    Honestly, if I had a heart condition, I'd probably skip the games. It's pretty amazing that he does so well in an extremely demanding job.

    Re: Good article in NY Times about Fred's heart condition

    It makes me appreciate him all the more. I was diagnosed with a thoracic aneurysm a couple years ago, but it's very minor and I just have to get a CT annually to keep an eye on it. Hopefully mine will never need to be repaired. Feels good to not be alone.

    Re: Good article in NY Times about Fred's heart condition

    I remember one time when Fred was playing that there was an incident where he got lightheaded (don't know if he collapsed or anything) during a practice. The doctors attributed it to caffeine. Once the heart issue came out I always thought back to that incident and wondered if it was a symptom of his heart problem.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I think being an ISU fan is a leading cause for heart conditions!

    I never even considered the pacemaker being bumped, but that makes a whole lot of sense.

    There was a story from espn where Fred took a charge from Karl Malone. The article claimed that if he would have been hit just right it could have killed him.

    Re: Good article in NY Times about Fred's heart condition

    Did you guys pay attention to these quotes from the article:

    + "He is a month from a doctor’s visit that will determine whether he might again need heart surgery, this time to repair the abnormal bicuspid valve he was born with, the one that prompted his first operation, in June 2005."

    + "
    Hoiberg still visits a cardiologist, Dr. Stuart Christenson, every six months. Results are sent to a heart valve specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. At some point, he said, he will need valve-replacement surgery, a procedure he considered “difficult to bounce back from.”

    What does he mean, "difficult to bounce back from.." ? .... better not mean he can't coach.
    Who ever this surgeon is, he better be a damn good one.

    "He was immensely popularity on the campus..." "Published: March 23, 2013"

    You'd think the NY Times could have one editor look at the article within a day.

    Re: Good article in NY Times about Fred's heart condition

    Good article. This quote struck me a little bit.

    Hoiberg still visits a cardiologist, Dr. Stuart Christenson, every six months. Results are sent to a heart valve specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. At some point, he said, he will need valve-replacement surgery, a procedure he considered “difficult to bounce back from.”
    I hope he doesn't need valve replacement. My dad discovered he had a birth defect in a valve about five years ago. Since my dad is such an avid swimmer and in such good shape, the doctor said that during surgery there was only a 1% chance he'd actually need to replace it. The doctor was right and they just did repairs instead of replacing it. Oh yeah, he had it done at Mayo in Rochester too..lol. I am pretty sure Dr. Christianson was "assigned" to my dad too.

    I hope for Fred's sake it's the same as my dad's, them both being in great shape..but who knows. My dad was unable to work out for a few months after it and also lost at least 30 pounds (not big to begin with). I can only imagine how long a valve replacement would keep you out for.

    Re: Good article in NY Times about Fred's heart condition

    I wouldn't worry about if he has a good surgeon or not....Mayo Clinic is the best in the world. I imagine when he needs valve replacement, that'd lead to his retirement. I guess we're a month a way from finding out more info.
