Thanks for the welcome and kind words. I do not have a history of heart problems but heart attack and stroke run in my family history. I do have some other factors like overweight, stress, etc. that added to the concern. I think the main reason they did the heart cath was that the heart monitor i wore showed some inverted t waves (what ever that is) and some flatlines over a 24 hour period while I was in the hospital. All that said, my heart looked great (thank God) on the cath and the heart doc said to follow up with a good GI. So, here I am. Waiting on those results and hoping to hear something encouraging in the next few days.
I had my gallbladder taken out 2 years ago. I had gallbladder dz - no stones. I dont' know if my gallbladder being gone has triggered my current problems or not.
Thanks so much for your reply to my post and I hope everything is going well for you and your sister.
