I will be prepping my Swing for a few months of storage here in Hawaii. Just learned that I will be needing heart bypass surgery soon. Looks like I have three blockages. Couldn't last four minutes on the stress test. Good thing my wife is also retired.
I know that recovery is different for everyone, and for those whom went through the process, how long did it take you before your doctor released you to ride again?

Easyrider
Thoughts & prayers are with you for this,(let us know when you are admitted) though it's a pretty routine thing nowadays.
As for getting back in the saddle my mate had similar following two heart attacks (first shouldve killed him as he ignored it) & within 6 weeks flew put with us to Malta and did a tour. Hardest part for him (as there where diabetes complications) was balancing his meds (won't go into detail in case folk are eating when reading) bit you can imagine a strong dose of alien chemicals in the body has on the bowel.

Scootypuff Snr,
Thanks for your response. I too have diabetes and so far I am only on pills. How long did it take your mate to resume normal activities?

Believe it or not light work load (painter & decorater) within 8 weeks as he's self employed so no entitlement to any benefits.
But obviously no heavy lifting (ladders/scaffold)
Rode out with him this Tuesday & you'd never known he'd been ill if not met before.

Choose your Dr's wisely----I have lived thru heart attack and stroke, now type 2 diabetic, maybe some Agent Orange----but lived thru it and am fine....but I see Internal Med Dr....they can keep you alive---my experience, Heart people tend to over prescribe.---In addition to Internal Med Dr I have VA GP Dr watch me-----According to my downtown Dr, VA blood tests are the best and very comprehensive.----next birthday I will be 80 and feel fine and am active---attitude has a lot to do with it-----and riding bikes/scooters lots of miles. Good luck----get up and be active as soon as you can.

Best wishes. The indicator for when you can get back on your bike should be when the hospital/doctor indicates that you should begin physical therapy. My wife had heart work done and she was given a solid physical therapy program soon after. Your return to riding should coincide with initiation of that program.

Easyrider,

I was scrolling down this thread with my comments in mind ... then I read John's reply.  His comment about attitude is exactly what  my comment is.  A positive attitude goes a long way to speeding recovery.  Also give yourself time to heal.  The bike will be ready for you when you are ready.  Live to your "name" ... easyrider.

Looking forward to hearing how great your first ride was after this bump in the road of your life is all sorted out.

e mālie,
Mike

Thanks ALL for your thoughts. I have my first visit with the surgeon tomorrow morning. Really thinking about my mortality. Never thought that it would happen to me. Went to the gym at least twice a week. Walked four miles a week. Do a lot of yard work around the house.
Once again a big mahalo!

Prayers and Wishes to you Easyrider!
Heart bypass and diabetes both. I guess I don't have anything to complain about.
I met a man in his 30s at the nursing home where a friend of mine was recovering from a heart attack. He has brittle bone disease, kidney failure and needs a liver. I really have nothing to complain about!

Good luck to you with the visit hoping perhaps you won't need as much work as anticipated, surgeons can do some amazing things these days.

Easyrider, easy does it when your ticker is involved. Cardiac arteries can be replaced by veins frm inside the chest wall. Less or no pain, leg vein harvesting requires longer recovery and pain from the leg surgery. Best I can tell you is to watch it, whatever it is: watch it with a lot of detachment, whatever it is. Best of luck.

Jay.

Thanks all. A big MAHALO for all your thoughts. Met with the cardiac surgeon this morning. We scheduled the surgery for this Thursday at 8:30am. According to the doctor, I need to have a triple bypass, maybe quadruple if the last vein is large enough. I should be out of ICU by Saturday. Really makes me think about my mortality. Never thought that this could happen to me.
