After a Heart Attack, I Changed My Diet, Shocked My Cardiologist, and Avoided Bypass Surgery
On June 14, 2014, while on a fishing and camping trip with my son, I had a heart attack. I was 53 years old. We drove to a small-town hospital and were immediately flown by helicopter to a hospital in Kyle, Texas. The cardiologist there placed three stents in my arteries and got the blood flow going again to save my life. He then told me I would need quadruple bypass surgery as soon as possible (within six months to a year). Prior to that day, I had shown no symptoms of heart disease.
