    81 mg aspirin no longer recommended?

    My Cardiologist has never said for me to stop taking it. What can it hurt? So why the uproar about it. If your Cardiologist days you don't need it the don't take it. I've been taking it for 14years I don't have a problem with it. Guess it's your own performance.

    I was on oxygen all the way up to surgery. Surgeon said it was too keep my lungs healthy and not put strain on heart. After surgery never had oxygen again. Never had a problem with my lungs since. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers Duffy.
