VA Cardio Dr. Appt. from Oct. 15th to 9/5/14. UPDATE


biggrin Another update! I went in on Friday to the Cadrdiologist; had an EKG. Then a visit with the DR. The EKG showed no changes; that was a good thing. He checked my heart and said it sounded the same. I asked; "What is causing the the pain near the lower part of the heart above the stomach?" The only conclusion is from the damage from the infarct; Heart attack. He said! 

  What I searched in the Jounal of Cardiology Cases was that it could be caused by: Pain associated with left bunndle branch (heart arteries) blocked and cardiac memory mimicking Ischemia (not getting enough oxgen into the fresh blood going back into the extremities of our body. Simply put my left arteries were blocked 95+% until they got the 2 stents in. The blockages caused the HA and infarct (heart damage). 

  The heart is and amazing organ; it has electrical signal impulses that make it expand and contract, valves that open and close, and continues to beat nonstop; of course unless something goes awry and it quits. A chamber can blow out if the arteries get completely clogged; Cardiac Arrest! 

   I believe I will have to put up with the pain; which still can be Angina and take the blasted Nitro pills that I so much hate. Dr. asked if I used it; I said; Maybe once or twice. Told him I put baby aspirin under my tongue cause the feeling of light headedness was making me think another HA was coming. He said it would open the blood vessels giving me more blood to the heart and prevent another HA. I will try I told him. confuseconfuse

Sounds like you are stable. Improvements come slowly with one's body especially as they age so maybe in time you'll see progress toward feeling better and being stronger.

Hey, Ed.

If the stuff works, take it and go camping.  Then you'll have "medicine" for the body and for the mind.
