Thanks Teri, just got back. They said there were some small things that showed up on the treadmill part but the whole picture would be seen on the scans they did. I didn't think of it but should have asked if the stent being in there would complicate things with the scan. How can they tell with a scan if the stent is filling up? I'll have to ask Monday when I call. I was also told to ask about cutting back on the Topral because of my memory problems. If you know the answers to those questions let me know. Are you feeling better today? I hope so. Well I'd say it's time for a nap now. Talk to you later. Barb

Hi Barb!  Sorry it took me so long to get back to you...

Here's a link for you or others that want more info on Toprol~it can cause some memory problems.

http://www.drugs.com/xq/cfm/pageid_0/htm_D00134A1.htm/type_mtm/tgid_18/bn_Toprol%20XL/qx/index.htm

If you have an arterial blockage anywhere it would show up, even where the stent was placed, as a very limited amount of blood flow passing through the area. Sometimes further testing such as doing a heart cath is the best way "the gold standard test" to tell if they have any questions remaining re any blockages.

I'm feeling better, Barb, I hope you are, too!!

Hugs, Teri

Thanks Teri for the info. I'll have to check out that site. Have to do it later because I'm going to the dog park with my daughter and her big dog. She usually works all day Saturday so I'm lucky I get to spend some time with as she got off at noon today. That way I can get my walking in because it's a big park.  yeah  I might get some pics of her dog there for her album. Yeah like I need more pictures to scrap. Not! I'll have to e-mail you a picture of him sometime. He's very cute. Well I'm off to the dog park. Barb

Hi all, I was told that the blood flow through my stent looks good. Glad they ruled out the problems with the heart. I'll let you know what caused all my problems with sob and chest and arm pain when we find out. Barb

Hi Teri, after reading info on side effects of toporal I am really questioning if that is what is causeing sob, chest and arm pain and swelling in my feet. I cut my dose in half and will see how that goes. I don't have high bp and the doc said I could just quit taking it if I wanted too. Well we'll see how it goes. Barb

Barb, please make sure this is okay with your Dr.?!  I know he told you to quit it if you wanted, but I'd still feel lots better if you'd talk to at least his nurse about this! yeah

Hi Teri, I can't beleive he told me to just quit taking it when I read that is really bad to do. You are supposed to cut down gradually on it. I'll call and tell the nurse Monday that I cut it in half instead of just quitting it. If this doesn't help I may request another drug to try that has some of the same benefits Toporal has. I'll let you know how it goes. Barb
