I am 38 years old did an hour of cardio 3 times a week I had a diet of salads salads salads and cheese My husband took me to the hospital because I had underarm pit pain shortness of breath. I stent later I am thankful to God for letting me continue to be an inhabitant on His beautiful green earth I had very minimal damage however I get these little tweaks or little pains that come and go. I think it is the change of not having my salads they said it is only for a year ) I am starting to feel really great. Over did it a little at the grocery store yesterday. All those light weight items add up:/ I am curious. Can I start doing yoga ? As a beginner. I need something to work my stress out from work and cardio rehab doesn't start for 2 more weeks. I have quit smoking so I need this.View Thread
Thank you much cardio star. I guess I thought I was invincible. Making the lifestyle change now. My husband is too. From what I have heard and seen with others. Change does make a difference for the better. Some people that I have spoken with have only had one episode. And have lived 20 years without another. I am trying to learn how to follow in their footsteps. I have a list of questions for the doctor on Thursday.View Thread
Thank you all for the comments. I am walking a out 30 minutes twice a day. When the weather permits. With little or no shortness of breath. I will hold off on the other until I have my first follow up visit with the doctor. I am hoping they will okay the yoga but if not I will live:) This is hereditary my father has a stent in the same artery I do. he just was a little older then I am now ( thanks trans fat ) that I am learning is in EVERYTHING !!! It is a beautiful day. God Made !!!View Thread
I understand you completely. I am 38 and had a stent put in 13 days ago. I get little tweaks every now and again that scare the day lights out of me I see the cardiologist in a few more days. I just can't get used to the no vegetable diet on my blood thinner meds I think that is the culpritView Thread
