I had surgery two months ago because of an aortic dissection that caused 3 strokes. They replaced the artery from the aorta to the neck and a heart valve. I am glad to be here because 4 weeks on I would have been abroad on holiday and then might not be here. I will be off until at least Christmas but I'm getting better all the time. Cheers, Nick.
Blimey Nick, sounds like you've had a total rebuild in the heart section !! Glad it went well - major heart surgery is quite routine nowadays (thank goodness My Mum had a heart valve done when she was 52 - she's 83 now and still going strong. Take it easy and get back to full fitness soon
