I would not fly for a while after heart surgery, I am sure he is on plenty of blood thinners and other great meds that already puts him at risks for too many things. then again, you only live once, right???? :)

OK.a little research for you to chew on..and if you ain't comfortable up in the wild blue yonder, there's always Greyhound or Amtrak...or one of these good ol' boys could wind up one of their 'tricked-out' F 350's or Ram Hemis and come get your ***..LOL

"Your own doctor is the best judge of your Cardiac health and may want you to perform treadmill or stress tests to gauge your fitness. But, as a general rule, the American Academy of Family Physicians suggests that patients who have had heart surgery -- such as coronary angioplasty or coronary artery bypass grafting -- wait at least two weeks before flying.
As long as there are no post operative complications, patients who have recovered from these surgeries are considered low risk. However, doctors suggest the two week wait because of the risks associated with exposure to decreased atmospheric pressure, found in commercial jetliners, for patients who have undergone any type of chest surgery."

hi guys
you are truly just to much.
i have no problems coming to texas believe me, i do have a couple things to consider,sep is a very busy time for us at work, the university of fla is in session and we get busy and asking for time off is tricky.
however i might not have a job to worry about, i dont want to sound in poor health because i am doing fine at this point.
i go back to the heart doc on thur of this week, i am having bouts of fatiuge that is a real pain where the sun never shines, it causes me to have breathing problems and the doc said its normal, it takes some people longer to shake than others, if i have to put off going back to work they might just tell me to go ahead and build rods, cause they need a meat cutter not a invilid:frown:
but i always look for the worst, then when i get the good its all good.
so let me say that as soon as i can see where this fatigue thing is going then i will give you guys an answer, but if there is any way i can pull it off i will take jim up on his offer:) jim is good stuff"more grease jim"
thanks to my many friends in texas and i will come home if at all possible.

I love my beautiful BillyStix spinning rod, and I'd love to give old BillyStix a big HUG for making it for me. It caught the big old flounder that's in my avatar.

When you're up to it, Billy, and not one day before!

Billy

Just a word from my experience. Following my surgery (tripple), I also extreme tiredness. Checked my blood pressure, it was good. Check my pulse, it was something like 48-50.

Called the doctor, he asked how much Atenenol I was still on. When I answered his question, he immediately instructed me to cut dosage in half. That really did the trick. Have since cut it in half again.

It seems I was still on the dosage prescribed immediately after surgery. Should have be told to reduce dosage when I left the hospital.
