Good luck! I had open heart surgery (aortic valve replacement) in 2016 and that recovery wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Worst part was learning to stand up using my abs and legs rather than pushing myself up with my arms as I was in the habit of doing, but as you know by now that’s a big no-no when you’ve had your sternum opened.

How long were you in ICU?

Wow that’s crazy! I should have only been in there 2-3 days but was in icu more like 8-9 days :(

Not OP but it’s just for a couple of months until your sternum heals
