Harrison County Sheriff Bruce Hampton returned home last Friday after undergoing triple-bypass heart surgery last Tuesday at St. Joseph Hospital in Lexington.
“I feel good,” Hampton said over the phone Tuesday morning. “I’m just limited in what I can do.”
At age 57, Hampton said he visited his family doctor after experiencing some shortness of breath.
Hampton said he was referred to a heart specialist and underwent a stress test and heart catheterization that proved he needed to have heart surgery.
