Hi,

Just thought I would check to see if anyone else here has had heart surgery or a Pericardectomy(Not sure I spelled that right), it's where they remove the sac around the heart. They removed mine because it was starting to harden around my heart causing it to not rest right, anyway was just wondering if anyone has had either of these as I am just wondering what to expect in the healing process, pains and such, if anyone has had this experience please let me know, I am almost 3 weeks post op now, I would be happy to answer any questions. The Condition I had was Constrictive pericarditis which is why they did the operation. Thanks in advance Daniel.

I haven't had anything like that, but I hope you're feeling better every day!

Thank you feel a lot better than I did prior to the surgery but still have a ways to go, didn't realize it takes this long to recover from heart surgery but hopefully everything will continue to improve.
