    I was just wondering if I could get some advice from some people on what it is I should do. When I was discharged from the hospital in June after 5 days the Dr. said that hes not saying I could go back to work and he was not saying that I couldnt go back to work. Does this make sense? He said " Im not saying while at work your not going to experience chest pains, sob, or even rapid pacing." Last two times i had chest pains I Was at worl and left and later on went to the hospital. I was just looking for some advice on what I should do. All comments and suggestions welcomed.

    I think you need to really have a talk with the doctor. If he wants to have you go to work fine...if he thinks you should be placed on disability fine, but you can not be in the position of attempting to guess what is medically best for you.

    Dont you have an appointment soon at TUFTS? Maybe they can help figure this out for you.

    My first thought was "get a new doctor." That kind of help, no one needs. Lisa is right, your doctor is supposed to know the answer to this one.

    Come to think of it these are the Drs that told me my chest pains and shortness have nothing to due with my heart that its either my lungs or acid reflux after tests, then called back several days later and said they had spoke to another cardiologist who said he feels as my hearts not relxed enough.... makes you wonder. I cant WAIT for my appointment at Tufts SEPT 18!!!! thanks ladies
