After Surgery

After surgery, it's important to continue on your medications. The dual anti-platelet therapy is very important to be continued after that, and everyone should be prescribed cardiac rehab, as this will serve as this will certainly improve your exercise tolerance over time, as well as help to decrease your risk factors. Note that CABG is a temporary cure for this disease. However, there can be problems later with your graft, so it is important to still control your risk factors and to make sure that you still continue with good diet, good exercise, and take your medications as prescribed.
