[quote=#juan;820685]Been there, done all that. All that except for the surgery. In my case they did what they call angioplasty. They put in a few stents to open up the offending arteries.
Colpy, go along with the exercize they will be reccomending. In a month you will be walking a mile....In three months you will be running a mile....After that the sky's the limit.
Am I right if I say your heart is less sore than where they got the replacement arteries from?
Hang in there. Glad you're back.....
Yeah, they did the dye test with me Monday Morning after the attack. They had told me they thought my heart was undamaged as my attack was very minor, thanks to the quick application of aspirin and treatment. I expected to be done and out Wednesday...........but then the Doc started saying "oh"..........."Oh". He told me I had three 80 to 90 % blockades, one of which was in a artery "y" section...........which limited options to
1. drug therapy
2. high risk angioplasty.......which means they do one side of the "y", which action blocks the other, causing a heart attack on the table, which they resolve by doing the other side of the "y".
3. see a surgeon
I said "Which fixes me?"
They said "closest to a fix is a surgeon"
I said "Find one"
Then waited until Thursday for the operation.
In this case, I was treated fabulously by our socialized medical system.
You'll be pleased to hear.
And I have so far experienced practically NO discomfort in either incision..........the 7 inch one down the centre of my chest, or the 18" one down my leg.
Wifey says I look like something on the table on CSI.
