No problems at all. Back at work in a month. You will be in good hands. Do as they tell you. I was told to walk as soon as possible. Just increased it to suit and was soon seeing areas of Abram I hadn’t seen since childhood. Good luck.

All the best for tomorrow, you will be in good hands I'm sure.
In the thoughts and if it is ok with you then also in my prayers. Let us know when you are up and about again.

Everything will be fine Dazzylatic, as Broady says, you are in good hands.

You will soon be running around like a young 'un.

My dad had a triple bypass in 1993. He was more bothered about the fact that he had a massive tattoo of a golden eagle with its wings spread across his chest. The surgeon promised him he would do his best to line it up and he was true to his word.

My dad died nearly 5 years ago age 71 and his quality of life following the operation was so much better.

Health is wealth dazzylatic and wishing you all the very best for your procedure.

its quite natural to feel anxious,i have had four lots of surgery, some minor, some unfortunately not so.
just try and keep as calm as possible over the weekend ,easier said than done ,but you will wonder why you worried later next week when you come through it ok.

Best wishes Dazzy.
I had a stent fitted at MRI after a heart attack, I had superb treatment, they even showed me ‘before and after’ pictures of my blocked and unblocked arteries on an overhead screen.
You are in the best place you could be for your op, they are fantastic professionals there.
Good luck for a speedy recovery.

My brother had surgery at MRI in Jan. 2018 and has his specialist there. He received excellent care and the staff are great.

Like the others say, you are in good hands. Now just get well!

Any update yet hope everything went well for you .

Mate, eight years ago I had a quadruple heart bypass done at MRI Manchester after two heart attacks, and having a stent inserted as well. All I can tell you is the ward I was put on the night before my operation wasn't the best, or maybe it was just that I was scared at the thought of tomorrow. The intensive care unit, you won't remember much about, but the general ward was fine, and the staff were brilliant with me. You'll soon be home and sore, so don't worry too much. PS, must be honest the food is much better at Wigan. lol
