    Have Dr. Shah call Dr. pissed-off and let them duke it out. Your regular card was the one who put you on the wrong meds in the first place and is not in charge of your HCM. Dr. Shah is, last I heard.

    take care,

    Ditto! Let Dr Shah knock some sense into the internal medicine guy!

        Reenie, your battling smilies are the cutest thing I have seen! I wish my doctor saw your message! What a mess! I wrote to Lori, Dr. Shah's secretary and told her everything. I am waiting to hear back. thanks everyone. Maybe when I go back to see Dr. Shah, he will give me a new prescription for less thyroid.

            Kathy & Elsa,

            I would LOVE to start our very own chapter for Southern California! When do you think you will be in San Diego, Elsa? I discovered a conflict on Mar 27th (I'd forgotten it), so I just emailed Kathy with more specifics. It'll work best for me if we go to Newport Beach on the 25th. I'd probably come to San Diego on the 24th, so we could get together that evening or the evening of the 25th. Or, as Kathy said, we could all travel to Newport Beach. And eat at the Crab Shack. And walk on that marvelous stretch of beach!

            Kathy, for the stress echo you lie down and peddle against increasing resistance. The tech is doing an echo at the same time & another tech is monitoring the EKG & your symptoms. Dr. Shah was in and out, directing the process and asking me questions.They did it in the area right near his office.

            I agree with the others--ask Dr. Shah to call the internist about the thyroid med. And you do want that change made a couple of weeks before the stress echo so he can see your heart function under a lower dose.

            Take good care,
            Pat

              And girls, can you keep me updated on the trip to Newport Beach? I'm not that far away and might be able to join you. I don't know yet, but am interested.

                Oh Boy, this sounds fun. Reenie too! I am going to try to get my appt. on the 25th now but I have no idea of Dr. Shah's schedule etc. So will have to wait and see. I hope to get my appt. around 10:30 or 11am. But what I want may not happen. LOL I will make an announcement when I get the appt and anyone that wants to meet in Newport for a couple of hours after my appt is invited to come. Newport Beach is actually a beautiful area on the ocean in So. Calif. You could all meet at Hoag and say hi to Dr. Shah!
