It's about time!!!!

I was lucky - at my cardiac rehab clinic there was a guy who worked there who was a competitive swimmer - so on my first day there after a nurse told me to slow down "you're walking too fast..." - this guy and the other head nurse took over (thankfully) and planned out all my workouts to get me running again!

I really did enjoy my time at rehab and most of the other patients were super but there were also "the comments" from some patients "you're too young to have a heart condition" - "why are you here" - "did you really have OHS? Show me" - it was interesting!

It did take them a long time to come around. When I had OHS done last century, knowing my background, the cardiologist said rehab would be a waste of time.

I had thought that rehab would be a waste of my time and money...but signed up anyway to CMA with races and running in general. Fortunately there were a couple of therapists there that didn't have a problem with getting me safely back on the road. So from a conditioning point of view one could say its a waste of time/money but from a pysche stance...it was worth it. Just my two cents worth

Exactly my thoughts and experience. I dropped out once I was reasonably confident I could rev my engine without any catastrophic consequences. Toward the end of my hospital-based rehab, I used to stop at the gym on my way home for some more treadmill work (followed by a 2 our nap!). I am pleased to see that some of professionals are starting to recognize what we regular schmoes figured out on our own.
