Hi Charlie thanks for your message on my guest book. I tried to respond to your note but it came out on my guest book as a separate entry. Sorry. It is very windy here in NSW how is it in Melbourne? All the best for your heart health and general health.

Hi Charlie Browne! I am very interested in your post about the lack of balance and other probs. I am experiencing the lack of balance and was told by GP that it is degenerative and I thought that sounded reasonable as I am 72 years! But your info gives me a different slant on things. I will see my surgeon this afternoon and discuss with him! Sending wishes from a fellow Aussie!!
Thanks Charlies, My bumper sticker I made fro myself says "GOD and Cleveland Clinic heal my heart" - Surrounding myself with GOD and positive affirmations. I'm keeping your information, just in case I need it.
were you in good health going into this srugery? I think alot depends on how healthy and strong a person is going into the surgery - like smokers, or overweight, etc make the risk for complications higher? I know there are things that happen in spite of going in surgery with everything stacked in your favor, but I also believe (and data shows) that the hospital and the doctor plays a very major part in success, as much as if not more than being a high risk case.

Thanks for sharing, Charlie Browne (?). There's so much that is a puzzle. Like Post Perfusion Syndrome, or, as it is sometimes called "Pump Head", which could explain some of what you described...such as the speech. Who knows all this for sure. But, I have an opinion, which is...there are so many professionals doing these procedures using various techniques. These professionals and their tems do not all have the same levels of experience and same level of insight, and, we the patients do not always get the benefit of the best knowledge and techniques.
