First off, prayers headed your way.

I haven't had the same heart issues you are going through, but I did have a heart attack and bypass surgery to repair 5 blockages(at 43 years old). 2 were 100%, 2 905 and one 75%. Docs were amazed I walked into the hospital. Anyway, I can't believe how much better I felt after the surgery, and I didn't know I was feeling bad until I couldn't catch my breathe and it felt like someone was trying to crush my chest. Totally changed my life for the better. Listen to what the docs say, and try to do what they recommend. My doctor told me straight up, no one will ever do everything I tell them. Do as much as you can, when you mess up or don't eat right or exercise, then let it go and get back on the wagon. Just don't stop trying. You'll get through it. Once you get used to the changes it really isn't that bad. I have so much more energy.

Praying for you. Your taking action that is what is important now. At our age we all know a few that have been through this. Seems in most cases catch it early , do what the heck the Doctors say. Get yourself in to shape and live to ride for years.
One that I knew well and will quote some what. Knew and old guy that live to be 90 smoking, this as he fired one up, a little beer never hurt no one as it followed the smoke with a beer . Not even the by pass saved him.
Wish you the best.

I was diagnosed with it almost two years ago right b4 Memorial Day weekend. Went through the shock therapy to take me out of Afib & two months later had the ablation. Changed my diet, got back into working out on a daily basis an so far life is better than what it was before. Also gave up alcohol, except for an occasional beer or ale. Anyway praying for ya bro.

Will definitely be praying for you!!! We need ya around to "bust our chops" and keep us in line. BTW: my father lived for 5 years with 18% overall heart funtion, passed at the age of 82, one month shy of 83. As early as they caught this sounds like you'll be fine. But still PRAYING.

I was in AFIB and had to get shocked out of it when I was in my 30's. You'll look like your wife tried to iron your birthday suit and left the iron sitting in one spot for too long... twice!

My mother had to be shocked out of AFIB twice in the past few years and has had stents in her heart for about 20 years now.

Keep a positive attitude and you'll do fine - otherwise you'll worry yourself to death.

In about 3 weeks I'll then get the catheter/camera into my heart to find blockages & place stents. // I was always confident in my Navy & LE days -- never afraid - concerned but never afraid. Now I'm afraid so I' asking for 2 things:

1. Your prayers please

2. If anyone on here is also in combat with this piece of shit cowardly disease then reach out please.

Ya'll are the best and I'm committed to be here to keep you safe & bust your chops.

DOOF... I have a very powerful prayerline in my church.. I'll add your intention and my prayer warriors will get to work.. Can you give me a first name and last initial. That's how we list the prayer requests.
