Most definitely do that. I had my first heart attack when I was 32, 1st bypass in April 2000 having been married to my sweetie for six months. Second heart attack in August 2007 just 4 days before flying to England to see my family, second by pass in Jan 2008 and 3rd heart attack in March 2009.
Now my heart is failing (I have heart failure due to all the damage) and it causes substantial pain. My next step is a pump or heart transplant. I say to everyone look after your heart. Even if you have no family history of heart disease (I do, most male relatives die in their mid 50's) be kind to your heart with exercise and get your blood chemistry checked every year. If anyone needs to talk about heart operations, attacks, heart failure etc PM me I will help with what I have lived with for many years. Happy New Year.
