  2. good news Jim. Take it slow and keep moving. I came home after 5 days in the dead of the winter. Slept in the recliner for one night and then propped up in bed with a bunch of pillows for the first week and then it was all down hill. I used to go to Home Depot because of the snow and ice to get my walking done each day. Got to know those aisles pretty well:D

    I've been through a couple of painful surgeries, and know it can get depressing hurting all the time. Stay ahead of the pain and take what you have to in order to stay as mobile as you are supposed to. Only thing ahead of you now is healing and feeling like a new man now. Best of luck in your recovery and steady as she goes!

    Wow good on you Jim. That’s faster than I would have thought.
    Your doctors do heart surgery like you build cars ;) :)
    Here’s to a speedy recovery with minimal pain and no complications.

    Make sure they lapped the valves in...get well soon and don't over do anything. It hurts a lot longer than it took to hurt it.
     
  9. Happy to read the good news.

    Welcome that pain, it’s letting you know you’re still with us!
    Follow Dr.s orders and you’ll be back in the shop in no time.

    Geez I’m late to this thread but I’m glad you are back home and starting the healing process. Just said a prayer for you and all the H.A.M.B. board for doing what they do best and that is take care of their own. Good luck and Godspeed from Indiana. Regards, Randy

    Great news, and like everyone's said, take it easy for a while.
    That said, is the 32 finished yet?

I did it this way hoping that i would be strong enough for these little projects soon. Im going to take it real easy. I have dodged death enough this year, progress can wait.

    Jim, my comment was meant to be a bit tongue and cheek as a tip of the hat to how fast you usually work, and how good your work is. I think most of us who have watched your work think you can turn anything into anything, and do it damn quick, and make it look damn good. You can take a bunch of time off, and still be faster than most of us. Take care.
     
  19. So happy to hear the surgery went well, now take it easy and don't push recovery, the car will be waiting on you when your ready. HRP

    Good to hear that you’re back home and on the mend. Remember that the pain will be temporary and will pass. It has no home with you. Take it easy and don’t rush. You’ll be fine in no time.
    Think of it as a vacation and use the time to plan your next move.

    Things fade with time. My zipper used to bring comments from ladies I was "entertaining" but after 3 years most of them don't even notice it now. :)

    Well, I gave you the rundown up to this point, now....you'll probably do what I and most of us did. You'll get tired of being an invalid, you'll get feeling pretty good, so you'll push yourself too hard one day cause you feel so good, DON'T do that. You'll pay, over extending yourself when you're not ready will drain you and set you back on the recovery train, your heart doc has seen it all, knows what to expect, do what they tell you.
    You can do this, my advice comes from the speed of your builds, you don't like to wait, but this is beyond your control. Take your time to get right, long term it will pay off big. LeRoy.
    Good luck.
     
  23. How did I miss this? I had a close one back in late 2016... coded while in triage at the local ER for chest pains, never expected that. Woke up 5 days later from an induced coma, 10 days total in the hospital. 2 more days and they would have killed me there. Triple bypass, funny that the 10" scar is now around 8.5"..

    I had a great recovery, did they offer a cardiac rehab? That was good for me. I was back to work in 3 months, did not touch a wrench until the 4th month after. It was winter anyway. I still have a slightly funky valve, had a stress test 2 weeks ago as a follow up. Nothing bad came out of it, some minor scarring. I don't take many pills, just BP and cholesterol stuff and that 81 mg aspirin.

    Good to see you doing well.

    One week into it, and im doing fine. Sitting around sucks, but thats ok. Im alive and im healing.
     
  26. Takes a while to get up and running again. My 1st full day home, I crapped myself on the way to the bathroom. They had me loaded up with laxatives at the hospital. By the 2nd day, I could feed the cats in the morning. I had a nurse that came in a couple of times, PT for 10 or 12 sessions. My little cat attacked the guy one morning, went after his hanging badge, it was funny.

    I'm just completing my first month of cardio rehab after having a stint installed, 3 more months to go. Lost a few pounds, getting in shape, feeling great, back to playing golf, told my wife I haven't felt this good in years!

    Enjoy the rest, then get back to it with a passion. If they offer rehab at the hospital, do it! It has given me a ton of confidence cause I push it there more than I do working out at home. Hell if it's going to go wrong you want to be there when it does. It's kind of like having the machine shop that built the motor do the burn in. :cool:

    God's speed on the recovery!

    I got a stent installed 12 years ago on a Friday and went back to work on Monday, went in for Dr's appointment the next Friday and they told me I could go back to work the next week. I told them I already had returned to work..........someone forgot to tell me that I wasn't cleared to go back just yet, luckily everything went well and I did my cardiac rehab as prescribed and still doing well to this day, heartwise at least.

    Man, i dont know how hard a stint is. But there is no going back to work after having the whole pulmonary region replaced with a cadaver, the aortic valve replaced with my own pulmonary, and a new arch made from weave. Its a job to walk 1000 ft in a day, and im a very active guy. This is going to be a long road.
