OMGZ, WILL HE EVER PLAY AGAIN!!?!?!??


Nah, I understand that - but as someone who remembers the story of Gathers and Lewis, I'm not one to make assumptions on heart conditions.

By most accounts, these two basketball players had their conditions "in control" via medication, and both were heavily monitored. However, when you're dealing with the heart, one minor miscalculation is all that is needed to lead to some fatal results.

If he does play, that's great. But, if he were to weigh out the risks to be greater than the rewards and choose to walk away, I wouldn't be bitter in the slightest.

Some arrhythmia's are more dangerous than others (late editing that into my last post). None of us really know for sure how serious this is, but from what i'm reading i would not think this is very serious.

EDIT: my father has atrial fibrillation, a form of arrhythmia. He's gone through this exact procedure 3 times now. The condition is not considered serious by any means, but it does cause him to be tired all the time because his heart does not pump as well as it should. He would sometimes get these same exact episodes as Foster. Racing heart and whatnot. Not life threatening, but life altering. For all we know, this is the exact same thing.


As a fan of the Texans and Foster, I hope so. Sad

Hope he's ok, but based on what theJ just posted doesn't sound like a big deal. Let's hope that's the case.

Wow, pretty crazy. Never heard NFL players undergoing heart surgery in the offseason before.


Closest thing I could think of would be Ronnie Turiaf in the NBA, I think his was for an enlarged heart. Hopefully Foster's procedure goes smoothly.


Didnt Eddy Curry have that same surgery in the offseason too?


I hope Foster has a successful surgery. He said he should be ready by the regular season. I guess that will delay any talk of Tate being traded, and we will probably draft a RB late in the draft just in case.

This is a pretty big deal. I hope he recovers well and doesn't face any further issues.

Yeah i just read the article. It's a procedure. Your post title is very misleading. This is not a major deal. Just a minor thing, may be in the hospital for 1-2 days. Definitely not anything like open heart surgery.


Agreed, it seems Kenney over reacted on this one just a tad. Its not THAT big a deal. Its a common procedure and low risk. Hopefully he covers fast from it still.

I misled no one. My topic title is the same as the article's, nearly verbatim. I fulfilled my obligation to report the news truthfully to the best of my knowledge and generated discussion.

Do not condescend to me because I lack the medical expertise to accurately interpret jargon.

You explained the nature of the "procedure." Thank you.

Foster's statement on the subject:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/gameon/2013/02/01/texans-arian-foster-heart-surgery/1882409/

Arian Foster wrote:
Thank you all for the concern. As of now, I have no complications with my blood pumper. There was a casual conversation with a reporter about my particular condition that turned public. But I have not, nor do I plan to anytime in the near future, have conversations with my doctors about any surgery. I am feeling well and am as exuberant as ever. Love and light to all those concerned!"


Seems as if someone ran the wrong direction on this. No bother, seems like these things happen from a journalistic perspective. Like the old telephone game we all played in preschool.

You're right, i didn't handle that particularly well. I flew off the handle a little bit because i could already see this topic jumping to 40 pages about how Foster shouldn't play again, blah blah blah. My apologies.

In reality it's the reporters fault for the title. They should understand every word they put in an article and the title. The block of the article is correct in that it would have been a procedure. He should not have called it a surgery in the title.

Good to hear. Means its even less serious than i was portraying. This is nothing that i would ever be concerned with.

I believe Jon Niese of the New York Mets had the same operation. Should not affect his play next season.

I remember hearing about his heart problem when it happened... I never realized it was so severe.

I wish him the best. I just hope that for his own sake, that if things don't go well with the surgery; that he will just retire before putting his life at risk by going back out on the field.
