My mom needs triple bypass surgery. I am so scared.

My Dad had open heart surgery 20 years ago, the same surgeon that will be doing my Moms. Dad did not make it, he had an anarysm that ruptured and killed him. It is just so scary, Mom having open heart surgery 20 years later with the same surgeon. I am so scared.

dont worry, whenever a patient dies a panel looks over the case and judges what the surgeon did in surgery and if he were to found to have made any mistakes, he wouldnt have a license anymore. there is always a risk in surgery and an aneurysm isnt too uncommon. still, the chances of her being treated far outweigh the risks
