Hi all, I'd like to give good news, but I never ever get any. Whining time again. You all said it was ok to come with whatever you need to talk about, so here goes. The EKG was irregular. She said when it dipped it dips to low. The Echocardigram shows my left side heart enlarged, A heart murmur, Fluid around my heart. So....I get to add another doctor to my list. I have to go to a cardiologist. My CT Scan of head was normal. Don't have Ultrasound of Carotid arteries back yet. This was the one I was most concerned about. The lady who did it made the comment that some doctors accept 30% and some want more. I didn't know what that meant. My family doctor said that at 60% they do surgery. So, hopefully mine is only 30%. She said she would call when she gets that. So, I have a full month of December with doctor appts. and other appts. Well, what do you all think about this. Can chemo or radiation cause heart problems?? I'm kinda nervous now. The doctor said I had been through so much and would make it through this. I hope she's right. Sorry for more bad news. Boy, am I tired.
