I have an appointment with the surgeon in 5 days.
I am assuming that they will have me in for the bypass surgery within the next 2 weeks.
I’ll be glad to start on the road to recovery.
Over the last few years I have noticed some signs of cardiac issues.
I started getting short of breath about 10 years ago.
About 2 years ago my energy in the gym started fading and every month it got worse.
Over the last year every month I have noticed a decrease in energy.
I get short of breath very easy.
In fact I thought I needed to do more cardio and when I did I would feel worse.
I’ve been steadily losing muscle.
My walking around weight is usually a muscular 220 lbs.
Over the last 12 to 18 months my weight has been dropping.
This picture was taken this morning and I weight 195 lbs.
I don’t typically do shirt off pictures but I will while I am going through this in the hope to encourage others and hopefully save some lives through awareness.
I will do regular posts with pictures, meal plan and exercise routines so follow along.
I’m doing this to bring awareness to this sleeping giant in many.
If I were you I would be dead.
What I mean by that is I know my body very well and I am close friends with my cardiologist.
If I left this in the hands of any other doctor with the insurance companies dictating health care I would be dead by summer.
