It will take you approximately two months to recover from undergoing your CABG surgery. You should plan to be away from work, getting your full strength back, for six to eight weeks. Your surgeon will advise you on post-operative restrictions and when it’s safe to drive again. Participating in a cardiac rehabilitation program will be beneficial in your recovery. Make sure to ask about this before you are discharged from the hospital and make arrangements close to your home in advance.
CABG can relieve chest pain, prevent a heart attack, and improve the quality of your life, especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle.
