A while ago I was discharged from cardiac rehab. Based on my level of exercise I have got up to at the gym.
Today was the surgical follow-up appointment. ECG, etc. and I was discharged. No limit on what exercise I do.. no limit on what weight I can lift smiley - evilgrinsmiley - biggrin OK, it will still take some months for the chest muscles to rejoin the sturnum, but once they do I can train above the weight limit of 20KG, at last..

Walked a bit over 3.2 miles yesturday, easily. Popped into gym, to say hi to people and show I AM still alive.
Slept a good 5 hours. Very tired today, and in more pain. More pain I expected, as nerves grow back and the bone remodels.
Oedema on legs and feet virtually gone.
The hydrocortisone gel has cleared the rash on my legs.

A good indication of just how much repair and regrowth is happening, is how hungry I AM! Eating about double normal.

10 days since surgery. Walked 2 miles. Including a walk to the pub, soft drink thanks to medications.
Cooked dinner after walking home..

This level of walking, without symptoms, i.e breathlessness, pain, palpitations, etc, is aim for 6 weeks post hospital discharge. I am, what, 5 days post hospital discharge...

Being so very fit before surgery makes this possible..

One week..

Until my operation.. less actually, as it's gone midnight.
If it goes swimmingly I may be conscious by now, but probably still on mechanical ventilation..
Still relaxed by it all, just been to the pub.. whatever happens happens..
