wish me luck
 
Heading in for a stress test in a few minutes. Seems I have angina and it's gotten bad enough to hold my riding back so now we'll see if I need to further improve my diet, have a stint put in, a quadruple bypass or just tossed out in the dumpster out back. It's going to be a very interesting next few hours. Could be something entirely different...we'll see.

I have had a couple of stress tests, didn't study for either and passed them both. :) Good luck with yours.

Good luck, bonne chance, buena suerte, viel Glück, καλή τύχη, and удачи!

May your stress-test be stress-free. May your blood flow unstintingly through your vessels. May your only bypass be of any need for surgery.

You will be just fine. Do what the doc sez (be a compliant patient) and ride brother ride. I had bypass surgery the first of the year and was on the trainer in four weeks, on the road in 12. Don't fret a thing. Cycling has already saved your life.

Dumpster option would be cheaper than a CABG, altho you might find a rotting cabbage in the dumpster.
Good luck.

Hope the test went well for you today.
I think Doctors need to find a better way to test people.
I have had a couple of (stress) tests
In my opinion They should call it
We are going to run you till you either collapse or die
and hope we can fix/save you in time

My comments here are not meant to be funny
the medical community needs to fiqure out a way
to test people without endangering there lives

Good thing you are doing this now, rather than ignoring symptoms and possibly dying!

Good luck. :beer:
I'm 68 and had the stress test a few years ago (while still living in ATL) on a stationary bike because I had knee surgery 3 months earlier and the sports med doc said no more running. He suggested the bike for the test.
I maxed out the test and all the way through the tech kept asking if I was ok. :lol: I told him I rode harder than the test effort when I'd rode to Stone Mtn.
Anyway, seems I have mild angina so the heart doc just said to take it slow till I got warmed up. So that's what I've done for the past few years and my riding has been great.
