The type I had was the widow maker. (left coronary artery) I recall being awake on the operating table when they broke the blockage loose they had to shock my heart back into rhythm, man I'm telling you that crap hurt like heck.

Loc: Indiana you hoser!!!!
Yeah if you think having a heart attack at 47 is pre-mature, try finding out you have two separate forms of cancer at the ripe old age of 35. I hadn't smoked in 12 years, I was excersizing regularly and treated my body like a temple... to say I was shocked would be an incredible understatement.

So just how long did it take you to stop smoking then Rick? Was the pain you experienced on the operating table enough to enable you to ditch the habit at that very second? Or did you still struggle for a while? This is what I was talking about with Patrick... it's all fun and games until you look death in the face. This is USUALLY enough to scare you straight. My father has had two heart attacks so far and is still smoking. He makes attempts every now and then to quit, but so far it hasn't stuck. It's a shame, because I know when he does pass I'll wonder how long he might have had if he'd been able to quit.

That was one of the things that went through my head as I under went chemotherapy... "how do I get cancer 12 years after QUITTING smoking, and here my father has smoked for damn near 50 years and never got it"? Sometimes it just doesn't make any sense.

Glad you're still with us too!! 35 is still much too young.

But you did smoke, so the previous damage just caught up to you, not that there are not other things that could have brought it on according to all those studies they keep doing....

Micah,

I never picked up a cig again after I got released from the hospital. My will to live was stronger than my desire for smoking.

I'm glad you're doing ok.

But, still old enough to pick on for being an old fart. (misery loves company)

Glad things worked out for you, Wid.
