This past May I had a LAD 100% blockage heart attack,2 stents were placed to save my life. I still am not feeling well. this past Thursday I had a TEE test that is where the a scope is put down the esophagus and a echo is done from down the esophagus.
The reason I had the TEE done because the symptoms which have been getting worse.
Short of breath when going up or down stairs, or walking any distance
sweating with any activity
Very dizzy
Chest pains
feeling as if I am going to black out,When driving at times I have had to pull over until it subsides. which I don't drive very often. I felt as if my stents were failing.
I'm so confused, after my heart attack I started biking every day I would ride between 12 and 14 miles per evening.Why now am I having all of these symptoms? How am I going to ride my bike this year?
Sorry to jump around so much with my story.
After the TEE was done I don't remember to much but the Dr. said I have a thinning heart wall.
I see him on Monday to Discuss his findings. any one else have this if so what does this mean for my heart health?
By the way my heart attack was do to heat from the ablation transferring to lad( thermal damage)

Hi, 3 weeks ago my Cardiologist scheduled me for a Cardiolite stress test. Towards the middle of the second part of the treadmill test I became short of breath .But I did manage to push myself to finish the test. The following week I went back to the cardiologist to discuss my test results.
My heart muscle function is 53%. The Dr. did find suspicion of blockage in CAD. This coming Monday I am having a cardiac cath .How accurate is the cardiolite test? If there is a suspicion of a blockage/ blockages does that mean more than likely their is a problem?
I have been getting out of breath ,fatigued, sweating , chest pains and light headed.
Thanks Everyone
