Open-heart surgery is any type of surgery where the chest is cut open and surgery is performed on the muscles .

Open-heart surgery is any type of surgery where the chest is cut open and surgery is performed on the muscles, valves, or arteries of the heart. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the most common type of heart surgery done on adults. During this surgery, a healthy artery or vein is grafted (attached) to a blocked coronary artery. Sometimes sternal plating is done for people at high risk, such as those who’ve had multiple surgeries or people of advanced age. Sternal plating is when the breastbone is rejoined with small titanium plates after the surgery. What are the risks of open-heart surgery?

I have to agree with the other's opinions that this is a totally misleading guide to OHS. The author continued suffering from an already diagnosed depression not necesarily exacerbated by his surgery. This should in no way be read by someone facing OHS. Just the author's account of his excruciating pain is enough to scare someone away from needed treatment. Don't know where he had his surgery, but this just is not the way it really is. Seemed like he had a grudge toward his former employer, and carried this theme throughout his book for not diagnosing him sooner.

This book is not a Guide in the sense of offering objective guidelines for the process of getting through -- and recovering from -- open heart-surgery. As an open-heart surgery survivor and thriver (summer 2003), in my opinion the book is a dismal account of one man's unique experience exacerbated by depressive illness that he was battling at least a year before his surgery. My concern is that his account is so negative as to dissuade a heart patient from chosing bypass surgery when indicated. That would be regrettable. Having talked to numerous open-heart surgery patients, clearly the majority of us benefit enormously from the miracle of open-heart operations.

I really enjoyed the honesty of the content in which the author revealed to his readers, as he gives a first hand account of his journey through the somewhat unknown. I'm sure this will be a great insight to those facing such a journey and my hope is they gain the encouragement, and the empowerment from the authors words. May it be a blessing!

I am a woman, and 1 year ago had triple By-Pass Open Heart Surgery....this book was definitely not targeted towards women....such a difference!!!!!! Your depression prior and after and the depressing book is awful...financially good for you but not very informative.
