No More Cycling for a Bit

Last Tuesday 28th Aug I had a heart attack.  A few days in hospital and 2 stents inserted into my heart and I am now in recovery mode.

I can't get anyone to tell me when I can get back on my trike again.  "Everyone is different" they tell me.  For now though it seems to be, take things easy and slowly.

Hopefully it wont be for too long though.

  1. I'm really sorry to hear this. Perhaps they've advised you to stop smoking. This will aid your recovery. Usually, here in the NE they have rehabilitation classes that people attend. I do hope you get well soon as I've missed your posts.

    1. Oh yes! Smoking is now a thing of the past. Haven't had one since the heart attack.

      Finding it very hard to quit the nicotine at the same time as going through the worry of what all this has brought, but I'm getting there.

    1. Awwww, Chilly matie. Should have expected you to be one of the first here. Missing you a lot around the web. Wish I knew what to say to bring you back to us all.

  4. Hi Sandy, I'm so sorry to hear about your heart attack. Please take it easy and do what the Drs. say. They will have you up and exercising before long.
    I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. Get well soon. The Dorset air should help. Take care and hope all goes well. Love from Spanish Pirate.

  6. Goodness! Sorry to hear your bad news. Well done on the smoking you're doing better than me (and as a nurse I should know better, tsk, tsk). I'm certain that very soon your trike will be playing an integral part in your return to tip top health :-) Take very good care of yourself and, on a brighter note, it might mean more blogging time. All the best.

  8. It will take a little time and after such a strain on the body it is hard to tell when you can go back to riding your bike as yes indeed everyone is different. Your body will tell you and right now it's taking it easy day by day.

  9. So sorry to hear this news Zan. With the money you are saving from not smoking you should be able to hire a car and driver by now, so what's stopping you?

    Remember THINK CASH NOT ASH and I'm going to copyright this it's my slogan for all you guys trying to quit.

    Add up what you would have spent on smokes in a day then multiply by a week then a year and post the answer, it's staggering what you have been giving to these same hypocritical Governments - what I want to know is why don't you all get angry with what these same Governments have been taking out of your hands while you smoke?

    Take care and plenty of rest and don't be in too much of a rush to get back into life just yet.

    Bye Red

  11. Thanks all so much for popping in and for your best wishes.

    I'm doing ok I think. Slowly building up each day walking a little further and spending less time resting.

    I have a cardiac support home visit at the beginning of next week, and hopefully by then she will be able to tell me when I can get back to riding.
