Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

C'mon Doc! That would be the good thing to hear, not the worst! :) You are right Ajay, but I wrote it from a physician's perspective. All doctors hate to be proven wrong and I will use my mentor, former Chairman and former Dean to illustrate this point. I had been playing tennis regularly with this...

Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

Best of luck on your surgery! When you check back into the forum in a week or so, Somdev's India would have crushed Tpe in tennis and Dhoni's India would have reminded the Kiwis why they are named after a fruit!!! Thanks Arjun and everyone else for their best wishes. The last time I was finally tak...

Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

Gautam, Take advice from a good Internist or a cardiologist and not from someone who takes care of children with serious infections :D . HDL (good cholesterol) can be raised by doing regular exercise and dietary changes. If it is still low, a physician may prescribe you a medicne that raises your HD...

Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

Hi Omkara, The good news is that those people who have a strong family history of heart attacks (felt to be genetic in nature) can reduce their risk significantly by eliminating other risk factors of heart attack. My suggestions would be: 1. Get regular check-ups from a physician who is an expert on...

Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

The last thing I expected was a heart attack. When I went to the hospital with heart attack on Jan 10, 2009, my cholesterol level was 150 and the ratio of good versus bad cholesterol was well below normal. My triglyceride level was only 50 and I walked 2 miles a day, went to the gym and played tenn...

Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

I am back in Tulsa for the past few days and it sure feels great to sleep in my bed after 5 weeks of stay in two hospitals. Yesterday I went for my first cardio rehab session at my hospital. Once I am strong enough, I will undergo heart surgery to repair the septum between the two upper chambers and...

Hi Varma,

ICU Stay in Tulsa: After angioplasty and the episode of V-tach (ventricular tachycardia), I went into cardiogenic shock (heart was unable to maintain adequate blood pressure) and my kidneys stopped working.

Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

Rightly said Doc. However, one question remains - who is this "I" who is going to make it?? Is it the body, mind, intelligence or something else... With due respect to you, your profession as well as my wife (also a physician), modern science has not yet reached the point where the differentiation ...

Re: Doc's Near Death Experience

Thanks for your kind words and prayers. One week back I could not even stand and today I just came back to my room after doing 2 hours of physical training (riding a stationary bike, doing hand bike, climbing stairs, walking, light weights, etc). My wife and I used to do an hour of treadmill/station...
