Yes,They will give you anesthesia so that you become calm & do not feel pain during surgical intervention.
Your anesthetist will insert tubes in your wind pipe through your mouth,which are known as endotracheal tubes.These tubes ae helpful in delivering oxygento lungs.
Hope this will help you.
They will put a incision on your breast bon(sternum).They will also take a graft from the veins in your lower limb.This graft is used to by pass the blocked artery.
After the operation they may put a ches tube to remove excessof fluid with in the chest which can b there due to surgical insult or due toincrease in blood flow in that area.
You may be kept for few days in ICU.
