Bernie Sanders to postpone all campaigning following heart scare.

Wed Oct 02, 2019 4:09 pm

It looks like Bernie had to get two stents put in for a clogged artery that reared it’s ugly head during a recent campaign event.

I don’t like the guy but let’s hope for a quick recovery. Does anyone know how long a heart stent will keep you bed ridden?

Likewise, not voting for him but I wish him good health. If he has to go through a bypass operation it's hard to imagine he can continue his campaign. Recovery takes a long time.

Campaigning has to be an incredible amount of stress, maybe time to re examine strategy

I knew people that went to work the afternoon after they had one in the morning. At Bernie's age, he should just chill for a few days, maybe through Friday.

With the new collagen plugs that they use now for access to the artery, the recovery is pretty much 24 hours.

My father had a stent and was back riding his motorcycle the second day.

That is pretty crazy if you think about it. 24 hours and then back to enjoying life? You can’t beat that!

Considering the tough nature of being President and Bernie's health, he should drop out of the race.

The thread title is a little misleading. All of his campaign stops have been cancelled.... for a few days of rest.
Then they anticipate getting back on the road.

This can be done by entering through an arm or a leg, so it's not major surgery. My father had a similar operation once, and open heart surgery at another time (for something more significant) and the two are night and day.

Some think part of the stock market crash yesterday is due to this news, because it helps Warren and Biden.

Such a shame you couldn't find the decency to choose to steer yourself away from making such comments :roll:

Everything? Please elaborate, if you can tear yourself away from your egg salad.
