Wow - implanted 10-22-2019. Trying to heal physically and wrap my head around this new reality.
Prior to I was a racquetball competitor in pursuit of a league championship at my club . I played 3-4 days a week and was known for my mobility and stamina.
Ive been slowly sticking my toe in the water walking 2-3 miles a day . Yesterday I ran a little on the treadmill - I felt kind of scared .
I am wondering why my heart suddenly started beating so slow ? My concern is it’s a symptom of some other unknown problem that’s undiagnosed.
yes the symptom is fixed but is the cause ?
13 years ago at age 44 I required a quintuple heart bypass. Now this.
My goal is to return to competition on 12/4. Tonight I got on the court an hit the ball by myself ....it felt like I had never played before .... this may be a longer process than I thought.
I stopped hitting when I felt a twinge in my shoulder area....maybe thats a natural feeling from a nerve they cut or something ? I of course took it as a sign to stop.
This is definitely a “game changer “ .....do I need to back off ? So I need to step it up ?
what about pursuing the “why this happened “ answer ? Where do I start ?
