My husband is scheduled for another bypass surgery because he has a blockage.He had his first bypass 14 years ago.He is 55, diabetic,somewhat overweight,kidney transplant recipient,and takes quite a few meds.I am really concerned about this and scared.Is there any other procedure or something else that could be done.Ive heard a lot of negative things about a 2nd surgery and that it is more complicated.
Has anyone out there had a 2nd bypass,and were there any problems?

Dear Pat,

Welcome to HealingWell, this is Kitt.

I am sorry to hear your husband is in need of another surgery.  I assume he is not a candidate for a coronary angioplasty ?

There is always risk with  any cardiac surgery but your husband sounds like he has done well with his cardiac status and tolerated his kidney transplant so he has a lot of history of good outcomes.

Please do not hesitiate to ask for a second medical opinion if you have fears that this is not the right procedure for your husband.

I wish you peace and again a warm welcome to HW.
