I am still shocked that I had to undergo triple bypass surgery on July 27, 2010. I am 54 years old, female, weight at time of surgery was 142 pounds and I'm 5'8". I generally exercised moderately and watched my calorie intake before surgery. I didn't have any time to think about my surgery as I failed an Echo Stress test and an angiogram showed I had more than 90% blockage in three arteries. I was wheeled off to surgery that very day. I don't want to take antidepressants because it's just one more medication I will be taking. Now taking metoprolol and crestor as well as vitamins.
