    91 year old - open heart surgery!

    My 91 year old father in law has to decide whether to go ahead with a triple bypass open heart surgery procedure (and replacement aortic valve). The surgeon is prepared to do the surgery because father in law is biologically a younger age apart from his heart problems. Does anyone have any experience of this type of surgery in older patients and any thoughts/advice to share? It is a massive decision. Thank you.

    I had a triple bypass at age 52, I know people in their 80's who have had this surgery and recovered quite well.
    The surgeon must think your father in law is capable of a good recovery otherwise he wouldn't even consider doing the surgery.

    I wish him all the best.
