WBEN afternoon co-host Tom Bauerle returned to the air Monday after recuperating from open-heart surgery last month. He shared some of his medical experiences on the program on his first day back.
According to an article posted at wben.com, Bauerle's quadruple bypass open-heart surgery at Gates Vascular Institute was a success. He was hospitalized Dec. 3. According to the article, Bauerle had been experiencing chest pain and had "clutched" his chest on occasion. Co-host David Bellavia told Bauerle he should seek medical attention, which he did at a local urgent care facility before he was hospitalized.
