Hi, I am 35, and have been diabetic for almost 20 years. I was an idiot and smoked on and off for a number of years. I recently went to my doctor with chest pain and shortness of breath. That led to a bunch of tests, which resulted in an Angiogram, showing major blockage in my arteries. I had no choice but to have a quadruple bypass. I have been home from the hospital for two days now and feel pretty good. I just get tired very fast. What scares me the most is that I have a 13 month old son, and I want to be around for him. I am hoping this was a wake up call, and will be a new chapter in my life, and my life will only get better. I am just worried that I will need further surgery down the road as I get older and that scares the hell out of me. Any words of wisdom??
