Some do mention two years and 'the chances reduce dramatically after two years' etc. But I'm trying to avoid looking things up as I've found it a bit unsettling at times! I will be at two years and five months this coming Wednesday. All good so far.
Now at four years, six months and six days. Recent CEA 1.8. Nurse is pleased and I am hopeful. The start was emergency surgery for a complete blockage and the surgeon's comment of, 'one more night and we could have lost you. The worst I've ever seen' I'm writing this to encourage anyone who is feeling a bit lost. Best wishes.
