A man made statements and revealed that he lives with “disease Naxos“, without having understood anything until the age of 31, because he had not appeared any symptom. However, then the signs appeared and doctors put in an internal defibrillator.
THE Anargyros Vassilakis spoke on the Live News show and told Nikos Evangelatos that “I had no symptoms until I was 31. In theory I always had to do some tests which I never did. In fact, I was not a patient at some point, until 30-31. Imagine that I’ve been in the military, I’ve been a paratrooper, I’ve been mountain climbing, I’ve been ice climbing, I’ve been climbing Meteora».
However, at the age of 31, he developed severe arrhythmias and said that “it was a period when I was training intensely and then I felt arrhythmias. First time I had never felt before. It was scary. Very scary. I won’t hide it. If someone doesn’t know that they might have this gene that can cause this thing, they will avoid such competitive sports. That is, someone who knows this will not stress his heart.”
Then the doctors gave him internal defibrillator, something like a pacemaker, which would deliver the necessary electric shock to the heart in the event of an arrest.
“You know that it’s like walking and wearing a helmet. It’s like wearing a seat belt. I thought it would cut off my activities, ruin my life. And how will I do both. The act proved what the Protonotary had told me that you will forget whether you have it left or right. And it is true, life went on and on as normal“, he then added.
