Meeting Prof. Sir Magdi Yacoub for the first time just before they put me to sleep.
Receiving oxygen just before the anaesthetic kicked in.
The sternal saw opening my chest.
Removing my old diseased heart.
Old heart on the left and new heart on the right. See the difference?!
My new 13 year younger heart ready to be transplanted.
Stitching my new heart in place.
Recovering in the Intensive Care Unit.
Chatting to the Prof. Sir Magdi Yacoub 48 hours after my operation.
