But really, be careful with those stress tests. They do them in hospitals

I do the tread mill test to check my stents.   It's real hard as my 
heart doesn't get fast enough in the time they allocate (it is important 
because of the radioactive stuff in me).   

When I do this, I couldn't go to a facility that handles radioactivity 
for a couple of weeks without setting off all their alarms.
