I had a triple bypass op four years ago, and up until now I'd thought that my heart was undamaged, that it was just the plumbing that needed to be fixed. So it came as rather a shock, after a night in hospital recently to "treat" and monitor an af episode, to think that my heart is damaged... More investigation to follow, but in the meantime I want to take steps to minimise having another attack. I shall avoid stress (yeah, right!), alcohol, late nights and make sure I drink plenty of liquids (water!), exercise and TRY to maintain my sense of humour. Any other sage advice? Nice to hear from others, if you can spare the time. Thanks!
