In brief: Nothing

You don't need to do anything other than keeping healthy and not smoke.
It will help your progress overall. There are a few types of minimally invasive heart surgery procedures, but overall your progress tends to be a bit faster.

In brief: Guided imagery CD

It wouldn't hurt to listen to a pre-surgery guided imagery cd (ex, healthjourneys.
Com). Many have found them useful.
