I am a 42 yr old guy with type I for 32 years. On pump. Had heart attack 6 yrs ago. I have 8 stents in my heart. I take about 25+ pills a day. Also severe depression and cronic pain. Also my 9 yr old daughter has had type I for 3 years. Some days life really sucks. Thanks for listening. Robert.

Hey Robert glad you are here. I can relate to your heart troubles as I have as many blocked arteries in my heart as I do open ones. Have got a lot of colateral bypass going on in there too. Doctors would not put in any stents though.

Why no stents? I've had 8 heart caths. My heart attack was "a wido's maker". It stopped and was restarted then a flying trip to the cath lab.

They said I didn't meet the criteria and when they are 100% blocked and new vesales vave grow aroubd the blockage they said no need. Never felt any heart attacks if I have had them.

Adjiter, my entire right side was 100% blocked. I woke up at 7am 5.5 yrs ago and didn't feel right. Within ten minutes I couldn't breath, arm pain, and crushing chest pain. My wife said i was ghostly gray. I waited for my wife and daughter to get dressed and then we all went to the ER. Yes, I drove. I stopped breathing at the hospital. All of my cardiac tests came back screaming heart attack. Then it was a sign from tv nurses and doctors on the cart, running done the hall. I ask for my wife and priest but they said no time. I was in cath over six hours with two teams working on me. Not bad for a 36 yr old. I hate the big D. Everyone please take care of ur selves. Thanks for reading. Robert.
