Fairly fit guy of 66 used to walking between 6 and 12 miles most days, DIY, gardening, playing with grandkids etc. After a coupla day playing golf with a nights heavy drinking, woke on Sunday morning preparing for another round when I experienced what I thought was severe indigestion. 3 hours later I'd had a stent fitted to unblock my lower right coronary artery. Apart from tubes and monitors dangling, I felt better immediately. Prior to the problem, I was on Statins and BP reducing pills, a smoker and an iffy diet, although not overweight. I had obviously pushed the envelope believing that controlling BP and Cholesterol, I was OK. Discharged after 2 days, prescribed 5 pills a day but feel better than I did before my problem. Sleeping better, not so tired during the daytime. I feel I could return to my activities now but realise frustratingly that I need to pace myself. I count myself lucky.
