Abstract [en]

In order to study recovery and quality of life after bypass surgery, both objective and subjective data were collected during structured interviews. A total of 56 patients participated in the study. Data were collected during hospital admission and during two home visits at 6 and 12 months after Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG). Patients reported improved state of health and quality of life. Most of the changes occurred within the first six months after discharge. However, for most patients life had more or less returned to normal one year after CABG. It was also found that few of the patients changed their risk behaviour after surgery.
