Still painful - left chest bones!

by Michael Fong
(Bangkok, Thailand)

Hi Everyone:

I am Michael Fong, aged 68 years young. I had triple bypass surgery 3 months and 22 days ago, keeping healthy by strictly observing my doctor's advice to avoid any risk. My problem is I still some chest pains! it is not the same chest pain before having bypass, but it is the pain of two bones on the left chest. How does this happen? How is it to be heeled? Or, do I have to go for another bypass surgery? My doctor has advised me not to pay any attention to this pain or take any medicine to heel this pain, but go on with my normal life, namely, exercises, fitness with weight lifting, normal sexuality. Can someone help me how and the way to heel two pieces of my left chest bones?

Been a year and a half since my triple CABG
by: Brian from NC

and I STILL feel weird stuff in my chest. I think part of it is that, well, it's just not natural to have that part of you cut open and walked around in. The rest of it, I think, is mental. So far, for the most part, I've been able to take your doctor's advice: Ignore it. Takes some work but I bet you can accomplish the same. Good luck and God bless.

Chest pain

It is normal for the chest to be sore at the sternum. Your sternum has to heal which can take a lot of time. My chest still hurts at times, and I had a quad bypass over a year ago. Hang in there, it will get better. But it's normal to still have pain. My sternum pain took about 4 months to return to almost pain free.
