Anyone fainting?

I'm 41, 3 weeks post-op on my LAVH, ovaries and all, and I fainted for the first time in my life 3 days ago. Besides the passing out, I had severe chest pains. Went for an EKG, they told me I had a virus, but hm, no fever, only vomited once right after I came to, so I'm confused. I'm on Estratest HR, and woke up that day feeling really great for the first time since surgery. My surgeon said it wasn't post-op and sent me to my internist. I'm plainning on following up with a cardiologist (existing risk factors for HD), but the only thing different in my life is the recent loss of body parts. If anyone has some reasurrances for me, I'd appreciate anything you've got! It was frightening enough, and then to be dismissed by a doc as a hysterical fainting woman was infuriating!

Anyone fainting?

So sorry you are feeling "dismissed" by a doc. Sounds like you are doing the right things..........getting an immediate cardiac spot check to rule out anything immediately life-threatening (Thank God, it wasn't!), and following through to rule out anything else, before questioning simpler reasons.

I've not fainted, but have dizziness where I thought I could faint, from chemical imbalances, started by hormonal changes. Those chemicals in our bodies are powerful things.

Hope all turns out well, and you get some peace of mind, soon. Take care, Princess........s.....Deb

Thank you so much, the hormone imbalance thing is what I was hoping someone would say, and no one medically has, but I do feel reassured now, thanks!

I'll let myself breathe!
