Ever since I was diagnosed with a double heart valve regurgitation (specifically my mitral and aorta have gone belly up), I have been preparing myself for that dreaded open heart surgery that the cardiologists say I must have. I have never been through anything more traumatic because I have so much still to do and my children need me, not forgetting my family and so many others who depend on me. It is hard. Not that open heart surgery is a dangerous thing but you just never know. I am already blessed that I have been able to live a normal life due to Izumio and Super Lutein that help me regain my energy levels but anything can go wrong still during an open heart surgery. When I was told that I could die in my sleep due to the lack of oxygen, I was initially terrified but now with Izumio and Super Lutein, I no longer fear that. What I fear is something going wrong during Open Heart Surgery. Like an infection. Or an emergency during the surgery.
I have joined a heart surgery support group on Facebook and it has given me an insight to a lot of information. Of course a lot of these patients are from abroad so I don’t get to see what the medical support is like here locally but at least I know what to expect if I were to have surgery abroad and can ensure that Doctors do the same over here. Maybe. Or maybe I won’t bother even having it here!
I have been watching youtube videos on open heart surgery too. People actually die from these surgeries and thereafter if surgery is unsuccessful. But I am praying that I am one of the 70% of successful patients. However I know that I am a high risk patient too because of so many reasons.
I am urging you from one human being to another, preventive health care is way too low in your priority scale, and if you do not want to end up like me, please take action TODAY. Do not say I did not warn you. Just yesterday, my Dad said he was fine and healthy and does not need anything more. I dreaded it when he said that because so far, many of those who have said that to me, got hit with terminal cancer or leukaemia. Like WTF!!!! Is it a bad omen or what??? I’m not kidding.
An open heart surgery involves slicing your chest with a sharp scalpel for about a foot long, maybe less if you have a smaller heart or are small sized, then using an electric saw to saw open your rib cage. They then get a metal contraption to open your ribcage up on both sides like a double door opening, and start connecting your heart to the heart lung machine which will be your ‘fake heart’ for the next few hours till the surgeons are done repairing your heart. Anything can go wrong from then till when it is over:-
2. Stroke or Heart Attack
3. Irregular Heart Beats
4. Lung or Kidney failure
5. Blood clots, blood loss
6. Breathing problems, brain problems, chest problems
7. You just die……for whatever reason.
Scary right?????????? WTF!!!!!!! I am not ready to die!!!! Previously, I was but now I realised that so many people depend on me that I simply cannot. Urgh. But at the end of the day, I suppose I have to let God do His work.
Here, if you are brave and can login to youtube, you can have a sneak peak of the start of an open heart surgery.**************************************************************************
