I had a Nissen Fundoplication surgery performed on me twenty-nine days ago and my preop ECG performed before my surgery has me wondering about
a few things. It alert
ed the nurse who read it and she showed the read out to a doctor who said I was fit for surgery. The surgery went well and my reflux is gone which is wonderful. The problem I am having is that other symptoms I experienced before the surgery have not gone away or even subsided and I'm curious as to whether or not this ECG might provide a link to whatever it is that is making me feel so badly. I'm going to list my symptoms and then do my best to write down what this ECG and report reads. I have it right here in front of me so I can show doctors notes and all that jazz.
Symptoms: dizziness, pain in thr crevace where my collar bones meet in center of chest, foggy vision, headache that won't go away even with Demerol, migraines every couple of days, heart pounding, weakness in left arm and leg, numbness in last two fingers on left hand and left two toes on left foot, trouble taking in deep breath, slight cough, constant sweating, peripheral vision in right eye all but gone, constant feeling like I'm falling off something, very tired, occasional feelings like my hands and teeth feel really large, waves moving across left side of scalp, plus other things I'm surely forgetting.
I'm a healthy male age 32. I weigh 165lbs @ 5' 10" and am normally very active. My diet is superb. I haven't been to a fast food joint in years. No alcohol consumption. Non smoker. Until these weird symptoms formed and a hiatal hernia was found I was very healthy with no problems. I hadn't even been to a doctor in over six years.
Here is what the ECG reads:
Sinus rhythm....normal P axis, V-rate 50-99
LVH by voltage....R>2.60mv in V5 or V6
Probable inferior infarct, old....Q>35ms, II III aVF
Lateral infarct, acute (LAD)....ST>.10mv, V5 V6 I aVL
Anterior ST elevation, probably due to LVH....ST>0.20mv in V1-V4 & LVH
Doctors notes: Left ventricular hypertrophy. High take off of the ST segment is noted. Possible inferior scar.
RHYTHM: Sinus. RATE: 67, PR: 0.13, QRS: 0.08, AXIS: +50 Degrees
Any help with this would be wonderful since at this point I barely have enough energy to get off my couch and check my mailbox.
