    angioplasty

    I read the article on http://my.webmd.com/content/article/49/40111.htm It sounds very interesting I copied and printed it also would give it a read later again (I remember some years ago used to fast one day per week. Using nothing but an occasional glass of water) kalip

    angioplasty

    I had two stents implanted. Never realized that I would be semi conscious during the procedure I can hardly remember any thing I remember going into the lab The next thing I remembered I found myself in the ICU to spend the night. I had a little problem with my stomach maybe something I ate I vomited almost all night last night. I just called the lab and the doctor said that it is nothing to worry about. But I am much better now I am still l at my brother’s place I would be going home tomorrow morning. I posting from this IBM P3 Laptop it is not the fastest computer I h

    Bypass surgery

    Good to hear that you finally got a date for bypass surgery. Was reading on line of the progress in surgical techniques “keyhole surgery” also minimally invasive coronary artery bypass surgery is done through smaller incisions. My best wishes and thoughts are with you. kalip

    Angioplasty

    Thanks for your concern; you folks are very kind and caring indeed Not much has changed; he just confirmed what my first Cardiologist told me. Although he said that I should not be unduly worried about the long wait for the angioplasty. He said that the medications are helping plus the Nuclear Test indicated that there is still blood flow through the narrowed area. The visit really lifted my spirits I guess I am all set for June 30 I shall l keep you posted on any new developments Bye Kalip

    Angioplasty

    Just thought I would let you know that my attending cardiologist (Second) is finally back. I have an appointment with him at 2.00 pm today. Any way it is just a matter of formality and....perhaps a second opinion also clearing up any dark areas. For I have already scheduled my Angioplasty for June 30 2004

    Echo

    I don't want to sound negative but, I am now wondering how effective those non invasive tests are. After my heart attack in October 2001 I had approximately 4 Echo Cardiograms and 4 Stress Tests done. I passed all these tests I had absolutely no pain or discomfort. They all gave a negative result I thought I was fine,.... .....I t is only when I did the nuclear perfusion scan did they detect septal wall damage and reduced blood flow to the anterior and inferior walls. However it is only when I reluctantly did the Coronary Angiogram did they detect 4 LAD Coronary blockages

    Angiogram results

    Thank you for your concern Just a few questions How long one takes to recover from this procedure ? Would I be up and around in 24 hours time like after the angiogram ? Or would I be confined to bed for a while?

    Angiogram results

    I visited the cath lab today. I just can’t believe my luck!!!!!!!! After waiting three hours I was told that the Dr. who actually does the procedure was not in, I wanted to speak with him. I wanted to know how many stents would be necessary etc. Further the earliest appointment I was able to get for the procedure was June 30. They asked me to call the lab tomorrow at around midday to see if he is in I wonder if I could survive that long This is really frustrating!! I give up what ever will be, will be.

    Angiogram results

    I am due to visit the cath lab this morning. Don’t want to sound hysterical but, I am wondering how much time I have again before this artery is totally blocked It has almost been a month since the angiogram. Do aspirin plavix beat blockers and ACE inhibitors really help? I am just wondering what would happen if I get an appointment for stenting next week!!! Would I survive so long!!

    Angiogram results

    My appointment on Monday is with the Lab to do the necessary paper work They have to make the arrangements then schedule me If time permits I may consider visiting my second Cardiologist to inform him of my decision. Although I have already made up my mind to go with the drug eluting stent. I think it is best get it over and done with. I have been in limbo since May 20 this uncertainty is killing me. kalip

    Angiogram results

    !I visited my first Cardiologist last evening. Could not wait for the second - my Attending Cardiologist- to arrive home (After all it is my First Cardiologist who saved my life back in October 2001) He suggested that I have the choice of by pass surgery of stenting. I told him that I am going for the latter; he did all the necessary paperwork. I shall visit the cath lab on Monday Think I should discuss it with my second Cardiologist when he arrives on Friday? After all he is the one who recommended the angiogram in the first place

  22. Last May (2003) I experimented with Natures plus gugulipid 750 mg. capsules. After two months of the herb my blood results read like this: Total Cholesterol 187 Triglycerides 129 HDL 58 LDL 103 Ratio 3.2 But apparently it was reacting with the beta blocker (Coreg) I was forced to Stop and continue with the zocor kalip
