    Back home at last, been told it's a month of work no heavy lifting, have had one stint fitted no probs with that, had a scan on the heart and they could not see any damage, so that's all good pills for the rest of my life, i can live with that, i think the worst bit is the groin were they do it all from, that's really bruised i think it will be a couple of weeks till that goes down, then i might be able to get my leg over
    the bike. doctors have said exercise but don't over do it, they say the bike is good but take it easy for a bit, so it's all looking promising will keep you updated on progress,
    the good thing is i can now watch the TDF live so it's not all bad.:whistle:

    Good to hear of someone recovering from a heart attack.

    I was ordered off the bike for 3 months - did have a bypass operation though.

    I was also told that cycling is one of the best forms of exercise once you've had one, and have since been told to push it as hard and often as I like.

    middleagecyclist Call me MAC

    One stent, no damage and on medication which significanlty reduces chances of any future event. I'm not suggesting you are lucky by any means but it could be so much worse. The nastiest type of MI as far as i'm concerned is the one which kills off a big portion of the main pumping chamber. It leaves the survivor a 'cardiac cripple' - unable to climb stairs without stopping for a rest and no prospect of any significant recovery.

    When I have my MI I want one with your outcome or a really big one that finishes me off nice and quick (preferably the former) :sad:

    Enjoy watching the TdF!

    middleagecyclist Call me MAC

    Was it a car driver? They get there sooner than the buses on the whole. The dispatch is made as soon the phone callers whereabouts are verified and the call is triaged. When chest pain is mentioned it gets a high priority and they are on the way while further details are taken. The car drivers tend to park up in convenient locations so they can get to most places in the quickest time possible.
