I got hit with a big surprise last week. Angina! Turns out my lateral anterior descending artery was 99% plugged. Climbing stairs, or anything besides, well, nothing brought on crushing chest pain. I’m 52 and in great shape but my cholesterol is high. So, they did angioplasty and put in a stent. No heart damage and the doc said the muscle is in great shape. Other than a sore wrist I feel amazing. Better than I have in quite a while, so it is something that I’d just gotten used to. But, when can I return to riding? I’m not on any blood thinners but I am on a platelet inhibitor (prasugrel) for a year and a doctor friend said to drain the tank on my woods bike and park it for a year. Too dangerous risk of internal bleeding from single tracking. I’m supposed to let the wrist heal for 3 days to 6 months depending on who you talk to. I also have a street bike and a dual sport and they are my main transportation. In fact, I left my SUV in Utah and flew home for the procedure, so I don’t even have a car! My wife does, but it’s going to be a pain. Any experts or experience out there with informed advice?
