The medical problems just don't want to stop! I had my cataract surgery about 2 weeks ago, follow up about a week ago and the doc thinks he can get me 20/25 in my bad eye and 20/20 in my good eye. YAAAYYY! So I go to see my cardiologist today for a 6 month check up. Blood pressure is great...112/70. He decides to do an ultrasound on my heart and my carotid arteries. My heart was hard to see because my lungs are very enlarged from my years of smoking. This will not go away, no matter now much I exercise. This is the cause of my shortness of breath/lack of endurance. It will improve some with exercise. Then he informs me that my right carotid artery is ~50% blocked! His next question was "Do you want your angiogram on this coming Wednesday or this Friday? " Jeez!! This was supposed to be a piece of cake checkup! WTF?? So, I go in on Friday, 6 a.m. for an angiogram and probably an angioplasty where he's going to insert another stent. Bummer!!! His concern is that a small piece of the blockage could break off, go to my brain and cause a stroke. Sooooooooo, I'll be getting another wonderful treatment in Lubbock for my heart related stuff. Jeez, I'm so damn tired of docs finding stuff wrong!
