Instead of woodworking, this one has kept me out of the shop long enough. In the morning I’m getting myself some more stents in my heart. At least i hope I am, the Drs. are afraid they may have to switch to bypass in mid stream. The artery is in pretty bad shape with 4 blockages in one section. While your making saw dust tomorrow, keep me in mind. Thanks, PaPaDan

Dan, I knew you had been out for a while. Sorry about the health thing. But, you know, that stuff is a pretty common procedure now….maybe not for you but, those doc’s know what they are doing. You’ll be on my mind. Looking forward to seeing your comments again.

papadan, My thoughts and prayers will be with you. I’m sure you’ll come through just fine. Those Drs. do have it down to just a routine type thing now a days. Even if they do the bypasses, it shouldn’t be such a big thing! They wont let you watch the bypasses like they do the stents! In other words you wont remember a thing! The great thing is you’ll feel better after the procedure than you have for a long, long time. Wishing you the best.

I had stents and angioplasty done in the year 2000. In my cardiac rehab program, a lot of the old-timers told me that I’d have been better off just getting bypass surgery. They were right! Seven years and a new heart attack later, my entire right coronary artery, where the stents were implanted, had become ‘diseased’ in the words of my surgeon. Though the recovery was difficult, bypass is definitely the way to go. Best of Luck to you!

I just got word about Dan.
They were successful and only used one stent. He’s recovering now.

Happy day!
