Ok this isn't a post about my pacemaker but about milk. I know wierd huh. I have an artifial aortic valve and I love milk. I was told by the Nurse practioner that I can't have whle milk just 2% but not every day beacause it will do something with my cholesterol and it could cause blood clots. I have no idea how all that works but I said ok. I haven't had a lot of milk since my surgery. Well then My wife got my to try a starbucks moka frappuccino and I absolutley loved it. Well I couldn't find out what type or how much milk was actually in them. She buys the bottled kind in the store. So Idon't drink but maybe one every couple of weeks. Sorry I'm dragging on. The question I have is does any one here have a mechanical heart valve and what did your Dr. say about milk? I've had 3 differnet answers from 3 different dpctors about milk. 1 says don't drink it 1 says drink only 2% every once in a while and 1 says drink what you want with the exception being alcohol. They all say don't drink alcohol because of the blood thinner which is fine because I only had a drink maybe once a month at a gathering.
You know you're wired when...
You can hear your heartbeat in your cell phone.
I wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for pacemakers. I've had mine for 35+ years. I was fainting all of the time and had flat-lined also. I feel very blessed to live in this time of technology.
