Well, it finally happened. I'm sitting in the hospital right now hoping to be released later today...for 2 weeks I could barely breathe...so this past Monday I came to the ER...my lungs were full of fluid and my heart was working at less than 40%...had a catheter yesterday and was told the 3 of my arteries are 90% blocked...I need open heart surgery...they're gonna crack my sternum...I just turned 63...I've never taken big dosages or used for long periods of time...always did my aerobics...funny thing is they put me on a heart diet which is bacon and sausage, fried chicken etc...ugh

Prayers sent. Thankfully technology has come a long way and hopefully you can easily find a qualified place to fix it.

Fried chicken and bacon is heart healthy now? I’d get a different doctor my brother.

I hope you have a safe and speedy recovery. This is something that scares me about my future too. I’ve been weight lifting for a long time, experimented with AAS and other rec drugs for too long of a time and drink booze to de stress and relieve anxiety for far too long.

I’m a walking heart attack I’m afraid.

Did you have cavities? If not, how bad was it really? Seriously though, you (and me) are at that age that something "major" happens. It doesn't matter what kind of lifestyle you lived, something always eventually happens. Regardless of how health conscious you've been.

I've told this story plenty of times, but I'm gonna tell it again. One of my grandmother's was scared to death of cancer. So every time she read something was good for preventing cancer, she started doing it. "Eat a tablespoon of peanut butter to ward off cancer. Drink a cup of tea to prevent cancer. Stand on one leg for 10 minutes every day to fight cancer." If she saw it, she was going to do it. She had an insane daily regimen of this, that, and the other thing. All to head off cancer. You know where this story is going. She went into the ER on a weekend with "stomach pains". It was bad. They did exploratory surgery on Tuesday. She was riddled with cancer. Everywhere. They just closed her back up. She was dead by Friday. At least she went quick and didn't fight it for months/years.

Live your life and enjoy it. You can be smart about it, but don't beat yourself up when bad things happen.

Oh, about an 8 ball once a week...it started getting bad when I was recovering from a ruptured quad tendon...I sank into what I now call the anger/depression roller coaster...I had set a goal of a 500 bench and I was only a few pounds away...at age 42 recovery from surgery was slow and I never got back to where I was...it happens to a lot of guys I've been told...ive been watching specials about pro wrestlers and it seems many of them did the same thing when their careers were over...

Tuff..
Wake-Up call..
But..You're still alive....
I totally agree with Mulit...

One of my C's is a birth defect, the other..who cares..
I did nothing to cause this..
Many times it's just a bad hand delt out..
Sometimes..why isn't important..
Only getting better and preventing any more damage..

PM..
Me if I can help in anyway..
Z...

My buddy just got cracked about a year ago. The guy thinks he's 18 again smokin a pack of cigarettes a day eating gas station food. Don't be that guy. Look at this situation like a second lease on life you're lucky to be alive.

Prayers for you man! I was just diagnosed w chronic and acute heart failure. I’m at 15% heart efficiency 3 months ago. Hoping to improve at next check up. Shit is scary as hell! I feel for ya dude. I don’t blame it on gear at all, but who knows. I was a solid 270 now I’m 235. I gotta get back in the gym as soon as the doc clears me. Like I said man prayers to you!

Yip entresto, eliquis, water pills, aspirin. Lol. Glad your better man. As soon as my cardiologist clears me I’m going back on TRT. No more heavy cycles for me, maybe test and npp here and there. Will see.
