I got my results yesterday at the cardiologist's. The echocardiogram showed that my aneurism is still "very very very tiny". That is according to Dr. Tan. It has not grown at all. Other good news is that my EF went from 30/35% to 50/55%. Immediately after my MI in Jan. of 2004 it was the 30-35 number. The day of my echo the techs told me it was 58%. Also, my hart failure is in Stage one. When I had the MI it was in Stage 3 or 4, and he said there were only 4 stages.
He did get after me for not losing weight. I needed to be confronted. Now for my blood work.
(My liver is fine, also)
Dr. Tan increased my Lipitor ot 40 mg from 20.
I"ve had to edit this 2 tims now! I keep missing things, like words, haha. My CHOL/HDL Rati is 3.6. There is an L to the right of that which has in parenthesis the numbers 3.8-5.7. I'm guessing that is the desired ratio.
He attributed my constant fatigue to possibly weight, diabetis or the medication that I'm taking. My blood pressure is often in the lower ranges
I just wanted to share the news. It made me feel pretty good, although there is still much work ahead. Oh, P.S. He told me I can do just about
anything I want in my job, only the tiredness can limit me. As long as I don't have an extremely physical job, which I don't.
