Interesting times for sure. My widow maker artery on top 85% clogged fixed with SS stent working 100%. My main right artery 95% clogged fixed with 2 new dissolving stents, working 100%! The other was totally clogged they couldn't get it, but i grew myself some branch arteries that will suffice for now. Turns out I had the same team that put in the 1st dissolving stent in the world on July 5th. I have one of the 1st hundred used! How cool is that. The other stent was too close to a branch and too large to use the new ones. On 4 new meds and they think they might be able to fix the clogged one in 3 months if needed if I want.
I'm over weight, drink to much, work in a stressfull profession and the doctors say I could not have done this on my own that genetics are involved! I had no real symptoms but mild indigestion pressure which was my heart screaming for help! Would have never known and probably had a major heart attack by myself fishing at 8000ft!
Lifestyle change has already begun with my hip, but now it HAS TO CHANGE. They rebuilt my heart if I eliminate all risk factors I can do anything I want in life in a manner of months!
The real change is what this did to my mind. No more salami on the trail and I'm no longer afraid of wash outs!
Get your hearts checked if any doubt!
I'll be back on the trail and getting fishing lines wet after a month of cardio rehab!
See you all soon!
