I had to see my Primary Care Doc yesterday for an unrelated issued to my Neck Surgery. I told her that my Spine Doctor had given me results of my MRI and I will be having major neck surgery.
She said the surgeon would probably want to do a full workup first. She said we wouldn't want you to have a heart attack in the middle of surgery. She thinks it would be beneficial I have a stress test first as well.
I don't mind. I am diabetic, overweight and 56 yrs old. I've never had any heart problems yet. But I'll 'go with the flow' and do whatever the Doc's advise.
