  The technology keeps improving, Niels, and drugs improve all the
time. I had the same heart attack that killed my father, but in the
same 5 days it took us to put him in the ground, I was out and about,
cured. You're smart to see another cardiologist.

  I read your bit about beta blockers. I'm on them. They can cause
arrythmnia, and it sounds like you had it, but there are two other
types of BP pills now, plus the nitrates that open arteries.
