A very Happy Birthday to you. It's good to hear there are more and more of us being around longer - you have a few years on me. It gives recent "joiners" more hope when they find out a long life can still be had providing you behave.

Here's to many more.

Prada can I ask you a question had HA last year... stent... did you rely on your cardiologist much ?

Prada47 in reply to SmokeAKipper


From having my HA in 1982 I never saw a Cardiologist or took a pill until 2015. I never had a stent in 1982 they didn't really exist then. That's how I probably ended up with a 100% blocked RCA

From 1982 I worked up until retirement in 2005 I worked in some pretty remote environments Middle and Far East ending up in Mississippi for almost 3 years.
