    Hi, just wanted to tell you I had triple heart bypass and entered a cardiac rehab program with exercises three times a week,heart monitoring and diet reviews. Its a great way to feel better and be joined with others in a similar situation. Feel great now and really appreciate the program benefits.

    Living with Heart Disease

    Coronary artery disease (CAD)

    CAD is a chronic disease with no cure. When you have CAD, it is important to take care.....

    This is especially true if you have had an interventional procedure or surgery to improve blood flow to the heart../It is up to you to take steps.....

    Recognize the symptoms......

    Reduce your risk factors......

    Take your medications......

    See your doctor for regular check-ups...

    Most important, coronary artery disease (CAD) is a lifelong unpredictable (may/can exhibit periods of stabilization, acceleration and even sme regression) condition requiring a continuum of care.

    Best of luck down the road of life.

    Take care,
