How long is it best to wait before going on holiday after surgery?

Taking time to relax and rejuvenate after surgery is important, however if you are planning a holiday or wish to travel abroad soon after, it is critical that you check with your cardiac nurse or cardiologist before you contact your travel agent in case there are limitations. Recovery times differ among patients depending on the type of surgery you have had.
