Little Nervous About Stress Test!

Question

Well had my annual stress test at my private cardio doc on Monday and today they called and want me to come back in. Not quite sure what this is about but I was able to walk this time and did OK but who knows?

I recommend that anyone especially Vietnam veterans to get their hearts checked if they have any type of the so called markers for heart disease hypertension, shortness of breath, chest pain or just plain fatigue!

Good luck to all!

Stillhere,

The Doctor probably just wants to go over the results with you. I have never been able to do the treadmill thing. I always have to do the chemical test. Good luck.

It is good to get a stress test every year! Send I had my first heart attack in 1998 the DR has had me down for a test each year. So I try to give up my Hamburger'S two month's a head and start walking :ohmy: In 2001 I had a stress test and the DR call me the next day and said you need to go to the hospital. So my point is, maybe your ok or quit eating them damn Hambuger's! What-a-burger is really good!!!!:tongue: But on another note in dec. 2010 the VA awarded me with 10% IHD. I have had two heart attacks, two stents and constantly see a heart DR. The question is should I ask for than 10% or is this ok??????

What was your EF (ejection fraction) on your latest echocardiogram? What is your latest METS reading?

Asomdepot, What is ejection fraction? I can do a stress test without to much trouble. The VA said my MET's were 10.1, and I need to find out what my personal DR report said. Its amazing they that only go that back to the date that I file with Va! To consider they knew I had this heart condition since 1998 by my doctor's record that I send them. It's sad that this great country would treat us like they do! Oh well! :angry:

I did the treadmill test and began to slip and fell. That was really good for my heart. I don't do those anymore. I do the chemical test. The treadmill is dangerous for a guy like me with PN in both feet. Unless you have symptoms I don't recommend these tests.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
