After having pain in the chest and breathing difficulties visited City Hospital emergency. They asked for dr Byron(cardiologist) to come and after few tests, he advised to do angiography and during that treatment he found out that artery stenting was required, but 5 arteries was blocked and 5 stents was dangerous to install. Then meeting was called up and decided that coronary artery bypass surger was required. At that time dr. Andre Wessels took over the case to continue with the surgery. So I was admited to to hospital and he clearly explained the procedure to be done. The surgery took him around 6-7 hours and it was successful. After that I was transfered to ICU where staid for about 6 days and after fee days more was checked out from the hospital. Just wanted to say thanks to dr. Byron and dr. Andre for saving my life. This took place 6 years ago and till now I have no problems with my heart.
