Whenever any patients comes in case of a women I always asked request bring your spouse, bring your family. That’s the first thing I think that we all need the support even though we are the decision maker and we want to be but I tell the support is very important over here. Sometime the husband in the background doesn’t want to have or kids are afraid and then the third thing is that who do support group. Granted that me as physician I have not have that operation, I can't give them the view first hand knowledge how does it feel. But in the support group there are people like them and since it’s a variety they’ll tell you all different things, wonderful, not so wonderful or whatever it is and how do they cope with it. And I think once we know then we can cope with it and that this would be the end result and that end result is going to be great then I think our fear will disappear. If the patient wishes to go and go see how the other are doing and go to support group we have once a month it’s in the evening, office has to schedule at this point there's no charge for it, there's no obligation for it, it’s going sort of seeking information, finding out be a treat finding, be it that it’s going to align my fear which ever way you want to use it that’s up to you. There going to be patients like you including the one who runs that she also had the bypass and you will answers the question for you and for young person can I have children, not children because our lay who runs the support group she’s had kids after the bypass as well and there are other who have had similar experience. So king of gives you a best first hand experience and at this point as in no charge, no obligation.
