Yesterday was the first century ride I did since I had 5 Bypasses done on March 31st. I had stayed in good shape my whole life and have been married to a dietitian for 34 years so my diet not terrific has been monitored for many years. When I asked my doctor why I had clogged arteries he told me bad genes! Like I said I had stayed in pretty good shape over the years and had ridden 6000 miles the year before the surgery and about 5 or 6 centuries within the past year before the surgery. When my doctor looked at the pictures of my heart after cardiac cath. I was told my heart had an excellent blood flow due to my diligence for exercise. I started back on the bike 8 weeks after surgery. Yesterday I rode in a group of about 50 people around Lake Okeechobee in Florida with 99 percent humidity and temps around the mid 90's. The ride was actually 115 and I made it feeling kind of beat up after, but finished with the first group. I am curious if any one else has had this surgery, because I would be curious to know how they are doing and if they would have any questions for me. most people I know who had this surgery were not exercising as heavily as I had been or are dead now.
