I like your exercise LOL sounds like mine tee heee I need to get my butt moving as well!!! sorry to hear about what your dealing with.
I do think you need to talk thoroughly with your cardio the risk involving a cath it will give you peace of mind to know what's going on if you do have one done!!!
I've had 2 caths in the last 3 yrs. I was really scared when I had to have the 2nd one done I ended up with 3 stents in the RCA with my 2nd cath. (I had the cath done 4 months ago) it wasn't that bad!!! Don't remember a lot with the first cath they had me pump full of morphine it was right after my heart attack ended up with one stent in the LAD.
I was 39 when I had my MI I can relate I still freak out when I get some angina thinking is this angina or ???
The 64-slice CT scan is great from what I hear but when I had my cath done 4 months ago my cardio said we do have the new 64-slice CT scan, but unfortunately we can't use it on you because you already have a stent it doesn't look within the stent!!! don't know if he was lying to me or not cause I've heard other stent folks saying they had it done.
Good luck, Phil
