Cardiologist office just called. They moved my echo up to tomorrow afternoon! Yay!

Haven't had insurance for the past 6 months. Just got it the first of April so now I can get checked out! This really scares me as it hasn't even been 2 years since my open heart surgery.

I have so much anxiety over my heart. I know they said the repair went well. I know they said I'm fine, but I get really scared. Especially at night when I'm lying down.

Does anyone else who had heart surgery feel uncomfortable when you lie down? The doc said its scar tissue and not to worry about it. Easier said then done though.

I've gained some weight since I started taking HRT and I feel so sluggish. I get out of breath really easily these days. That scares me too. Walking up a flight of stairs is not fun anymore! I would say I'm 30 pounds overweight.

I don't get to actually see the cardiologist until June 9th. So long from now! I would think that if there is anything amiss on the echo, that they will see me sooner.

Here's hoping all is well. My valve is fine, and normal sinus rhythm, no AFib! Fingers crossed!

I understand your concerns.  If there is something urgent on your ECHO, I am sure you will hear from your Dr. as all reports would go to him.
June does sound like forever when you are waiting for test results.
I hope all goes well.
