Hi, My father had a open heart surgery a few weeks ago and is well into the recovery. There is a small pocket of puss accumulation at the center of the chest along the area which was opened for the surgery. He has developed fever overnight and he feels some body pains. What should we do now? We are far away from our surgeon in bangalore and reside in Tirupati.

Hi. My mom had open heart surgery 6 weeks ago. She went to physical therapy today and then grocery shopping. While she was at the store she felt faint and sick to her stomach. She said she has been dry heaving. Do you think her blood sugar dropped or something else?

My dad had open heart surgery in July of this year.. He had a quadruple bypass and half surgery.. He just had his 12 week check up and his heart is now functioning at 20-25 percent. What would you say his life expectancy is. He is having a defibrillator put in also.
