Scrapper. Tom, ammca...thanks for the welcome. I had a stent installed in '04 and told the docs that something was still not right. They repeatedly put me on the treadmill and I would go the full 15 minutes. Anyway fast forward to '12...I went to the ER and told them I was not leaving until I get some definite answers. Treadmill, angiogram...found some inflammation of the left cardiac artery (the widowmaker) 70% blocked. Packed up and sent to Tulsa. The next morning chest cracked open and had CABG (cardiac artery bypass graft). Up and walking in 30 hours...4 days later I was on my way home. Tomorrow...13 April...is the 7th week since surgery. Still tender as a chicken nugget...sneezing and coughing are events that I can do without. I still have not ridden yet...the nurse that pulled the tubes rides and strongly suggested I not try for at least 8 weeks. So next week...look out!! ammca...there are camping areas all around me. Sure like you to join us...it's always a fun ride! Even if you have to trailer out. Let me know...we can adjust our ride times if needed!
