Okay, so here I was all relatively calm anticipating my 2/3 surgery.
In December they did the pre-op EKG. The surgeon (saw him Friday for a pre-op visit) wasn't 100% confident with what he saw so he sent me to a cardiologist
I went today, had an EKG, met the cardiologist (very nice guy). He said that it looks marginally okay but given that I'm now over 40 (43), the surgeon anticipates a 5-10 hour surgery, I am on crestor for high cholesterol (on control under crestor), and have no family history (I'm adopted)...it's best to be safe and do more.
So just to be careful the cardiologist has me scheduled for a stress test Wednesday at 7:45 AM . I am FREAKING out. My hubby says "they are just making sure and since you are adopted it's okay to get a baseline stress test". Okay, I'd buy that if i wasn't already SO stressed anyway (I have the brace fitting appointment tomorrow and so much to do this week)
Help talk me down from my ledge Thank goodness we live in a ranch style house, if I jump out of the window I only get to the deck one inch down :-)
