cvcmanUser Since: Jun 2013Posts: 3My history...3 yrs ago biking had pressure in chest. Cardio Dr did echo stress sent me for angio..98% blocked LAD....did 4mm medicated stent...went back to my bike and running.. I run about 25 miles a week and bike 20 - 30 miles on the non running days...
My latest blood work is LDL=65 HDL=120..Trygl.= 50 bp is 120/80 resting hr is 48...I run 5-1/2 miles at a time...I do the bike and run 7 days a week..I am 5'8" tall male and weigh 140 pounds...Dr said im less than 10% body fat and he thinks im fine...had echo 6 months ago he said "perfect" he is my cardio expert

I get PVC's somethime when running sometimes when resting etc..he said " normal" now I did get them when I was eating caffine with coco and coffee...not doing that anymore...I do get dehydrated from time to time..

My fear is there is something wrong with my heart...I know I have the stent and I think about it daily but do not obsess on it...I never get pain hen running or biking since the stent....
sometimes I get skips every other beat for a second or two and if I cough they stop...

Is this something to be concerned about ?? My Cardio Dr is VERY good and he said 5 months ago when he did my echo it was "perfect" as was my ekg...blood work from last week he a=said was the best he has seen in his practice...does this mean anything ?? Sometimes the skips are worse when im hungry or thirsty ???

Could be because we're still quite new. We do tend to get a few sign up, but then never return. Also, the 17 views could just be passers-through.

As far as your bloodwork is concerned, I to have normal electrolyte balances and blood pressure but have recently had quite a relapse of ectopics. One interesting post that might be worth reading (if you haven't yet) is here.

I can't comment on the stent because I don't know much about it, but ectopics are nearly always benign especially if you have a cardiologist confirming there are no underlying issues. 15 years ago when my ectopics first kicked off, and after several A&E visits, I was convinced I would be dead within a year, but I'm still here. Nevertheless, they still get me down and cause me a great deal of anxiety so I totally sympathies with you.
