One Day on My way to Hip Replacement SurgeryWow, I thought I was in fair health except I needed my left hip replaced (years of heavy dead lifts). I was having my doctors practice giving the okay to have the surgery. Step one ECG, oops there is something their but don't worry we will do an echo test oops there is something their don't worry we will have the cardio doctor check you out. Doctor reads the prior results and said we will do a stress test oops don't worry we will do a heart cath.
%u200BThe "fun" begins. I have the cath at the hospital (no oops this time) I am admitted the next day I have two arteries replaced (one they could not do anything with) my heart stops my lung collapses I develop pneumonia they could not control my heart rate raced me to another hospital and thank goodness it worked, they put in a pacemaker/defib. 9 days later my beat up body was sent home. My taste buds left and I lost 30lbs. Don't that sound like "fun".
%u200BMy first visit to my cardio doctor I shook his hand and thanked him for saving my life. " Save your life, Hell we almost killed you."
%u200BTwo years later I have my new hip I go to the gym 6 days a week (thank God for the dedicated rehab team) my rested pulse has gone from 80 to 55.
%u200BCongestive heart failure has really changed this NC boys. Any help or tips would be great. Plus anything for circulation (natural) causing ED?
