  • No longer 10' tall and bullet proof

    Last Friday after a spicy dinner I had what I thought was heartburn. I took some Pepto and it went away. It happened again on Saturday. Thought maybe I was having some acid reflux or something. Sunday night it got really bad. Chest pain but also a bit in my left arm. But again it went away about half an hour later.

    Then I was working at my desk on Monday. Around 1pm it hit me hard. Chest pain, left arm, between the shoulder blades, and a bit in my jaw. I finally got my mind right and had my wife take me to the ER. They got me right in, tested, and took me to the cathe lab. About an hour later I was in the ICU with a stent in the front artery of my heart. Nurse called it the "widow maker". I spent a day in the ICU, then 2nd day in medical under observation. They told me it was easy to clear the blockage because I came in so quickly. But if I had let it pass on Monday I might not have made it through Tuesday.

    I'm back home now and feeling much better. Meds and cardio rehab are in my future over the next year. Watching my pressure and pulse like a hawk for the next month or so. I'll have to find out if I can ride again this summer. Hopefully...

      Glad your ok, I've taken on the Keto Carnivore way of eating, today is day 144 as I keep a log of my meals and exercise (keeps me honest), so far I'm down 28 lbs and 7 inches off my belly,not type 2 diabetic anymore but need to keep moving forward. I walk everyday and 5&10lb dumbbells every other day.Getting old sucks but dying is forever, got a few good years left but need to help ourselves to hopefully get there.

          I'm so very sorry to hear that Darrel! I wish you the best and a speedy recovery. To all those reading, pain in the left arm is the first sign that you better call 911 ASAP!

                    Hang in there buddy. I'll talk to J.C. and His Dad and see if they can help you out. Y'know, people still ride that are a lot worse off than you are. Don't be thinking like that or you just might talk yourself into it. And take what those doctors say with a grain of salt. According to my doctors, I should have been down for the count 17 years ago. Get well soon.

                      I feel you. Went through something similar about 12 years ago (was 43 at the time). Good to hear you caught things in time and are now at the rehab and healing process. Take your time to heal and let those around you help (sometimes easier said than done). You'll be back in the saddle again for many more miles with smiles.
