Loc: It's all about the location.
+1 on Rick and Micah. I'm glad you guys pulled through.

I worked with a guy a few years ago, he would have been in his mid 40's, he smoked and drank(I'm quite sure he smoked more than Rothmans as well) pretty much on a daily basis. One day he doesn't show up for work and we find out he had a heart attack the night before. Soooo....we all felt bad, and made a collection for him, asking everyone if they'd like to chip in a few $$ for him, as he'd be off work for a while. We raised around $450 and we sent one of the guys over to his house to present him with it during his recovery. I wish I could tell everyone that he took that money and bought himself a treadmill or something, but he spent it all on alcohol and smokes during his time off...Nice, Eh!!? Since then, I know he's had at least one more heart attack.

On a more personal note, my father has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and has come as a shock to the family because it doesn't seem to run in our family, going back generations. He used to smoke until his mid 30's(now in early 70's) and whether there is a link between prostate cancer or not, I don't really know. It sounds like they've detected it fairly early so hopefully it's going to be fine. These are the times I wish my parents weren't living on the other side of the country, out in BC.

I don't think prostate cancer is usually linked to smoking. But of course some people will say that smoking can cause just about any cancer. Still, I think there are usually other variables involved in prostate cancer. And yes early detection is the key to overcoming cancer. Both my cancers were in stage 1 when I was diagnosed, so that worked in my favor big time.

My dad is 64 now and has been drinking and smoking since he was 15 or so. Besides the two heart attacks (the first was pretty serious, they put stints in and all that good stuff. The second was just a mild one, I don't recall them doing anything too drastic to him that time) he's never had any health problems. Which is pretty ironic really, his father passed away at age 50, and most men in the family are lucky to see 60. What's keeping him going is beyond me?

I have a friend who had a heart attack a couple years ago while cutting his grandfather's lawn. He is extremely physically fit, no bad habits etc. and he was at the ripe old age of 28. Yep, you heard me right, 28.

It ended up that he had "wolf white parkinson's syndrome" and had to have surgery to correct his heart arrhythmia.

Shortly after that, my sister was experiencing heart arrhythmias and had to go and see a specialist. They diagnosed her with " wolf white parkinson's syndrome" and she had to have two heart surgeries because the first wasn't successful. Basically she has an extra nerve firing which causes her to get a tachycardia. Although the second surgery which was around 5 hours (she was pretty happy that she beat my surgery after my accident by ½ hour LOL) wasn't successful either but thankfully she hasn't suffered from any more arrhythmias.

Dang, sounds like a pretty rare disease to hit twice like that. I can't imagine being under the knife for 5 hours! Just what happened to you Wheelz? I realize there is probably a whole thread about it, just point me in the right direction.

Actually Micah, wolf white parkinson's syndrome is very common and under diagnosed. Heart arrhythmias are quite common and most people just "tough them out" without saying anything. The procedure that my sister went through is very common but she was awake for the entire 5 hours because she has to give the surgeon feedback while they are "zapping" different nerves in her heart via a catheter.

I have wanted to post my entire story for you guys pertaining to my disability but haven't because of the risk of boring some and coming across as being self centered. But to give you an abbreviated version, I had a bicycle accident when I was 18 which rendered me a quadriplegic.

Boring? Self centered??? Nonsense!!! Everyone has a story to tell, & I for one would love to hear yours! Quadriplegic eh? Damn that's pretty rough, I thought u were just confined to a wheelchair, not a quadriplegic. I was in a bycicle accidentwhen I was 17 that probably should have paralyzed me, but I got lucky. But I'm with you, if I couldn't do anything but sit around at least you can still enjoy a good speaker set-up. How do you type though, with your mouth? Or do you have one of those programs that types for you while you dictate?

I think Cam was trying to perform a "Triple Lutz" on his mountain bike to impress Teri.
