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.
