Update - 2nd opinion & tests show no heart defect!!!!

First night in the castle and I experienced heart palps and atrial fibrilation due to severe, acute anemia. Echocardiogram showed evidence of atrial septal defect (ASD) and cardiologist wanted to perform a number of mildly invasive tests to confirm and verify the size and position of ASD.

GYN practices out of different hospital than primary care physician, so I moved to his hospital on 2nd day where I had hyster. While in 2nd hospital I also had palps and AFib and was placed in cardio ICU.

6 weeks post op, NEW primary care sent me to NEW cardiologist to check for ASD. New cardiologist ordered two more echos, EKG, and stress test. Got results on Friday - NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER OF ASD!

I'm wondering what the heck the first doc saw????? And thinking sure am glad I switched hospitals, docs, and sought out 2nd opinion!

Mom said, well, Bonnie, we were praying that God would heal you. Looks like he did! (Gotta love my mom!)

Flippin Eck Bonnie!

What a scary thing to deal with on top of your hysterectomy.

I have no idea what they thought they saw but between you switching hospitals & Drs & your Mum's prayers it has gone away and I wouldn't be too concerned which one had got rid of it, I would just be thrilled that it had!

I hope that you are feeling much better now and that you can put this behind you.

Hugs

Katy
