Good news for heart and stroke patients

Loyola cardiologist John Moran, MD, says for patients with a familiar partner and setting, sexual activity is safe and no more strenuous than golf.

I guess that means nothing too exotic or exciting.

If you have few or no symptoms during normal activities, sex is safe, too.

In fact, sex and intimacy are important.

I would add—so is overcoming fears and misgivings. Those can cause stress, too.

And if you are recovering, ask about using Viagra or the like--I think there are some caveats.

Now—the question remains—sex or golf?

That may not be the easy call you think it is.
