was that from a bike accident? if so what happened?
Sweet Jesus. Im glad you came out of it okNope. Bypass surgery. Known as a CABAG (cabbage). Had it don on May 2nd. Dad's birthday.
They gave rerouted my arteries to a heart lung bypass machine, gave me shot and my heart stopped. The machine takes over oxygenating and removing CO2 from the blood and keeps it pumping. they harvest arteries from my chest and weak arm (left for me) and re route my blood flow to bypass the clogs (65%, 85% and 100%). 6 hours later they hit me with a set of paddles to kick start my heart. If it works I get to see my wife and kids again.
Would you believe I just thought I had a case of pneumonia? Worse, my primary care office turned me away for being 5 minutes late. I went to an urgent care and they freaked out saying it wasn't pulmonary (lungs were clear) but cardiovascular and I needed to get to the hospital right away.
I failed a stress test for an artifact in the waveform. Angiogram showed the blockages. withing hours I was moved to a heart-centric hospital nearby where the procedure was performed.
I'm healing and doing well. Looking forward to being able to ride again in August.
