Interesting! And re incisions - no, I think through the neck - central line, maybe? But I also had a vein removed from my leg (minimally invasive cuts) so that was enough down there. Did you ask why they went that way?
Did you have a bypass too? They found that my LAD is 50-60% occluded. So while it was not worth to do a bypass on its own I guess they figured to do it while in the neighborhood. They will be using a vein from the chest.

Yes, but it was my marginal obtuse 1 artery, not a major one. They used a vein from my leg. And...yes, they. might as well fix it while in there. Sounds like you have a great attitude!!!
