This chapter presents the author's account of his heart attack and surgery in 1992. The night before undergoing bypass surgery, the author wrote down his thoughts to complete his unfinished autobiography in case he did not survive the procedure. He had been warned that an angioplasty was only successful in about 70 per cent of patients and that he would know the results within six months. During the next few months, the author maintained a low-calorie, low-fat diet and went down to 140 lbs. His report ‘What Is It Like To Have An Angioplasty?’ was published in the Journal of the Royal College of Physicians of London in 1993.

Keywords:   bypass, surgery, autobiography, angioplasty
