Coronary Artery Bypass Reoperation (CABR)

Reoperative coronary artery bypass grafting or CABR is a surgical procedure, not part of interventional cardiology (angioplasty or stenting), but we try to help and post questions from patients on heart matters, even if unrelated to angioplasty.

• I had a cognitional fatal heart defect. My artery on the right side grew on the left side and was squished between my Pulmonary and Aorta. I did not have any health issues growing up other than loss of balance at times (Klutz) Prior to the surgery I found out I lack of oxygen to my brain and there was intermittent blood flow to the right side of my heart. Because of High Anxiety life situations, I had 4 Angina attacks. 3 weeks ago I had invasive CABR done under my right breast and a vein was used from my left leg. This was a new attachment and was not added to my defected one. I was in ICU for 4 days unable to get oxygen levels up and on a couple of occasion lost all air and passed out due to the tube (child size since they could not get an adult size down my throat). I have a high tolerance to pain killers and was waking up every two hours. It was horrible and I was not given anyway to communicate the pain, it was even worse when they would clean out the tube and I couldn't tell them to stop. This process needs much work, because I am deathly afraid of this ever happening again. Can I now live a normal life since it was not blockage or heart damage?
