This blog has evolved since it was initiated in response to my abdominal aortic aneurysm surgery in August 2010. The discovery of my aneurysm, and the consequent aortic stent graft placement, scared me to death, so at that time I was focused on reaching out for someone to talk to about my situation. Those days are now, fortunately, behind me and I have overcome fear of stent failure with the help of a number of supportive people with similar issues, who I located through this blog. I am now converting athletewithstent.com into an information resource for anyone interested in developing their own program of safe exercise for better health. Emphasis is placed on endurance sports with special reference to health challenges that might cause people to give up the dream of being an athlete. It is never too late to train, and we can all be athletes in our own way, just for the joy of it. The trick is to develop a balanced exercise philosophy.
I am supporting these efforts by marketing a number of downloadable e-books or white papers, which provide a synthesis of subjects that interest me. Two such products are available, including guides to aortic surgery recovery and fixing plantar fasciitis.
Happy training, my friends, and whatever you do, don’t become a prisoner of your particular health challenge. Regular exercise helps with almost any problem in life.
