heart surgery

i had a heart cath and found out i had to have heart surgery. fortunately, the cath and surgery were before a heart attack and i have a 100% healthy heart. it has taken some changes to my diet and a new daily exercise regimen, but at least i came out of it without any damage to my heart. it all statrted with an ekg that wa sordered by my doctor. i didn't want to have it, but my wife insisted. i am pretty fortunate to be without heart damage after 7 bypasses. i just assumed that the assorted pains i had were associated with me getting older since i am now fifty nine years old. now i have a lot more knowledge about staying healthy, eating healthy and paying attention to what my body tells me.
