It was my first visit to a cardiologist for check up @ Mount Elizabeth last week.
A suspected narrowed blocked vessel has been identified.
Recommendation is to do a Angiogram so to be sure as I may inherit some heart problem from my family, i.e. dad and grandpa.
So, I have opt in for the Angiogram tomorrow. Hope that all sort of problem can be identified clearly and fix it as early as possible.
It's been 10 years since I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and had medication since, and it's been 6 years that I have moderate high blood pressure symptoms. Thank goodness, I have been staying quite healthy for the past 10 years. Okay, almost die in the Tsunami @ Koh Phi-Phi there.. So, you are re-borned with different views of life after that. :) When it is your time, you cannot avoid it. So, you don't see me stop eating. :) But try to do as many deed as possible. Be a good person always.
So, tomorrow will be my first hospital stay and first surgery (although is just a half day surgery...), yes, I had never gone into a hospital for any surgery before... If I am lucky, will need to monitor every year. If slightly not lucky, then, balloon needed to be installed. Still a day surgery. :) No big deal. :)
Some thoughts ....
1. If you are slightly fat, and you don't do much exercise, I suggest you do full medical check up once a few years to check up. Especially those who has some bad gene in the family. :) Don't wait.
2. I know some of you saw me eating like that... but I can assure you, I also exercise quite often, as well as I drank the 5-Greens juice almost daily basis since 5 years ago... , i.e. Apple, Celery, Cucumber, Bitter gourd, green pepper. I also drank Japanese vinegar on daily basis. So, sort of compensated the bad cholesterol effect. :)
3. I think after tomorrow, I will tell you what is my new resolution of the year, and you may or may not see me eating so much un-healthy food in future. :) I will tell you after the surgery.
Cheers and wish me luck tomorrow. :)
