Another Uncle Phil Medical Adventure

Postby Uncle Phil » 21 Feb 2017, 00:53

It seems like I've been having more medical adventures lately than motorcycle adventures. I thought after my aortic aneurysm repair in September, I was done for a while. But around Christmas when I was working out, I felt a severe pain in my left leg after what felt like water running down it. Turns out the major artery is completely blocked by a blood clot behind the knee. So after being tested more than a prize hog at the fair for heart conditions and such (Cat scans, MRIs with chemical stressing, down the throat sonograms, wearing a heart monitor, etc.), I finally have surgery scheduled this Friday, 2/24/2017. From what I know, the surgeon will have to do a bypass like they do for blocked heart arteries which means stripping a vein out and installing it to bypass the clot. Looks like I'll be the 'horse pistol' (hospital) for several days afterwards. I'd really like this to go well as I'm rather fond of my toes and my foot on the left side for sure (and the right side as well)! So all prayers and thoughts will be much appreciated as the drama continues ... This sure is putting a cramp in my riding!
