    I just said my sister was almost a doctor. All she has to do is pass a few more exams and she's fully qualified.

    Just because none of us know what we are talking about, it doesn't mean that we can't get hold of some reliable information or give a little encouragement, the poor thing.

    Hmmm... He's not technically human, so it wouldn't really be like cannibalism...

    I didn't say I know about surgery or open heart bypasses, all I did was say go to webmd

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    She talked for a long time and used alot of medical language, but in short, she said that shaking is nothing out of the ordinary. Heart surgery leaves the body in shock, and it will take 4-6 weeks for your mother to feel better. She's probably going to have trouble sleeping and feel abit moody as well, but again, it just means that your mum is getting better. For the first couple of weeks she might notice a kind of "clicking noise" in her chest, have swelling where the surgery took place and experience muscle pains in her shoulders and back, but again this is normal.

    All you have to do is help to look after your mum for a while. Make sure she keeps taking her medicine like the doctors said and help to make her feel relaxed (take her an extra pillow, or some flowers... that will probably make her feel better faster).

    And listen to what Zui Quan said. If you start to worry too much, or you think something is really wrong, then make sure you tell a doctor. Doctors are there to help you and your mum, so don't be afraid of asking them questions or raising concerns.


    I hope your mum feels better soon. ^^
    doode, i love you! and your sister!! ^^

    I kow I shouldn't worry so much about my mom. I just want everything to go well. Especially her recovery. I know I won't be finding all the information I need, but Sib gave me pretty much everything i could ask for. I spoke to my mom tonight and she said her shaking went down. and btw, the shaking is like shivering.

    Thank you guys fr the help/advice!! You guys helped more than the nurses did!!

    Everyone here is happy to help. Be sure to tell us when your mum has made a full recovery.

    shaking is a common thing after a heart surgery. a few signs to notice is if she starts having cold sweats and numbnes on the left side call the EMTs (if at home) or page the nurse. but this is commen in most. I myself being a E5 EMT have been called on something like this and its been nothing. Juse make sure she has alot of rest and dosen't try to move much

    I've had Non-hodkins lymphoma in my leg for 5 years. Undergone several surgies. After my First operation, i noticed my leg (the one with the cancer) would twitch unexpectedly. It quit after a few weeks. After the next surgery it happened but not as long. It's nothing serious, and not harmful. You shouldn't have anything to worry about.
