Your Heart Surgery Journey – Recovering at Home (Royal Columbian Hospital) [English] Permalink Public

Information in this book is intended as a reference for you and your family and as a guide for the next 6 to 8 weeks and beyond. The first 6 to 8 weeks after heart surgery are usually the most difficult. You might recover quite quickly if you were in good health before your surgery. However, your recovery could be slower if you were very sick before surgery or if you had a complication after surgery. (English) Colour
