I was hospitalized for 8 days due to vascular occlusion and needed to undergo bypass surgery.  I was familiar with ProPectin but never took it.  I started to take ProPectin throughout my hospitalization hoping to see the effects and during a routine preoperative testing on the day of the surgery the results indicated that the vascular occlusion was no longer a critical problem!  To my surprise, my doctor informed me that surgery was no longer necessary.  I was released from the hospital and was discharged to recuperate at home.  I was relieved to be able to avoid the surgery and its post-operative sequela.
