Annual heart check-up
« on: May 02, 2017, 03:41:38 PM »
It has been 20 years since my heart attack and the operation which involved 6 by-passes. I have been having annual checks of my heart since the surgery and today was another of those days, the 20th anniversary of the by-pass surgery. The stress test I did gave excellent results with all graft working perfectly and pumping an excellent flow of blood, the doctor said that my blood pressure and pulse rate were that of a teenager, I can't ask for a better result than that.

Great news. I have a heart check-up every year and always breath a sigh of relief when they tell me I'm not dead. :D

Glad to hear that, it's good to care frequently and constantly about health, especially to check-up the heart. My father sadly did not care enough and missed his annual check-ups fore several years and so we lost him much too early. I learned that lession the hard way. As Lance said, your situation is really encouraging!
All the best

Good News Des !!!  I guess that means your attack was in your 40's.  This should  serve as an inspiration to all.

Again Good news and continued good health !
