I've come to the conclusion that being active and fit only buys you a little more time. Genetics is the driving factor for diseases such as heart disease, cancer, etc.

ETA: being active and fit will also help you in your fight against these diseases, God forbid that you get anyone of these diseases.

He probably wanted to get it done before his medical coverage changed over to Obamacare.....

Not really a major procedure these days. The Cardio man can be in and out in a few minutes. The holding of pressure on the insertion site of the stent takes longer to endure.

The title is misleading. It's not surgery, just a simple outpatient procedure. You're confusing it with a coronary bypass, the surgery Bill Clinton had.

Not to be confused with the surgery Hilliary had, which was an addadictomy.

All surgeries are not the same however GWB's procedure is still a surgery.

I've had this operation. Quite amazing procedure. A tube is inserted through a hole in your inner thigh, and the surgeon watches on a monitor while he routes the stent with a tube through your body up to your coronary artery.

Recovery is amazingly swift except for the hole in your leg... pressure must be maintained there while you lie still on your back for about eight hours so you don't bleed to death through your leg... and that becomes really painful.

George will feel amazingly better tomorrow. I didn't realize how crappy I was feeling until I got my two stents.

So was I. Narrow arteries are genetic.

No, it's not a simple outpatient procedure. It's not radical cut and stitch surgery, but it does require some patient room monitoring and recovery.

I can only imagine the ticking time bomb I have in my cardiovascular system (family has history of heart disease).
