It seems that the road to recovery for open heart surgery for me is a long one. But I have been blessed for that journey. It appears as though I have an unusual pain tolerance for open heart surgery. I've had to take no pain medication at all! I'm blown away by this lack of pain.
My biggest problem is that I don't fall asleep at night. This may not be a problem for me however, because I get plenty of naps during the day.
I went to visit my cardiac surgeon this morning, and asked him how he cut open my chest? "It's easy", he told me. "Power tools!"
