    OrangeTheory?

    Thanks for the feedbacks, I am thinking along the same lines. I have less of an issue being competitive with the person next to me, and often throttle back when things get too intense. I like that I can see the feedback on the screen and pair that with how I am feeling. In talking to my doctor...

    Long time, no posting

    People sure are strange with the change blame game, hope you are healing from all the wounds! Keep hanging in, something fab could be lurking!

    Volunteer Roll Call

    Hey all, been a minute since I have been here, had my OHS to repair my BAV in Jan 2017, been doing pretty well since. I wanted to chat a bit about volunteering on the cardiac ward. I had a lovely visit from a volunteer who had OHS when I was recovering and I recall that I loved seeing him and...

    OrangeTheory?

    Hi Y'all...used to be more active around these parts, then the surgery and I haven't been around for a while. Hard to find communities for us heart patients though!

    I survived! So happy! :)

    When to call the doc

    Hey, I am 80 days out. I never had much sharp pain...lots of aching and discomfort...I got the ribs/lungs thing...just try to realize you were opened up and it takes a while to settle. I think the rehab is a must, I get lots from it, beyond the actual exercise, it's nice to be with a group...

    A whine about wine...try not to judge!

    The Booze has been around for quite a few years, not to mention other forms of relaxation/escapism or whatever you call it in your sphere...might be a reason for that? My .02? If your behaviour is ok, who cares what you decide to ingest, barring self harm of course...if it ain't deal with the...
