It's more to do with cutting the risk of infection plus you're better off at home. Neat scar though.

Can't you get them to do a nice jagged scar, claim it's a nip from a great white?

Best of luck for a speedy recovery. Cheers.

And in a few years, when a young filly is running her fingers over the scar, wondering what happened, you can recount the tale of 'remember those urban myth stories about some chap waking up in a bath of ice in some hotel in Thailand, minus a kidney? Well it's true!' you can say. Even better you can say 'the buggers took my heart too!'

Good news PT, glad you're on the mend. Apart from being sore, how do you feel? Relieved no doubt, but any different feelings from within?!

Good luck mate.

Yes I am back home, well staying with my Gran for a few months as I'm not allowed to be by myself until the sternum has healed.

Feeling very painful all over and keep blacking/greying out, not nice at all. Still atleast I managed to et something today, first time in over a week so I must be improving a little!

It was my birthday on tuesday which was a bit crap as I kept throwing up and felt very light headed all day, but glad to be home in the cotswolds, at least its very peaceful here smile

Cotswolds you say... maybe a run up the A46 or Fosse Way is in order when you're feeling more yourself? Something to look forward to, eh? driving

yikes Just read this thread, and the other you posted in June. Good to hear your on the mend. I can't imagine what it must've been like going throught what you have at your age.

I'm fortunate in that I've never had an op. Until I read details of your op, i'd never even thought what it would be like and seeing your scar brings it home a bit.

I have a mate who has had a few heart ops. I think he was born with a hole, so had an op on that and he too has a massive scar down his chest.

After reading your thread from June, I don't think I saw what happened when you were younger or what your 'underlying condition' was...

Get well soon fella.
