I aint no sissy, but

Postby DanR » Sat Jul 26, 2008 3:03 pm

Next Thursday I'm going to Nashville to have 3 stents put in. I believe in the power of positive thought and a nod from my Cub friends sure would help. Hope to be up and runnin' in no time. Thanks ya'll.

Hi Dan,
Maybe not everyone will answer your call for a nod in writing; but usually people who have hobbies, (whether it be Cubs, dogs, horses, vintage vehicles, or whatever), are mostly sincere, humble people that care about others.
So if you count the numbers of those who review your message, please rest assure that they can place themselves in your shoes, respect your courage, & do offer you their best wishes.

Hope this helps!

Go for it Dan. I have never had the procedure but I know plenty who have and they are a lot more active now than before. And don't be afraid. Keep the positive thoughts and you will be fine. I had an angiogram a few years bact that scared the H outta me. Everything was fine and I would not fear it if I had to do it again.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Dan,

Best of luck to you. I've had several stents installed, all successfully and without problems. I'm sure yours will be the same.

No sweat. When I had my little heart episode 3 years ago they put a tiny stent in me. I missed 4 days of work. Only thing that held me back was waiting for the artery in my let to heal. I had to be careful for a couple of weeks. Absolutly no pain and they gave me something to relax me while I was having the procedure. I slept thru most of it. You will feel a lot better after it's done. Good luck and keep us posted.

Definitely.

I've been cardiac cathaterized twice. The only difference between this and getting a stent is that they didn't put in the stent. The rest of the poking around, measuring restictions etc. is the same. I didn't have a week warning before the procedures, maybe overnight. The worst part is the entry wound down south. You will not want to cough. If you have to, forget about covering your mouth, put some direct pressure on the wound!

Dan:

Btw. this is where this really belongs, for as you say... "I believe in the power of positive thought and a nod from my Cub friends sure would help.", then this is it.


Well, I am no sissy either, but I can tell you that I was very very afraid after my massive coronary event 4 years ago. I have never had stents .... a bit too far gone for that procedure, but from what I understand and from the testimony of a few of our friends here, it is basically like a catheterization. That was easy, like standing on your head easy... interesting too!. I was awake for the procedure, they gave me a little something to ease my nervousness and anxiety, then stuck the catheter up the A-line in my right wrist. I watched as the little camera travelled all the way to my heart.. and of course I got to see the blockages. I was lucky, they like my veins and arteries.. they are kind of pronounced, so I never had to have the entry wound in the groin. Course, that would have been a piece of cake compared to the foot long section of vein they removed from my right inner thigh... now that sucker hurt a mite :shock: :oops: :censored:

Aside from the reaction to ALL of the blockages,.. :big what: the doc said that my reaction was normal for those who have severe cardiac disease, but for the vast majority of those patients who would end up with a stent/stents implant procedure, the strongest reaction was intrigue.. as in wow this is kinda cool to be able to see your own heart.

So, I guess what I am saying is if you are at all curious as to how and what goes on inside the old ticker... this is like the Apollo landing but in inner space and you gots a front row seat. Relax, lay back, and enjoy the scenery. Do take it easy ok, and try to concentrate on the positives. You are going to feel soooooo much better after the procedure.

Our prayers will be with you and your family as you undergo this procedure. Keep us posted, and try to look at it as a grand adventure.. :!:

You have it, Dan. Here's hoping you and God can work something out that will please you both.

I can't really speak to heart problems since that's only one of the major health problems I've escaped, so far. The other is that I still have hair on the top of my head. :D Other than that, my thoughts aren't very positive.

I'm wondering if I'm to be cursed as my Pop was with a strong heart and circulatory system. He would have turned 100 in a couple months but he passed at 97. He spent a very long time simply staring at the ceiling. I hope for my family and I to be spared that! The next chapter begins next Tuesday.
