Re: My Father is scheduled for Triple Bypass Surgery on 9/21/05

Hello gassone, I am 53 and had bypass surgery in Sept 2003. My father- in- law
turned 75 this past January. He had quad bypass surgery in June this year. He has parkinsons , diabetes and his kidneys only function at 38%. He did much much better than I did with the bypass. I can tell you my cardiac thorasic surgeon and my cardiologist told me that for some reason older people do much better than people that were my age. I don't know why. I know many people in mid 70 range who have had bypass sx and been fine. It is a rough surgery. But consider how many of these have been performed, the procedure is pretty common these days. I will say a prayer for your dad, I am sure he will be just fine.
