I think the surgery is just two hour to three hours. it is done by team of doctors. you have to stay for one week or so in the hospital. All the best I suggest you go for surgery with good surgeon as suggested by Dharmveer

To find out about a coronary artery disease is a Thallium test better or an angiogram to find best results? Can a doctor or any medical person explain this to me My Cardiologist did my Angiogram and advised for a Surgery of CAD , Now the Surgeon before deciding to go for a surgery he want me to have a Thallium test ( Profusion Scan ) . What does this mean , is the Surgeon not sure about the Advice of the Cardiologist - or does he wants to sort out further things when he does the Surgery . Can anyone give further advice and explaination
My fiance has coranary artery disease. Has had quadruple bi-pass surgery. Three stents inserted with one failure and replaced. He is a white 50 year old. High blood pressure. Also, needs knee joint replacement, but they keep discouraging him from having the surgery. He keeps telling me he is not going to live long and I need to be prepared for this. His heart surgery was in 2007. Please give me an average life expectancy of people who have been through what he has. It s uncomfortable talking to him about it. I m going to be married to him soon, I need answers. Thank you Kelli
My father age 74 undergone heart bypass surgery in Godbole heart hospital thane on 2nd Jan 2011. He used to complain chest pains and gases in the night in the month of December and diagonised with heart blockages. After heart surgery he was discharged from hospital after successful operation and went to Andheri at my brother s place. At that time he had 101 fever and started having diarhea for so many times that he could not walk. He didnt want to have water or any food at that time. We admitted in Andheri hospital, and found that he is having infection with WBC went as much as 35K, Dr treated him with antibiotics and also dialysis since his urine output reduced due to dehydration. After 7 days his diarhea stopped, urine output increased and WBC count came to 10K. Again after 2 days he startted having diarhea with 100 fever, then dr consulted gastroentologist. He was of the opinion that this is due to antibiotic effect. Still my father had the diarhea and could not walk. So dr. Suggested colonoscopy. Blood culture, stool culture came negative. Just checking 1 what could be the reason of this? Anything related to operation? Infection? 2 He was very active before operation and sometimes had constipation 3 Will he be able bare colonoscopy and will it help

Hello, I am a 39 year old female. I received my second ever kenalog shot for allergies over a week ago. The one previous was a year prior to that. In the past 3 days I have been experiencing heart palpitaions the entire day and night. I have had palpiations for years now, but only once in a while. The palpitions I am now experiencing are continuous. I had been tested about five years ago and was told I had tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation. Several years later a different doctor sent me for testing and it showed no regurgitation. It doesnt make sense to me. My question is do you think it is possible the palpitations are caused by the kenalog? I was put back on Singulair as well but stopped taking it to see if that was the culprit. I am uneasy with this feeling and it is stressing me out more so worrying about it. Thank you in advance.
My 89 year old father just had a triple bypass and valve replacement. He lost kidney function after the surgery. They are now wanting him to go to a long term acute center, I m guessing because his heart rate registers low in the upper 40 s to mid 50 s. how long can I expect him to last on dialysis
