Well, I am off to see the cardiologist today for my 3 month pacemaker check.  I am a little nervous about it as with all my passing out spells that I have,  I am afraid that I may of dislodged a lead again.  I dont want to go through a revision surgery once again, it is most painful!!
So please all my new friends.....wish me luck. :-)

Thank you for your thoughts dreamgirl.  I am in Missouri (central time zone).

Well, I have a Cardiac Catheterization scheduled due to extreme shortness of breath and my chemical stress test from October being abnormal.  I'm not too sure what was abnormal about it but my cardiologist thinks that the SOB is from my multiple system atrophy as it effects the muscles and not heart related, he just wants to insure this is the case I guess.  Needless to say I am a little worried about it.

Hi dreamgirl,

Yes an Angiogram is the same as a Cardiac Cath.  I have Multiple System Atrophy which is an atypical type of Parkinson's disease and it effects the muscles and how they work.  So my cardiologist is thinking that my shortness of breath may be from that.  If it is there isn't anything that can be done about it.  But since my stress test was abnormal he is going to do a cath to be sure.  I also have bradycardia (slow heart rate) for which I have a pacemaker and a VSD (hole in between my heart ventrals).  He didnt think that these could be causing it.  I dont know.....

hi elisha, i have been looking so forward to the chat tomorrow ... now it looks like i won't be home, pooh, i know this is very important for me, i need the connection, so i hope there will be another time.  there is a chance i can make it, but if i am going to be totally honest.... i will probably be at the casino spending a little $$$$$  i do not go often and i like it so much and tomorrow is the only chance for me to go for a while, so forgive me, but you have been aced out by a slot machine.
