Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection

I’m going to be doing great soon

January 9, 2016

I am a healthy, fit and active 49 year old male. Zero negative heart-health markers. I had a SCAD triggered heart attack on 12/26. I plan on a full recovery — just drugs, laying low and acupuncture. No stent. Still have some mild chest pain — but hoping it will completely go away soon.

I plan on continuing to live a healthy, active lifestyle once this is all done — biking, swimming, skiing, etc. This is not a death sentence — it’s a nice little wake up call to continue to take care of myself, love life and be appreciative of all the good around me.
