This book has helped over 47,000 patients and caregivers from diagnosis to recovery.
I also feel the heat more (literally as a tightening in my chest) and it zaps my energy.
Depression can manifest itself as anger. Lots of emotion to process.
I hear you, Michael. Three months is still very very early. Wishing you some peace in the months to come.
I also think that cardiac rehab is a good place, and especially because of the other patients you find there. Hearing their stories was good for me.
I also recommend that you make sure your medical team, including your primary care doc, are aware of your symptoms. Don't make the assumption everything is related to your heart surgery. We're people and are subject to other conditions, simultaneously. There may be a simple resolution.
I'm glad that you're still going to rehab - I'm 7 1/2 months post-op and I still go, too! I also love the interaction with the other patients and the activity. Keep looking ahead - your recovery is just in the distance, but you will get there. Stay positive even on the tough days. Soon, the good ones will be more frequent.
It will get better..
