I am feeling so much better after 3 nights at home! Sleep gets easier each night. I am using Tylenol PM to help get it started.
The "washing machine spin cycle/paint can mixer" sensation went away about a day a go. The beta blockers may have helped?...or my heart is getting in-tune with the new parts? Also getting more and more used to the ticking sound.
Pain is manageable, especially in my sternum. I remember this being much worse after my last surgery, 37 years ago. I am only taking Tylenol several times per day.
Appetite has returned.
Various surgical wounds are healing.
My focus will be on expanding my lung capacity and endurance.
