I'm having Angioplasty on Wednesday
I haven't been driving commercially for the last month, I'm taking some time to maintain the ticker.
I had a very mild heart attack a couple of years ago but now occasionally suffer from Angina so I'm off to have an Angioplasty procedure done on Wednesday.
It was about this time last year I first discussed the possibility of the procedure with my Doctor because I would have Angina symptoms whenever I was in very cold winter air. Nitroglycerin works wonders to instantly to relieve the tightness and discomfort I felt so I put it off a bit.
I've had all the tests now that verify Angina so my Cardiologist wants to put a stent in just to be safe.
The only thing that bothers me about the procedure is that they do it while you are awake, sedated but awake. My Mom had a similar procedure about twenty years ago and my Brother had it done last January and they both said it was no problem, didn't feel a thing, but it still freaks me out a bit.
I still don't think this procedure will make me like the cold weather though.
Wish me luck.
