    Hi Amanda,

    Isn't it a relief to know the hardest part is over and now you just have to heal up over time. Will you eventually be doing any cardiac rehab???

    I had an ablation at the end of May and I've been working frequently but moderately at my Health Club.

Being almost 3 weeks into recovery now I can tell you that you are going to feel even much better in a week or so. I am sore still but each day I am getting better. Great to here you are doing well, keep it up.

                  I have just had my myectomy on the 12.10.12. I came out of hospital yesterday. I am in London UK. I dont think they do it that often here. I came home two weeks after the op and had to go back in again, something wrong with the heartbeat and got very swollen. I wondered about your recovery and how you are feeling now. Did you have it as open heart surgery like I did and do you have any problems with you breast bone? Mine keeps feeling like its slipping and clunking. Is that normal? Did you have that?
