Great! But, but, but......"Sure miss the alcohol." Oh man, fate worse than death. Stay on the statins and wash them down with your favorite fermented beverage. That's my totally uninformed Rx. ;)

Do yourself a favor and buy the book Vitamin k and the calcium paradox. It explains how to remove the calcium buildup on your arteries and depositing that calcium in your bones instead!

Natto or vitamin K2, vitamin A, and sunshine is the prescription to remove the calcium form your arteries!
Statins are the biggest rip off ever! Watch the movie "Statin nation" if you don't believe me!

Enjoy your health and collect social security for a long time, that's my plan!:coolup:

Social Security??? The Right/conservatives will finally take that away to balance the budget and pay for the defense/industrial monster budget.

Someone PMd me and said there are no more treadmill stress tests North of the Border. My friend said she got an exercise treadmill test at Sharp Memorial last week after they placed the stent. They do have other chemical stress tests without exercise as well. Anyone up on recent exercise stress tests being performed in the US?

I had a treadmill stress test done last month. I get them yearly. I also had a chemical one done when I was recuperating from an ACL repair surgery a few years back.

Healthy Heart in Tucson does them. I just had one last year.

I had a follow up treadmill stress test/ultrasound a few months ago. They are still very much in use and apparently with the new 3D Ultrasound the tests are better than ever. For me the follow up stress test was very reassuring. When I saw my cardiologist last month he reviewed those test results and a resting ekg done that day in his office and described them as "boring" then said "see you in a year."

There has been some comment here about advances in non-surgical treatment of coronary artery disease and there have certainly been advancements in that area. However for those of us with clogged arteries and no heart damage it appears bypass surgery can restore a level of physical function that in my case I find quite remarkable. My endurance is better than it was 10 years ago when I was only in my 60's. I especially notice it at altitude where I used to really struggle. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I weigh about 80#'s less than I did 10 years ago. While open heart surgery is a traumatic event that I don't want to experience again the results for me have been outstanding.

I had as interesting talk with one of my surgeons about the development of the heart-lung machine and the refinement of the whole process. It seems that 1977 was the crux year in that that was when they learned how to reliably restart the heart and also how to mostly eliminate clotting which caused post op strokes. It seems remarkable to me that this level of care is available to me in a small city (San Luis Obispo).

Yes, a couple of different chemical tests (one is done in nuke med).

These are non treadmill tests for people who physically cannot do those.

Drugs are used to raise the heart rate instead of exceise (treadmill).

I did a treadmill stress echo last year... passed with flying colors!

Was that before or after you had the work done?

Before... Kaiser tested and scanned me to determine what was the correct action to take. The stress (treadmill) echo was first, then the ct scan, as I recall... the heart mapping and ablation was last December. Kaiser uses the facility at Sharp Hospital.
