Hi Friends, This past couple of days have been very scary and disturbing for me. My father was admitted in a hopital in Chennai after a chest pain. An angiogram was done, the doctors have found out that he has 3 blocks and that he has to have Bypass surgery within a week or 10 days. He has been discharged from the hospital and if all goes well he is planning to get the surgery done next week. I would like to know if anyone in IL has any personal experience of Bypass surgery done to a parent or inlaw in chennai or anywhere in India. What are the pros and cons of the surgery. He is planning on getting the surgery done in Frontier Lifeline Hospital in Mogappair. Anybody know the success rate of these kinds of surgeries there and how much it costs for the overall procedure. Please help ladies, I am counting on all of you to get some info. I am a nervous wreck since sunday. Thanks in advance, Jothi. BTW, If any of you have Elderly parents or grandparents Please encourage them to have regular check ups. Most hospitals in chennai have Full Body check up these days. I wish I had asked my father to get this done earlier. Jothi.
