Report: Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen to Undergo Heart Surgery, Expected to Return for Spring Training

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will undergo heart surgery on Nov. 26 and is expected to be fully recovered prior to spring training, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Jansen announced the upcoming surgery on Friday at the Dodgers’ annual Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway. Recovery is expected to take anywhere between two to eight weeks depending on what the doctors find during surgery.

“If we don’t find anything, so let’s say they go in and nothing happens, everything is good, I will be done in two weeks,” Jansen said, per Gurnick. “But if something is abnormal, then I’ll be down for eight weeks. ... But I still can do all my [offseason work] to get ready for Opening Day.”

Best wishes, and hopes for a speedy recovery.

Once he's healthy, I'd like to hear his comparison to how he feels now vs. how he felt during the past season.

He won’t feel a difference - I guarantee they’ve been keeping him in sinus rhythm 99% of the time.

Please Kenley be smart. This whole thing has had a Reggie Lewis feel to it to me and I hope it’s not like that but I can’t shake that feeling.

One of my friend's wife has this condition. It is not life threatening, as a rule.

I have this condition. It is basically harmless so long as you are staying out of a fib or taking blood thinners while in a fib.

Yeah. My friend's wife keep wanting to have surgery (she had one ablation that didn't stop it) but her Dr. keeps telling her it's not worth the risk.
