Recovery process after a cardiac bypass surgery
Posted on Feb 04, 2016
Heart bypass surgery recovery is the period that immediately follows an intensive cardiac bypass procedure. While the operation itself is the most important determinant for how well a patient will fare afterwards, the recovery period is also a very important phase that has to be handled with care and caution. Here are the things that you can expect to encounter during the heart bypass surgery recovery period and how to deal with them to make sure the health of the patient is given the priority and care that they truly deserve.

  • The need for bed rest and minimization of stress: This period may take anywhere from a week to four weeks depending on the health of the patient before the surgery and how the surgery goes. The loss of blood from the procedure will mean that the body is anaemic and this will cause the patient to tire easily during the initial days of bypass recovery period, so bed rest is compulsory and important.
  • Infection prevention: Heart bypass is a major procedure requiring a number of incisions and stitches. The risk of infection is very real and proper wound care is absolutely essential to ensure complete recovery. For this, the services of a private nurse may be necessary to ensure that the wound is regularly cleaned, the gauge regularly replaced, and the medication regularly administered to promote healing in the shortest possible time.
  • Heart health: The heart of the patient should not be subjected to any extra physical work early on in the heart bypass surgery recovery period. The heart will not be strong enough to handle the increased flow of blood and the increased heart rate during this period. Thus, absolute care must be taken to manage the patient's condition, never allowing them to do much physical exertion until about 3 to 4 weeks after the surgery.
  • Physical exercise: Once all the incisions have properly healed, it is time to re-condition the heart so it can deal with the normal stresses of everyday living. To do this, patients should have regular walking exercises out on the street or on a treadmill. However, the level of physical intensity should be kept at a minimum at first and then only gradually increased as the patient gains more physical strength. It is very important to watch the routine to be certain exercise is done but kept within reasonable boundaries.
  • Resuming your regular routine: The last phase of a cardiac bypass surgery recovery is when patients are about to get back to work or resume their day-to-day activities. This will take about 6 to 8 weeks after surgery and will need a cardiologist's clearance to determine if the patient's health is sufficient for his or her profession. A thorough assessment and review of the bypass recovery phase will be done to ensure that the patient went through the typical phases of recovery before he or she can resume living his or her normal routines.

Heart bypass surgery recovery should not be taken lightly. It is crucial for complete healing and recovery. Patients and family members alike would be wise to follow the recommended steps to ensure no complications develop following the cardiac bypass procedure.
