Hello. Iím glad I found this site. I received so much support and assistance in the diabetes message boards so I hope I can enjoy the same benefits from heart related message boards.
A little history. I had a quadruple bypass in 1991 and I felt quite good for years. Of course I was on the many pills a day regimen. In 2008, we moved from Washington State to Arizona and since my wife was experiencing some heart anomalies, we decided to get both of us checked out. They ended up installing three stents in her heart and tried, but failed, to install stents in my heart. Long story short, I had my second bypass in 2008. Since then it appears by condition has somewhat degraded. I now carry nitroglycerin with me at all times and have needed to use it on a few occasions.
On a happy note, my weight loss along with more physical activity has resulted in being taken off several meds and reducing others.
Now you have my story and Iím sticking with it.
