Heart

I have had 6 minor heart attacks. I have never had open heart surgery however, I do have 8 stints and have had 29 angio-plasties. I also have an ICD (pacemaker/dibulator combination). I suffer from unstable angina and have coronary artery disease. I have a very loving wife who has stood by me through thick and thin. The doctors declared me disabled in December of 1991, which, hit me like a ton of bricks since I was only 44 at the time. I was 39 when I had my first MI. I am now a month away from being 69. I believe this support group is a wonderful idea. also My left circumflex is 100% occluded. I was told that it was my least important one of the three major arteries.
