PATIENT - Bob Jones

Hospital, Adelaide

Recovering from a prostatectomy -

St Johns

Your prostate operation was 12 hours ago and you are feeling very weak and
The nurse told you about your heart attack while on the operating table. (You
had been having chest pains and shortness of breath before the operation but
didnt tell the medical team because you were frightened they would have
cancelled your prostate operation).
Ask lots of questions about this angiogram procedure that the Doctor is talking
about: why do you need to fast before the procedure? [You are feeling weak
fasting will make you weaker];

Do you need to stay in bed for a long period of time after the angiogram? How
long is it going to take to get back on your feet back to normal you like bike
riding with your friends.
