Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

It can take up to two months to heal from these procedures. Discomfort in the leg can last several weeks as blood flow through the body improves. How long has this been going on? If longer than several weeks, call your doctor. Always call your doctor anytime you have questions about recovery from heart surgery.
