  • Heart Cath Done

    Ok guys I'm home from the hospital the Cath was done as 7:30 this morning and he said the pressures in my heart was OK and he said i have a gradient in the right ventricle, i know my groin is sore i had this 6'4" Nurse standing on my groin, he looked at it and told me i was going to bruise from this one, but he said things were ok and he wants to see me in his office on the 8th of next month

    It is so amazing the nurses read in my chart and he has put down pre transplant patient and they go into shock all have a good night

    Shirley, am so glad pressures are okay. Like I said it makes for an easier match when you reach transplant stage. I leave in a week for another biopsy, have had a little bump in my road but even with the bumps I still feel better than pre transplant. Still exercising 35-40 min 5 days a week. As you know not possible as you are now. Let me know what the Dr. says in 2 weeks. Glad your cath is over. I will have another one in March.

      Thanks Midge

      I have alot of questions for him in 2 weeks, everytime i go to ask he says well we will do these tests and then sit down and talk in length about the transplant, i just feel it will help with making alot of decissions if he would just answer alot of them, all my paperwork say pre transplant patient, he says that to everyone but me, i have been on meds for 2 years, i don't think they are going to help much at this point, he wants to switch me around a little on my meds take some away and add some he said it may help a little, i did ask him if i was going on the list and he said yes you are but i want to see if we can make you feel any better


      You take care and the best of luck on your biopsy coming up, it is great that you are feeling better i told my doctor about you and he said that was fantastic and he says it is happening more and more people doing so well after a transplant he says they have come a long way
