Just so you all understand, I had interesting feedback of the op recently, a younger colleague of mine had the operation last March, the operation is now routine!!!! But VERY invasive, it will take Gunda a while to recover, pain wise the chest work is apparently less painful than the leg where they take the Arteries from, but mentally it is very challenging, he will need support and meds, the head goes a bit off the scale when the heart is off line and the blood being circulated outside the body by peristatal pumps, it takes the grey matter some time to recalibrate and serious depression is very common post op. So although he will physically be 100% better the head may take a while.  8)

Here's wishing you a speedy recovery and everything of the best going forward, Peter.
Take heed a Welsh's words and pay attention to the head recovering with the body. Coming to terms with you own mortality does play with your mind. Depression is a bitch - get expert help and don't try to 'go it alone'. Also remember that there is a great community of WD's rooting for you.
Sterkte!

It is also the anaesthetics that cause a lot of truama. It took my father about 9 months to recover from deep surgery anaesthetics.
