I have read about an alarming side-effect of OHS that seems to be rather scary, especially with me being a rather young person about to have my first heart surgery. I have read that at least half of those who undergo OHS have diminished brain function whether long or short-term, mainly because of the heart-lung machine, which can pump tiny bits of plastic and toxic chemicals into the body, blocking arteries in the brain. Has anyone had experiences with this or overcoming this? Do you know people this has happened to?
