It may be just nerves, or something, or maybe my TV....

Break is nearly over, take a look..

Looks great in HD, if you have it.

My mother in law recently had a valve on her heart replaced so it's pretty interesting.

yuck!!!!!!!

must be the pressure of the tv cameras :whistling:

i actually think this is so wrong. He can't be 100% focused on the operation knowing he is LIVE on tv, with camera, and people phoning in asking questions during a valve repair, which is not going to plan.

its one of them things where you dont want to look but curiosity gets the better of you

**** me

ooh, explanation.
the worst part was when they were showing you when they made the opening. using that contraption which pushed the rib cage apart :?

phatboy123;5317545

lol u wish



My immediate reaction to that was 'you've broken my heart'.

But then I thought um best not say that if anything goes wrong. :thinking:

This is very interesting tv, sounds like it is more complex than they thought.
If it started to go really wrong I would change channel, don't want to sit and watch a guy die.

It was an assumption,

I just want to add. I have a friend who works in the NHS who "borrowed" the exact model of tweezers being used by the surgeon, I use them to remove the hooks out of the mouths of fish I catch.

...I bet s/he died...they didnt show the heart beating at all :?

brain surgery tomorrow!
this could get a bit weird if they do it every night lol.

Tomorrow is a conscious brain operation... A must watch IMO.

I think they stop the heart, for up to 4 hours!

what time does it start?
i missed the first load. and i know the ending so i cant watch the begining

phatboy123;5317629

I think they stop the heart, for unto 4 hours!



so they said.
i dont think that thye died tbh. they said it wasnt an overly complicated surgery. but they found more complications

phatboy123;5317629
