You can read about my heart attack experience here:

http://heartattackrider.wordpress.com/2009/07/24/34-years-old-who-had-a-heart-attack-has-3-stents-can-he-still-snowboard/

I feel fine, passed my stress test, have a 65% ejection fraction, do not experience symptoms when exercizing.

What worries me is I have had shortness of breath since my heart attack that is on and off (same kind of feeling I had for a few days before the attack), my heart rate reduction after exercise seems to take to long, and my original attack was triggered by intense cardio exercise training at the gym. My Dr. says everything's great, not to worry and I am good to go snowboarding and hiking whenever I want. I live in constant fear that there is another vulnerable plaque ready to explode and kill me at any moment, especially if I go snowboarding or hiking again.

I'd love to know your opinion.
