Mr Aprim Youhana
13th April 2019
On August 25th 2018 and for a few occasions afterwards, I was suffering Heart Attacks due to blocked arteries. I was admitted first to Singleton Hospital. then onto Morriston. Whilst in Singleton, the staff were brilliant, but I just had to wait until a bed became available at Morriston.
I was eventually transferred up there, and although I went through several wards, I ended up on Ward C, where I was until the night before my quadruple heart bypass operation. One of the nurses, who were brilliant on that ward came to see me and explained what was going to happen, and said that Aprim Youhana would come to see me on the Sunday afternoon. I thought a consultant on a Sunday no way. Anyway 2pm on the Sunday Mr Youhana came to see me in my bed. What a genius. I only made one mistake and that was asking him to explain what would happen when I went for the op. He started to explain in great deal what was going to happen, but when he got to the bit about opening up my chest, that was enough, and basically said , get on with it.
Mr Youhana duly performed the operation on off I went to ITU. To my eternal shame when I started coming round from the anaesthetic, Mr Youhana was stood there with his colleagues and I asked them what the hell they were doing, and then swore at them. I have since been told that this happens in a lot of cases as the knock out juice they use is very strong and you have no idea what you are saying or doing. Any way my sincerest apologies to Mr Youhana and the gang.
I will finish by saying if in the unfortunate circumstance you have to have a bypass op like mine, and Mr Youhana is to be your surgeon, you are in the finest hands possible. The man is a complete genius. If it was not primarily for this man's skill and his team, I would not be writing this today, and my wife would be a widow, my son would not have his Father. All my fault I know but I cant change the past.
To Mr Youhana personally I would like to send my most sincere thanks and respect to a true legend of a man who has given me a chance to live a full life, to become a grandad and to keep on loving a wife and son who have had to put up with me being on the sick for the last 7 months. Thanks to you all, especially Mr Youhana and the staff at Morriston Cardiology Unit, you are all geniuses, very gifted humans, and the people who rely on your services, should be grateful we have you. Thanks to my wife Svetlana and son William for being there, and anyone reading this in a position of bad heart health, don't worry, with this lot you are ok. They are quite simply the best and God, in some cases Allah, bless and take care of you all.
