So what's the StoryWell, this is my story. I've been posted a couple times on Support Network and I am a survivor and Ambassador for the American Heart Association. I am giving a speech next Tuesday for the US Courts in D.C. and gave one last week at a Senior Wellness Center. I've lost 50 lbs and walk about 7-10 miles a day, play full court basketball with the young ones, do spinning class. I teach as a Wellness Coach at the Y and am in the best shape of my life. I feel great. I got a quintuple bypass a year and a half ago and previous to that I had 13 stents. I was going for the record. I figured, if I could get 2 stents every four years, by the time I was 94, I would have 36 and break the world record. I could be the Barry Bonds of Stents. Without the steroids.
But I've completely turned around my diet and exercise regimen and am supposed to be some kind of poster boy. Unitl this week. I was exercising on the bike for just a couple of minutes and my pulse started jumping from 90 to 150 back to 139 back to 150, even hit 160. At my height and weight, 160 is very high. I'm scared. I've been through so much and have come out so well and now I'm wondering if I have Arhythmias. They checked me for 24 hours with a Halter Monitor and I will find out the results soon. But after all I've been through it sucks to face the possibility of yet another heart problem I may have to face
