Went for my bi annual cardio appt--

My cardio saw a change in my "QRS" interval-

He told me he felt pretty sure I was...OK- but wants to check it out-
He gave me an echo today...(I've had plenty of these)...& it was OK

He told me..."An echo is to rule out CHF. A stress test to rule out coronary artery disease-"

Anyway....after seeing my Echo results..I asked him..(I'm big on odds)---"what are the odds my stress test will be..OK" (I had asked bout my echo..he said "90%"--) He said he felt my Stress test odds for normal were...."92%"...! (Don't ask me.....why the extra 2 points)-

Anyway-I believe in the stress test without the treadmill.....I believe he mentioned something about injecting a "tracer"--

Has anyone had this test? If so, I'd appreciate any feedback .AND how soon afterward did you get the results ..?
Thanks,
Richard
