MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Former Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak says he feels 'better than before' about a month after suffering a heart attack.
Rybak made the comments Sunday on WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/MCXAEX ). He says he is feeling good and has more energy.
Rybak also says that the signs of a heart attack weren't quite what he expected. He said he thought a heart attack would feel like a stabbing in the chest. But instead, he says it felt like an elephant was on his chest and he couldn't breathe.
He says he had a heart attack because of genetics — but because of his healthy lifestyle, he had zero heart damage.
He says it's a reminder that it's important to stay healthy and stay in shape.
