Sex ok after heart attack

Apparently you can safely have sex after a heart attack:

Good news: Sex is safe for most heart patients. If you’re healthy enough to walk up two flights of stairs without chest pain or gasping for breath, you can have a love life.

That advice from a leading doctors’ group addresses one of the most pressing, least discussed issues facing survivors of heart attacks and other heart patients.

In its first science-based recommendations on the subject, the American Heart Association says having sex only slightly raises the chance for a heart attack. And that’s true for people with and without heart disease.

Surprisingly, despite the higher risk for a heart patient to have a second attack, there’s no evidence that they have more sex-related heart attacks than people without cardiac disease.

Many heart patients don’t think twice about climbing stairs, yet many worry that sexual activity will cause another heart attack, or even sudden death, said Dr. Glenn Levine, lead author of a report detailing the recommendations and a professor of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Sheesh some people…I’d risk a heart attack for a root any day of the week.

    Sex for men with a `dicky ticker’ is only dangerous if they have it with someone elses wife and get too excited.

    • Politically Unstable

      Its also dangerous if they get caught

  • Warehi

    Cameron you are all class. I imagine that you would also talk to women about a “root”

    • Spanishbride

      No he is all talk. He is a one woman man and he minds his manners and his language every time he risks a heart attack with me, which is often ;)

  • Warehi

    Thank God for that.Make sure you keep him in line!

    Question on Kosh’s behalf (because he’s too shy to ask)…does masturbation count?

    • Steve and Monique

      If that was the case Kosh would be the walking dead.

        He’s already the walking braindead anyway. Thinking that he’s producing fear amongst us just goes to show the top floor has no tenants.

    How cute, more personal attacks. My my the right must be very scared.

  • Steve and Monique

      And yet you still quiver.

        Are you a Scout- master as well Kosh?

        Kosh you really need to learn the distinction between being a joke and being source of fear. See, being a left wing, union hack, teacher, makes you a joke around these parts, because your views are so divorced from the cold hard reality of the world. Some people win, some people lose, some people work hard, some are lazy like stevedores and teachers.

        My my croc, are you trying to imply something? Why dont you be a real man and just say what you are thinking.

      • Kosh103

        Super guest, you do understand I consider it a POSITIVE to be held in contempt by the right.
