Today was my three-week anniversary of being discharged following my second ASD closure and cyromaze ablation. Dr McGrath - you told me that you really believed I would feel a lot better this time around and you were absolutely right. I got the chance to walk outside today and walked 5.22 miles in just a little over 1 hr 20 min. I felt great and I continue to be amazed at my quick recovery. I got the chance to visit with some of the cardio rehab staff I'll be working with, and they said I hardly looked like I'd had anything done. I had to show them my scar. Thank you for the wonderful job you and anyone else from Mid Atlantic Cardiothoracic Surgeons who were involved in my procedure and post-procedure recovery. I've lost all the weight I gained in the hospital plus some more and am under 180 lbs for the first time in several years. I'm very anxious to complete my rehab and return to working out on my own.
