As you age, you'll have to tackle problems as they come along. I sure did, when it came to a huge aortic aneurysm (the story is in the video linked here). With some changes to protect my stent, I managed to continue my sport. This approach is applicable to any health challenge you might face. I call it the OQS (Observe, Question the Obvious, then Solve) approach.
Here is what one Amazon reviewer had to say about my little book (I need to update it, a lot has happened since then, but I'm still training for Ironman nine years later):
This book will inspire you!

"You come back from the doctor and he tells you have a AAA aneurysm. What is that?!!! The author is a man of perfect health who did marathons and ironman triathlons. He finds out he has a ticking time-bomb in his belly ready to rupture. He covers the initial shock, how to handle the surgery event, post surgery and how to get your life back. You will find out how fortunate you are to find this aneurysm before it ruptures and you bleed to death inside your body. Knowledge is power and thanks to modern science, you will be saved by a dacron stent. The author will walk you through most of the questions that flood your brain after the doctor breaks the news to you. If your aneurysm is not in the danger zone (>5 cm), you will get tips on what you can do to help yourself keep the aneurysm in the safe zone. If are in the danger zone, you can look at some of the surgery options. He will talk about EVAR surgery where your surgeon doesn't have to cut you open, but uses this minimally invasive alternative with a high success rate. He will go over your attitude and how you can get back to doing most all the activities you did before. He will point out some extreme activities you should avoid. Lastly he will show how he was able to recovery his life back to the point where he could do the Ironman Triathlon again (swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles and running 26.2 miles). He provides links to other helpful sites. After you read this it will give you confidence that you too can get your life back. It worked for me. I am back running again and I love it."
