Re: A-fib and marijuana

Don't think I can blame anyone except maybe my parents and genetics....as both died from effects of heart disease....Dad at age 60 and Mother 89. I haven't always cared to live exactly the best recommended way to prevent illness either. Once asked my Cardiologist the best way to prevent heart proble...

Re: A-fib and marijuana

MKM..... Probably just out of the blue. Stress in some form occurs daily. Haven't changed diet or taken up any new bad habits. Still consume my 2 cups black coffee daily and get sufficient exercise either at the gym or working. Blood pressure doesn't fluctuate much that I am aware of and never check...

Re: A-fib and marijuana

Well, since commenting on this post about A-fib and 10 months after last Cardioversion, A-fib returned suddenly last Saturday with the usual symptoms shortness of breath and muscle weakness in legs.

Someone that must use political BS to begin a post has more than heart issues.

Re: Pain in back of neck and left arm with fingers too

Yes Leah, severe neck pain and I went to a Chiropractor that almost killed me. Got some pain pills and about 2 weeks later I seemed healed. Many years later and for hip pain, I had a bone scan, x-rays and a C T scan. This was early 2014 and the same time I got the ICD. All tests related to the pain ...

Re: New News

Sorry to hear the bad news Chrissy. I also consider you as a friend and I always look forward to your posts. Have thought a lot lately about dying but it's mostly when I wake up during the night.....start thinking the worst, feel doom and gloom. After waking when it's time to get up and the first cu...

Re: Beginning an exercise program after getting an ICD

Davis.......you are putting a lot of trust in your ICD's ability to save you. Also, I don't know about S. Africa triathlons but here, swimming is in a lake.....not a pool where you can stand up. Would hate to think my ICD was firing while I was swimming. Thought crossed my mind of a tombstone that r...

Re: Beginning an exercise program after getting an ICD

Davis........In reference to your Marathon training and events, you wrote "For most of the events my wife stays with me (we do everything together) for the fear that something will happen." Not sure what your wife can do beyond calling for help.....when something happens it's too late for prevention...

Re: Anxiety

Ikevin........Fear as you described can't be good for you. I've had the ICD almost 5 years, have been shocked twice and still work at age 70. My plan is to continue working and make the most of whatever time is left. Your statement "the doctors have done everything they can do and that's the end" do...

Re: A-fib and marijuana

I had a little trouble following the article wording, especially "Variables included in a step-forward multivariate logistic regression model included age, race and cardiac risk factors". Other than that it says further study needed. I am for anything natural or synthetic that's proven to help cardi...

ROBO......if or when I get to your point in life, I would have to first have someone to drive me around....a retired wife in your case (I have one too). I would be concerned about an event that left me only half dead.....guessing you consider yourself there already. Well the big event starts and bef...

Re: Reaction to being shocked

Congratulations Steel city kid, now you are an official member of the "Electronically Enhanced" club. I didn't experience any pain after surgery because I was taking pain meds for a spinal problem at the same time. Hope they told you not to raise your arm overhead for a while. Keep us posted on your...
