3-4-5 hours...put it takes a long time to get ready for it!! the Nurses woke me up at 6am to get ready! I was already in the Hospital for 2 days prior. They worked on me for 3 and a half hours to get ready....then at 10:35 am they put me under.....its took 4 hours....

Hi my father in law is going in for by pass surgery. He is in Florida and we are in Michigan. My husband is flying down as soon as we have more information about a surgery date. My husband is concerned as far as how long rehab is after such a surgery? What is a safe amount of time where he could be alone? Our step mother passed away a couple years ago, so he is alone down there right now. We just want to make sure he is safe as possible. Any information would be helpful, thank you.

Hello. I had Da Vinci robotic coronary bypass surgery in April, at which time they harvested my left mammory artery. How long will my breast be numb and tender? I ve also had back discomfort on my left side for about 2 weeks now. I had an ultrasound yesterday of my abdomen and pelvis area and the only thing that showed was 2 fibroids on my uterus. I m currently taking Lipitor.
