I am having an umbrella to repair a hole in the heart. It will go both on the left and right atrium and closed together.
He stated I will be able to go back to work if I feel like it within a few days.

Anyone have this procedure done and how should I expect recovery time? Is it realistic to return to work in a couple days?
Were hoping the catheter procedure will do it to it.
thanks, joe
