I had open heart surgery five weeks ago. Triple bypass. I'm 57 years old,,,,just a baby according to my surgeons nurse. Probably because most people who have the operation are older. One artery was 100% blocked. The reason I didn't have a heart attack is my body grew a bunch of small veins around the blockage to get blood to the heart. To me that's a miracle.
Being that I'm so "young" my recovery should be easier. I was in good shape, though overweight, before; that helps. I'm still having trouble losing weight.
My advice is... if you have symptoms of heart problems go directly to the emergency room and have it checked out.
