Hi to all you Sisters...
Today was supposed to be my surgery...but it has been postponed! This could get long...let me backtrack a bit...for the last few months I have been having "episodes" of pain...chest, back, arms, jaw...sometimes it was not so bad and sometimes it was really bad...and "no" I did not go to the ER...have been there soo many times in the last 3 years and have had to deal with ignorant DR's who think I am just there for the Demoral and that there is nothing is all in my head...WELL...turns out it is not in my head! Had mentioned to my DR about the chest pain and he sent me to a Cardiologist, who did a cardiac stress test and a cardiolite (where they inject dye and take loads of pictures of your heart). Had not heard from the Cardilolgist when I went to my pre-op this past Weds. so imagine my surprise when my DR says " have had at least 2 heart attacks in the last 6-8 weeks!!!!" Sent me immediately over to the Cardiologist who did confirm all of this!! Put me on 2 different meds, gave me the nitro spray and said I must have Angioplasty ASAP!! This involves going to Calgary as they do not do this procedure in Medicine Hat.
Soo. my surgery was cancelled until I have all this other sorted out!! And I was sooo ready for the Hyst!! Just got over what I thought was my last period!! And it was the "period from hell!!"
I think I am still in shock over all this and am scared ****LESS!! Sorry about the term, but that is how I feel!! Will keep you all posted...THANK-YOU for listening and for all your support!!! You are all such

Hugs to you!!

Aw Kathy,

I'm sure glad they found out what was going on with the chest pains! Although you are very understandabley scared about the upcoming Angioplasty, I'm sure your doc is a great doc and you'll do wonderful!

Even though your hyster surgery has been post-poned, I'm sure once everything else is taken care of, you'll again get a new date and be crowned a Princess

Take care Kathy and please keep us posted Sweetie!!

Hugs and blessings,

So Sorry

So sorry to hear things are going the way you planned. It probably is very good that you get this fixed and out of the way before your hysterectomy.

Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.

That angioplasty ought to fix you right up. I can hear how scared you are, but these surgeries work well Kathy. How long I wonder will you have to wait until they will do the hysterectomy. Well for now, everyone knows it wasn't in your was in your :HEART:.
Take care and keep us informed.

Hi, Kathy! I'm so sorry to hear of your cardiac problems, and really sorry to hear that the drs didn't diagnose them for so long. That's scary! But it sounds like you have a good cardiologist now and will be getting good care for your angioplasty. Best wishes for this surgery and take care of yourself so your heart will be able to heal and be strong before you have to have your hyst. I know it's hard to cope with so many medical problems at once. Many s to you!

heart attach

Did your pain cause the heart attacks??

Sounds like exactly the right choice of words to me! You poor thing! Thank goodness you mentioned the chest pain, and your doctor listened. Heart problems often are last thing doctors think of with women. I hope everything goes smoothly for you

Now if you can just find the Angio Sisters web site...

Just sent a prayer winging your way!

You wonderful sister! I am soooo sorry this has happened! I am also glad that they found this out before the surgery instead of while you were in the OR. That could have had disasterous effects! I will be thinking of you! Please let us know how you are doing and if you need anymore support. We are here for you!
