  • You gave me a gut laugh. Thanks, I needed that, but it woke up my dog.

    Please keep us posted, k?

  • Chemically induced stress tests scare me to death. I had to have one before my laminectomy in 2009 because I couldn't do the treadmill. They really aren't that bad, but I just don't like them. As for the cath to remove the deely-wooger, I just couldn't stop laughing, even though I don't have a clue what a deely-wooger might be.I wish you luck and prayers are with you.
  • I hope the test goes well tomorrow and rest up for it. Thinking of you tomorrow. Charry

    the doc look at ta other fella in the room and goes m-hmm, m-hmm, looks at mine, goes....,...Thats interesting and rushes out the room.

    come back for more test.

    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • My doc is extremely athletic and fit and he made me walk on the treadmill. ugh, gasp, sweat!!!
    The following day I had a AAA ultrasound.
    While they were doing the ultrasound, I noticed that I was really, REALLy sore from my sternum around and under my left breast almost to my side. I have no idea what caused this--it is not a cardiac pain, I think it is muscle or nerve pain-perhaps costochondritis?????
    It is still really sore. Any ideas or suggestions???? Anyone??
  • did the chemical version of he stress test, pokey arm, poky arm..FAINTFEELINGFROMTHEPAIN... then a soothing "this is gonna feel like ya walked a little bit..uhhh ya.
    I felt just like ide been in a car crash..literally.
    the follow up is tday and will find out about results.

    Out of control. my sternum to back pain is caused by an rib out of place and pushing where it doesnt need to be. good luck in finding a solution.
