Tuesday, I went to see my GP about some pains in my upper shoulders and back. He ran an ekg......and things escalated, QUICKLY, to a heart cath....,to a scheduled (Wed) quadruple bypass operation. The aorta on the back side of my heart is 100% blocked, the three on the front of the heart are 80% blocked. At 5' 9", 160 #s and CONSTANTLY active (was "slinging" a sledgehammer the day before), this was a TOTALLY unexpected turn of events. Soooooo, if I permanently disappear from the forum, it will not be by choice.

Don't say that please, David! Praise heavens that it has now been discovered and you will be in good care. Sometimes, even very slim people have this kind of trouble. Glad that you have it spotted so early. Stay away from fatty foods might help.

I am sure you will be OK. After the operation, don't sling any more hammer. Please take extreme care with your body even after a successful operation.

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry to hear that @David from Dothan! :cry: That must have been an awful shock, I can't imagine what you and your family must be going through right now. I hope you're in good hands, and we're wishing you all the best for the op on Wednesday. We'll all be thinking of you!

I'm very sorry to hear that David, that must be quite a shock to hear. I am sure we will be seeing you again on this forum in a very short while. It's good that they've got things scheduled so quickly for you, I bet you will be feeling a lot better once this is all out of the way.

Please do keep us posted, we'll be thinking of you!
