Kaiser for Bypass

In response to 143822: Kaiser for me, too, posted by Sherry B on Saturday, 29 February 2020, at 6:09 p.m.

Sherry, I had a quadruple at Kaiser Honolulu (actually they would not have let me fly to the mainland). I had a heart stress test and they immediately admitted me and prepped for a surgery a couple days later. They thought a triple bypass but once they got in they did a quadruple so they didn't have to go back later. Seems my lung capacity was very good and I had stopped smoking many decades earlier. The graft artery from my leg was in good shape.

I had a very good doctor. I asked and he said he did two of these a day, 5 days a week for many many years and never lost a patient.

Care at Honolulu was great and I was out a few days after surgery.
