I was told 40 years ago that I had a heart event by my cardiologist but he very much stated that I did not have a heart attack and gave me clearance for an operation on my knee two weeks after that. Recently my cardiologist here in Florida said that I had a old heart attack and I should now take statins. I have read two books on statins and due to theoir side effects am reluctant to take them. I have normal clorestral levels , am 81 years old. in good health and exercise an hour daily. What other heart events are there besides a heart attack??????
