Ask Dr. Gott 9/12

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 60-year-old male. In 2004, I had seven-bypass open-heart surgery. The doctors said I had a good heart, but it was weak. Before my operation, I could walk at a fast pace. Now I can barely walk out to get the mail without getting winded. Sometimes I feel like I am going to pass out when trying to carry groceries into the house. I have to stop and rest, leaning over a chair. I was like this the third day in recovery.
