I just posted this on my Atrial Fibrillation listserv. Thought it might be of interest to some of you.
8 years coming up since my Dr. Natale ablation. No meds except adult aspirin daily, went from 1 year of continuous 24/7 AFib to NSR for 8 years now.
Here is my 6 months update.
So, I will be 74 in November.
I do 150 pushups (3 x 50) pushups, bench presses, planks, curls, rows, do the TRX, am doing a lot of balance exercises on the BOSU ball, balance board, etc., and a lot of stretching. About 180 minutes of exercise daily. I do regular (4-5 times per week) 20-40 mile bicycle rides this summer followed by a 40 minute swim, and lots of walking.
I am still active in the gospel singing group I started 8 years ago,
and my advocacy activities continue. [www.pad-co.info]
I m writing this to provide hope to some of you, and to show that a good life can still go on in your 70's
Best of luck to all of you.
