Arian Foster to have open heart surgery in a month



LINK


quote:

Foster is "considering a heart ablation" to help alleviate the problem that forced him to leave the Texans' Week 16 game with an irregular heartbeat. Foster says he has been dealing with the problem since he was 12 years old, but it's the first time it ever affected him in a game. He seems to think the issue is related to stress. If Foster does have the procedure, it shouldn't affect his offseason availability.

How the frick does open heart surgery not sideline him for the year, much less the offseason?

?@SportsCenter
Report: Texans RB Arian Foster likely to undergo heart surgery in about a month, after irregularities appeared in Week 16 (via NFL Network)



Hoping for the best with this dude. Following him on twitter, I realized that he is one of the most thought-provoking players I've ever seen in any sport.

Heart ablation isn't an open heart surgery. It's a cath lab procedure. Not too big of a deal relatively speaking.

I thin I read somewhere me & him have the same heart defect. Aortic Stenosis. But I'm pretty sure open heart surgery will definitely change his off season.

ETA: didn't read link. OP sucks with thread titles

I've had 3 ablations for irregular heartbeat. They go in through the femoral in your groin. Recovery time is about 3 weeks.


Open heart my arse

This. Outpatient procedure. OP is quite misleading.

Foster IS NOT having open heart surgery. He is having no procedure done.

You are an a-hole. The original link said that.

I would change it but since you decided to be a cool guy I will leave the topic up.
