Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I be in the hospital?

The average length of stay of our cardiac surgery patients is 5-7 days. Your actual length of stay may vary depending on your vital signs, lab work, dietary, and activity.

What can I do to ease back into my daily routine?

You'll likely be anxious to get back to your daily routine after heart surgery, but you must be patient and allow your body to heal and recover. Here are a few steps to follow to enable better recovery:

  • Follow your health provider’s recommendations: This is particularly important for resuming activities such as lifting heavy objects and driving.
  • Listen to your body: If you tire easily or feel pressure or pain during an activity, stop. Pushing yourself too hard increases the risk of injury or complications.
  • Lifestyle: Eating a heart-healthy diet, being active, reducing your stress, getting enough sleep and avoiding smoking and alcohol, are all important lifestyle choices that will help you heal and get back to your daily routine.

What diagnostic tests can I expect before a CABG procedure?

Your doctor might order several tests before your CABG procedure. These may include blood tests, EKG, echocardiogram, chest x-ray, cardiac catheterization, and angiography.
