He said 36C in his update.  I presume that is Kathy.  :unsure: 

Anyway nzoner, welcome back to the land of the living.  I too am interested in hearing the diet recommendations, as I’ve been reading up on some different options for my situation.  Antioxidants are good for you; wait no, bad because they protect cancer cells (there are actual studies on this).  Also reading about foods that are “anti angiogenic” which means they help prevent cancer cells from generating blood supply networks. In general I continue to be amazed at the lack of knowledge regarding diet in general.

:thumbsup:

Oh, man, I'm glad this turned out to be mostly ok.  Great to see you back even though I don't know you that well!

 

With a user name like that, I'm going to guess that you and nzoner have something in common. If you're in the car waxing business, never mind.

I have the same sentiment as everyone else. Nzoner is a quality guy we've all known a long time and I'm also wishing him the best.

THIS is the proper response. Wishing him a speedy recover.

Bit of advice? Like I said, I had 100% blockage,  then they put the stent in.

 

Be prepared for random, ischemic pains. Your body's got a brand new contraption in one of the most sensitive parts you've got. You're going to have some settling in pains. Not every hitch or jab means you're going to keel over.  Be understandably cautious, but don't let yourself get freaked out.

 

But having said that, it is absolutely vital that you absolutely immediately dial 911 if

ischemia

or is·chae·mi·a

[ ih-skee-mee-uh ]SHOW IPA
 

noun Pathology.

local deficiency of blood supply produced by vasoconstriction or local obstacles to the arterial flow.

There's nothing funny at all in wiff's post, least of all the word "ischemic." If you found wiff's post so funny that it hurt, stay away from Sux's dancing cat videos.

I have no idea what I looked up but I'm going to blame it on the painkillers.Reason I'm replying to this tonight is I saw the right word with a definition on a poster in my doc's office today and new something was amiss.

No clue what I looked up but thanks for pointing it out.

Final thoughts as I got great news from my heart doc that there was no damage to heart and that I may resume living life and in her words,"let your body be your guide." My chest still feels like I got kicked by a Missouri Mule at times but they said that's gonna take awhile yet.I don't go back for three months!!  My blood thinner medicine is the most important of my meds again in her words,"do not miss this pill,if the stent clogs you could drop dead on the spot."

 

@jerryskids nothing really to report on a diet.The mrs went out and loaded up on low sodium/fat food and the doc said that's okay but as in all things moderation.She also said she was okay with low carb as long as it wasn't red meat heavy as it helps great with blood sugar levels.She even joked I had given up booze,weed and nicotine and I had to have some fun.

@Voltaire @wiffleball so I went back on my phone and looked at what I had searched and I had clicked on Ischemic rest pain and gotten something about the feet so maybe that combined with painkillers will explain the laughter.

Anyhow thanks so much to all of you for the thoughts,prayers,laughs and the like.I'm still taking it easy for a few weeks but thankfully my firework kids have really stepped up and Pyro Joe's is looking good and on track for another season.I probably won't be around much for awhile so hope you all take care.

God bless you all,love you.

At least the timing wasn't terribly awful. Based on your post there, I imagine the PyroJoe season is about to enter the heavy phase if it hasn't already started. I can relate since I also have a seasonal job. Normally I work two days a week but when school lets out in January or June ((BOOM)) things go nuts and I am not online here too much either.

Good afternoon fellas,never ever have I been so happy to visit this place.

I'd like to answer each of you personally but going to keep it short and go back to resting up.

I was cautious about logging on the first place as I knew there would be some hilarity here and oh does it hurt to laugh as the EMT did a number on my chest when doing CPR but the laughs I got  were well worth it.I also got the shock paddles and was left a nice burn on my left side where apparently the paddle slipped but it's a great reminder that none of us get out of here alive.

For those wondering I'm 58 and was at one time a very heavy drinker and smoker and the doc made sure to point out that this was a major reason in my blockage but he was surprised that I had only one and the rest were either clear or close to it,but then again it only takes one right.

As for the day itself the short story version is I started the morning about 8:15 with a pot of coffee and the mrs(36C) and I were watching our home church services online when I started getting that uncomfortable feeling in my back that usually meant I had a thoracic episode coming.As usual I started doing some of physical therapy but it wasn't working.Anyhow don't know how much time passed but one of the last things I remember is sitting in front of a fan on the floor and an EMT standing over me.I remember walking to the ambulance and leaving  and very shortly after that saying where are we and then everything went black.The mrs said the ambulance lights and siren went on(she was following) and away it went leaving her far behind.No ideas here the next I remember is coming to in a cold bright room with what seemed like 20 people hoovering over my nekkid body and my name being called out of a distant fog.

So they put in a stint in and by 2:30 I was laying in a bed in ICU.Anyhow life as I knew it is changing to a new diet,physical therapy,various doctor appointments etc.

The real kicker to all this is I was 58 had never once stayed in a hospital as a patient,never ridden in an ambulance,never had a surgery and wham I get the trifecta all in a few hours.

Lastly thanks to all of you the well wishes and hilarity have done me good.As cmh posted and I'd like to repeat,none of us are promised tomorrow so please never take anything for advantage and don't ever think it can't happen to you.God loves every one of us and sent His only Son to show that love but we have to accept that in this life in order to experience eternal life with Him.

This little experience has also taught me that I'm going to say I love you a whole lot more and that includes even a bunch of jokers I have an internet relationship with.

Love you guys!!! God Bless!!

 

P.S. The 2nd trip ended up being a thoracic attack but being so close to the heart attack I panicked and took the Nitro with a low blood pressure and it knocked me completely out.I got home last night and had a restful,healing night.

 

 

Welcome back dumbass Also when you woke up in that room it was me and the boyz having a little fun with your butth0le.

Saw you post in another thread so had to come here to find when you came back. I’m glad you’re ok and doing better. I’m sure that was scary sh1t. And yea, CPR hurts. One of the things they taught us is making sure we do it hard enough. If you crack the ribs it’s fine. Just keep doing cpr (one guy that came in the ER had already had it done the whole ambulance right and his chest was straight jello cause we were trying to keep him alive. He was dead though when he came in the ER). Hopefully this is just an episode and you live a longer life. I’m sure it was a wake up call to live a little healthier. Just don’t forget to actually live and enjoy yourself man. Hope for the best bro 👍🏻

Our CPR instructor in the Army was demonstrating the technique on the Annie manequin and he paused and looked up at us and said. "You know, sometimes as you do this, you realize that you've accidentally broken a rib. Do you know what you do then?"  ((Silence)) "You keep right on going. Ribs can be fixed." And with that, he went back to demonstrating what he'd been doing. That I can remember that momentary pause all these years later means: message received.

Several of my nurses all said,"if you don't crack a rib or two you're not doing it right."

Yea man. Cause are that point, keeping the heart beating and pumping is more important than a broken or cracked rib. Stuck with me all these years and every time I had to teach BLS it was something I made sure to say
