I was supposed to see my surgeon on Thursday for a review – it’s now six weeks since I came out of hospital. Unfortunately he was stuck in Turkey because of the ash cloud. I've now had three continuous days of really long walks in the sunshine – not particularly fast and I have to sit down every so often but there’s no doubt I’m a lot fitter than when I went in for the by-pass. After months of going dead slow and stop because of angina it’s great to be able to wander around at will. There are a few scars still to heal, one or two minor complications and a few weeks to go before I can lift heavy stuff or do the Twist but I’m delighted at how quickly I’ve recovered. A triple by-pass is not pleasant but anyone suffering from angina who gets told a by-pass will cure it should take the chance – it’s a whole new lease of life.
And can I take this opportunity to say thanks again for all your good wishes. Hopefully you'll hear no more about it...
