Corey123, don't give up hope on never being able to move too fast. Heart repair research seems to be moving on apace:

Thanks!

The cardiologist today, said that an implantable defibrilator would only be suggested if all else doesn't seem to work, as I figured that she would say that.

She did suggest that I come back for a stress test. It would be WALKING ONLY - NO RUNNING. I'm also now in possesion of some nytroglicerine, to be used only if there seems to be a tightness or pain in the chest.

If I fail the stress test, then I might have to have that proceedure that VP
Dick Cheney had done where a cleaning tube is put through the one of arteries to help get rid of any cholesterol there.

I will. I also hope that it's a success.

Thanks for the link, Snoop!!

It shows that there is some renewed hope for the millions of people who are suffering from heart disease - myself included.

Glad you found it useful, Corey123. The only thing to do now is keep in the best shape you possibly can so that when new techniques are developed, you're in the best possible position to benefit from them.

I'm nearing 50 and about to embark on a new stage in my life that I hope will sort out some of my health issues. I won't be giving up drinking, but I imagine I'll be drinking a lot less, and I'll certainly be getting a lot more exercise. These are things I should have started years back, but people like you who have to deal with major challenges are an inspiration. So thanks for posting your original message.

You're welcome!

Not trying to scare you, but a couple of old friends once told me that when you reach your 50's that's when things start to take a tumble.

Thanks for the advice, Corey123. Truth to tell, I think my 'things' began to tumble a while back.

You're welcome again!

I thought being diagnosed with diabetes was scary. That's much easier to deal with than being diagnosed with CHF!!

To me, that is REAL SCARY! Hard to tell which way is up. But I think that all the diseases that i'm told i got, ties into just one thing - high blood pressure and obesity.

I'm not that obese though. Obesity DOES run in my family though. My weight had sprouted up to almost 280lbs. I've lost just over 40lbs so far, and need to try to take off more. It's the only way that some of the things that I was diagnosed with would stand a better chance of going away.
