I had my Tee Test yesterday.
It was way worse then I expected.
My sedation was minimal. I was Wide Awake. The probe down my throat was very painful-It Hurt Alot- During the whole Echo. Maybe I wasnt numbed enough? I already wasnt numb not even 5 minutes after the end of the test.
Also my Hole in my heart is in a different place then thought & there is a small chance I will need open heart surgery. I am freaking out & totally Bummed. He said something like to close to the edge- I already forget.
My Cardio- Must be very good ( I hope)- because Both Nurses said if anyone can fix this with a Catheter procedure he can.
I need to set up an Appt to discuss my test Results with my Cardio(a Different Dr did the test)...Although he called My Dr. with the results & thats when he told me he thinks he can still fix it.
I feel like I am always unlucky & I will end opn not being a Candidate for The Transcathetor closure.
How many of you had had to have open Heart Surgery for your PFO/ASD?
Can you share your experience.
Also- this Dr asked me who my Neurologist was...I dont have one. Should I ?
No one ever sent me to see one.
