For almost 64 years I have ate drank and did as I pleased. .ten days before my 64th birthday I went to the hospital,I couldn't breath. Quit smoking 15 years ago, that wasn't the problem. Turns out I'm A Fib.
For you people that don't know what A Fibrillation is , its when the top part of your heart pumps at a faster rate than the bottom half. In simple terms. Now blood thinners,plus a hand full of other pills .

Technically, the top two chambers of your heart (the atria) aren't pumping; they are just "quivering" in an uncoordinated mess....and that's the problem; 30% of your cardiac output comes from the "atrial kick' of the atria contracting.  Since the blood doesn't move except under passive filling, there is a tendency for blood clots to form, leading to strokes, pulmonary embolisms, and MI's.....all of which are worse than taking blood thinners!  While I'm sorry that you now have to be on medications, I am glad that it was found before one of those other incidents occured.....because you might not have been here to type your post.  Hopefully, with good medical management, you will be around for a lot longer and will still be able to enjoy all your previous shooting/hunting recreational activities with only minor adjustments.:thumbs:

Hang in there, REM700. Learned a couple years ago I am no longer invincible.

2 years ago at age of 55 found out I had prostate cancer. Went through the radioactive implant treatment. All seemed well until past December when discovered PSA on the rise again. Go back tomorrow AM to see what's up. Just have to keep that positive attitude!

That positive overcoming attitude is so very important. Saw my Dad just give up when he had heart trouble. His lifetime of smoking killed him early on. If you smoke please quit--it does things to your body that will cost you dearly later on. Had a defib put in last year. Was up a tree cutting a limb to give me a clearer shot from my stand, started climbing down, and the thing hit me. Knocked me to the ground and I sat there afraid that I had a heart attack-and body was still tingling. Turns out my over activity had fooled the defib and it paid me for it--lol. Hope your problems do not get you down gents--depression is a killer and optimism is a life giver.

Happy rat poison cocktail!
My wife has had a fib most of her life, even before 10 years old.
Really has no serious problem, other than occasional periods of shortness of breath.
She only takes the minimum dose of atenolol and digoxin.

Best of luck .

Agreed, it's never too late to start eating healthy. (Except beer :))
Last June had constipation. Turned out to be a 2 inch tumor in the lower colon blocking things up. Chemo/radiation followed by surgery then 8 more rounds of chemo and things are clear.
My biggest problem is that I became couch potato most of the time. Have to move around and eat better.
Get the colonoscopy. It's less invasive than the alternative.

rem700@ Good luck with your treatment. MIL has had afib for years & she's pushing 90. It's very controllable. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 09 & had Da Vinci surgery. Saw the Doc today & PSA is still "0". Take care of yourself.
