Dear Dreamgirl: Thanks for your input. I'm going back in for another cath on 12-13-06 (Wed) to correct the problem that my heart's electrical problem wouldn't let them fix the last time (11-15-06). As long as I sit still, I have no problems, but moving around and doing housework causes the CAD to really act up. I should be a lot better after the cath ... they are doing an atherectomy (shaving plaque instead of balloon ... mine is not in a position for the balloon) and stent. It's funny that they are having so much about stents when I'm going in for one. It shouldn't be a problem though since only one coronary artery is affected and I'm already on Coumadin for A-fib. I also meet w/my Neurologist on Monday ... I have periventricular leukomalacia (rare in adults, but not in premature infants ... caused by high BP, etc ... gray areas become white matter in the brain) and microvascular disease. At least I have an excuse when I can't find something. ha ha I never thought I would find myself eating oatmeal and liking it, but now I do and actually miss it if I don't have it for breakfast! Hopefully between oatmeal and Vytorin, my cholesterol is back down. In April I had normal cholesterol and a cath 2 yrs ago showed completely clear coronary arteries. Mine is heredity, so if you have had a cath in the past that was clear & you have a fam hx of CAD, BEWARE! Thanks again for input & especially the support.
