Possible Reprieve

My surgeon called yesterday (yes, he himself called) to tell me he needs more information before proceeding with surgery.  The echocardiogram I had last week showed a difference from the MRI results, so he wants me to have a stress echo.  I dread that since I've heard how hard this is on people.  I have it Friday afternoon.  Then I'll see Dr. Maltais next Thursday, August 2, to learn the results.  He said he doesn't want to perform this surgery if it won't help my situation.  Me, either.  So I hope I won't have the surgery but really do want to feel better.  I keep feeling worse.  Maybe they can fix that some other way.  We'll see and hope.

This is good news, you may be able to treat without surgery. My mom recently was diagnosed with CHF and was able to forgo surgery since she was getting adequate flow to all areas.
