….just another thought for you! There is a test where they inject the patient with something that simulates stress on the heart as if you were on the treadmill if I remember correctly. I had this done after I had my heart attack back in 2002.
I will tell everyone up front that I'm not the most knowledgeable on heart stuff, so you will have to help me out if you all know what I'm trying to say here.
Anyways, it may be an option for you since you cannot physically handle the treadmill at the moment.
I go in tomorrow to visit with my surgeon to see what happened, and made them decide to fill me with stints. I hope the news is not too bad, ...but I'm one to push myself to the brink, and have it coming to me I suppose. I have been a workaholic all my life….many times 16hr days, especially back when I worked two jobs. Smoking, and filling my belly with mash potatoes and gravy! …and they want me to give that up??
Have a great evening, and hope to visit with you again soon.
