Well...I saw my cardiologist again yesterday. I have pulmonary artery hypertension and have been having runs of v-tach: the hyperthyroidism is overstimulating the heart. They could not do the thyroid uptake scan because i've been on steroids for so long and can't come off due to adrenal insufficiency. The prednisone renders the test useless and complicates everything! SO, now I have to see a pulmonologist and an endocrinologist! YUCK!!! The cardiologist says more than likely he will do a right sided heart cath. (Swan-Ganz catheterization) which I TOTALLY do not want!
ANYONE have pulmonary artery hypertension?? I'm real frustrated and scared. I am doing so well from a kidney stand point and now this! Forgive me for complaining! I know many of you are going through worse situations! ANY advice...words of wisdom appreciated!
