Damn! You had bad genes passed on. When folks have that kind of heart history before the age of 45yrs, it’s not something you did to yourself by overeating, not exercising and all that.

What is a myoblast transplant? Sounds like they transplanted some heart muscle cells into you. How did that work?

400! Blimey.

Mine is 268 and the doc has me on Lipitor.

You experiencing any side effects on that one?

Thanks.

Sorry for the late reply, just came across it.

They took muscle tissue form my leg about the size of a walnut and grew it in a lab and then injected it into my heart.

I never felt the heart attack, so it was never treated. Half of my heart muscle was dead. Unlike most muscle cells, heart muscle won’t regrow or repair itself, hence the need for the transplant.
Been three years now and I’m still doing ok.
I hope the next advance in this field is for spinal cord growth.

Where was that done? If in Taiwan, at which hospital and who was your doc?
