Good and bad news!

The good news is that I am having my shoulder surgery (right one) tomorrow morning....yes, I know it is a Saturday, but the hospital are trying to reduce the waiting lists! It had been delayed twice because I had had a chest pain that they needed to check out.

The bad news is that I do have some minor heart disease...ischaemia...and I thought it was all a fuss over nothing! It doesn't seem fair that this should happen to me as I have had a low fat healthy diet since 1989! I do not smoke! I am the perfect weight! and I only drink very moderately! so why me????? Genetics I suppose. If I hadn't taken good care of myself I would probably have had a heart attack a long time ago!

Good luck on your surgery! You'll be in my prayers for a speedy and healthy recovery. I'm so sorry to hear you have some ischemia, but so glad to know they caught it before a heart attack, sounds like they are being very careful and thorough with you. Stay healthy!

Oh yes, I wish you a very speedy recovery! I am sorry to hear about your heart, that must be very frustrating news. I have a minor heart condition so I can sympathize a bit...(especially concerning chest pain).
But just think of all the other problems we could have if we didn't try to live healthy!

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Best wishes with your surgery and your heart condition. My prayers will be with you. I used to tell my mother "these pills aren't helping." She would say, "you don't know how bad it would be without them!" She was right, of course. And you are right that it is a good thing you have been taking care of yourself!
