Salty, I wish I had a chance to get the stents. I had a quadruple bypass in 2010 and am doing well. Back to playing hardball and ran a 5k in April.
As for your brother, seems like he was already in good shape and eating well, so, he's one step ahead of the plan. At least he doesn't have to go home and change his lifestyle drastically. It sounds like his wife caught it in time. I hope he's fine. It sounds like he got great care, and with the stents, the recovery is easier than getting opened up. Good luck.
As for you, if you have a family history, and are not in shape and not eating healthy, it's time to think about some changes.
