ollie,
 
Hello and weclome to HealingWell.  I have never had one but I have met people that have had up to 6 thallium stress tests over the years.  The following if strictly and FYI link so remember that when reading the info on the site and be sure to ask your Dr. if you have any further concerns.

welcome Ollie.I have had a bunch of them and there has never been a problem.The first one was a little scary since I had no idea what was going to happen.Other than a little chest pressure it was a piece of cake.You will be in good hands.
