Get Well Soon
Helping you to make a speedy recovery after surgery to bypass a damaged blood vessel that supplies blood to the heart.
The internet’s a great thing – anything you want to know is there for you at the click of a mouse but, do be careful about the way you use it when it comes to getting information about your health. It’s hard to know which sites to trust, and none of them can tell you anything that’s specific to your individual medical needs.
If you do want to know more about your operation, recovery or return to work, here is a list of trusted websites that offer safe, sensible, useful information:
- Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery
Useful information on CABG in the ‘Patient Information’ section
- British Heart Foundation
A wealth of useful information for anyone living with a heart condition, particularly the booklet ‘Returning to Work: A heart Condition’ (HIS 21).
- NHS Stop Smoking Service
- NHS Choices
- Department for Work and Pensions
- DVLA - Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency
