It takes about 90 days for you to recover. You have to take medication for chest pain, and your mood is down over the first few weeks, but you were told to expect that, so you are not too worried. During your post-operative evaluation, your chest pain is completely gone and your quality of life score is three times higher than before surgery. You never realized what a big effect angina was having on you. Now you can enjoy your walks and day-to-day activities like getting groceries without pain or worry.
Following your treatment, your care team will monitor your recovery and evaluate the outcomes, including your ability to perform daily activities, pain level, quality of life, mental health and other factors. Not only will these be used to ensure that you have personally achieved a successful outcome, but your treatment outcomes will help shape the treatment course for future patients like you.
