“...any time a person is sedated and unaware...it is medically called surgery...”

So, my colonoscopy was a surgery?

This year, they did the heart cath through his wrist

...that’s actually quite rare, and even if the decision is through the wrist, the groin area is prepared as well, as the passage to the heart is more direct...

...my stent was deployed six years ago, to open the posterolateral artery which had completely blocked...needlessly I thought, I had to spend a night in the cardiac unit, where they come in every hour on the hour to draw blood, and then say in the morning, ‘Did you get any sleep?’...heh, hospital humor...

“So how do they get it in? Through his nose?”

Angioplasty.....through a vein in the groin area. I had it done about 15 years ago.

“any time a person is sedated and unaware”

I was wide awake for the three stents that they inserted into my heart. I watched the procedure on the large-screen, real-time x-ray.

“This is a surprise given the former president’s regimen for exercise and outdoor work.”

Do a Google search for “Doctor James Fixx”. Genes are involved, not just health regimen. Someone in his family, even from generations ago, had heart problems.

I consider getting a haircut a ‘surgery’. But that’s just me!

“I was really suprised to hear that Dubya needed a stent.”

“Genes” is the answer. Someone in his family, even generations ago, had heart problems.

When everybody does something it’s hard for the participants to see what they are doing from the outside perspective.

RE: When everybody does something ...

Exactly what is that “something” you are referring to?

Thanks SeekAndFind. Apropos of nothing, there certainly are some idiots on FR.

My grandfather had a stent placed in an artery at age 90. A week later he was back to his old ball-busting self, albeit quite a bit ornery because he didn’t like being in the hospital.

Through a catheter? Hell, might as well be considered torture.
