Survived A Heart Attack
On November 2, 2019, James posted a picture of him recovering from his surgery. The YouTuber/car geek explained that he was feeling a weird pain in his neck and shoulders a week before. His condition worsens as severe discomfort had spread to his jaw and right arm. So, he drove himself to the ER, but things got a bit out of hand as the doctor told him he was having a heart attack for the past 12 hours.
Within a few hours, James was in the lab, and the doctors were running a tube from his right wrist through an artery all the way to his heart. It turned out that he had another heart attack about six months ago, and two of the three arteries that feed his heart had 100% blockage. The doctors were able to clear one artery and added a stint to keep it open, whereas another artery was rock hard, but his body had grown collateral vessels to feed itself, so his body was getting sufficient blood flow.
James further said that he had awful genetics when it came to his heart. His father also died cause of a heart attack at the age of 48, and his sister Mary Pumphrey too, had a similar experience before she was 30.
After a near-death experience, James saw it as a second chance to change his lifestyle. The main problem with him was his habit of eating junk food and smoking. He said he had been eating a whole lot of unhealthy food and was smoking for nearly 15 years. In the end, he promised to change his lifestyle and thanked all of the doctors, nurses, and technologists at UCLA medical center for saving his life.
