Scared at 51
by jeffery peterson
I have been diebetic since 1998 where i lost 105 pounds and was imediatly put on insulin. athen about 6 months ago durring the summer i noticed severe chest pains after mowing the grass,etc..Finally i told my wife we need to go have it checked out. In the ER they did a nitro patch to control the pain, then admitted me for observation. Next day the enzeims in my heart went up .05%, which alarmed doctors. Turns out I had a heart attack, but with no serious heart damage.
I ended up with a triple by pass surgery, there are alot of days where i feel fantastic, and others i feel down, no engergy. Its been dec 24,th 2013 that i had surgery and I really thought i'd be farther along recovery wise. But as i read it will take 12 or more weeks to completely heel. I'm not the most patiant person in the world, but for something like this, ya have to be.
