Medical Park Cardiology Hospital Director, Head of Cardiovascular Surgery Department. Dr. Hüseyin Okutan states that patients who should have coronary bypass surgery should be divided into two groups. "This patient group has time to get detailed information about the proposed surgery and select the center where the surgery will be performed, and therefore the physician to be operated on," said the first group of patients with cardiac angiography due to complaints. Explaining that the second group of patients were those who were admitted to the hospital with a suddenly developing heart attack and were treated immediately.
Dr. Hüseyin Okutan said, “When coronary bypass surgery is recommended after cardiac angiography for these patients, the patient and family have a more limited time to think and decide. It is very important for the patient and the family to prepare for surgery, to be aware of the process, to return the patient to his former life after surgery. ” The patient is well prepared for the surgery as a psychologist. Dr. Hüseyin Okutan said: “A patient with this chance will be better prepared psychologically for the operation. In addition, it should be clarified about when the patient can walk in the post-operative period, whether there will be a restriction in physical activity, and whether there will be a change in lifestyle. The operation of the patient, whose surgery is recommended, can vary from a few hours to a few days. Since this period is different for each patient, this period should be used correctly. Patients who do not have any additional problems are carried out within the first 24 hours after surgery and begin to be fed orally. Often the patient is taken to the room from the intensive care unit within a day or two. The patient, who can move more freely in his room, is discharged home on the 5th day when there is no additional problem. ” 2 TIMES PER YEAR CONTROL Stating the patient's 6-week period after surgery as the preparation period for resting and returning to his routine life.
Dr. Hüseyin Okutan said, “In this period, heavy exercises and physical activities that will harm wound healing are not recommended. Postoperative medical checks can be done in the 1st week, 2nd week, 1st month, 3rd month and 6th month, depending on the physician's will. In patients who have had coronary bypass surgery, it is appropriate to perform a check at least twice a year, even if everything goes well. In our next meeting, we will discuss the daily life, changes in our lifestyle, and the exercise plan after coronary bypass surgery. ”
