Bushy, looks like you and me, both, got to spend our holidays "under the weather". Hope you a speedy recovery and a bright future. I have 2 stents, myself, and really began to feel better in a very short time. I'm sure you will be placed on blood thinners and blood pressure medicine, as I was, and these take some getting used too. You will have to be careful and watch out for cuts as you will bleed very easily. Also, if you develope a cough, as I did, it could be related to your blood pressure medicine. After taking the medicine that was prescribed by my doctor I discovered that the "ACE Inhibiters" found in that particular brand caused me to cough. I had the doctor change my prescription and the cough went away.
PS, with my recent heart stent and kidney cancer surgury I have been told to not anticipate going back to work. I still am facing treatment for "Lymph Nodes and Nodules"' For someone who has worked hard all their life this is a very tough pill to swallow. Through work, I had a Long Term Disability Insurance policy that will pay me 60% of my salary. I have also had to sign up on Social Security Disability.
This is not something I wanted to do but I guess I'm lucky that I had the insurance policy and Social Security available for me.
