I'm a fit 61 year old. Don't drink, never smoked. Regular excersise along with being a hands on builder. I'm not over weight and eat healthy.....so why me? Last Wednesday, I got pains in my chest while at work that I dismissed quickly as they went away within a couple of minutes. Got home at 5.00pm, and passed my wife as she left to cut someone's hair, (mobile hairdresser), by 6.00 the pains in my chest returned with vengeance. If she didn't walk in the door at 6.05, I wouldn't be writing this! The ambulance arrived & I was blue lighted to Papworth where I had a stem fitted in my Aorta artery. The next day I was told I had a heart attack of the worse kind, and was lucky to have survived. My Aorta ruptured and caused a blood clot in my heart. I'm waiting for results regarding heart damage. I was released after 3 days and recovering well. Hard for me to sit around doing nothing , but heeding the warnings. My business of 30+ years will suffer but hey, I'm still here. If it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.
