As you prepare to leave the hospital, your medical team will give you
many instructions about how to care for yourself. You may want to have a folder
or binder to keep this information organized. Many of the hospital staff
members who have helped you recover during your hospital stay may not be
available when you are at home. Therefore, it is very important that you pay
close attention to all the instructions that they give you.
Your hospital stay is only the beginning of your recovery from CABG
surgery. In the weeks that follow, you will continue to work back to the life
you were leading before your surgery.
