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.

When can work usually be resumed? When do you start feeling reasonably normal again? Any comments would be appreciated. Meant back to work. I am a Male in my fifties. I work as a representative, driving around and calling on clients, and I do not smoke or drink. Used to smoke, but not for last 5 years.
