My husband had an aneurism (aneurysm) on the right side of his heart that took two stents to fix, and then he had a triple bypass 2 weeks later. Since his return home February 9th 2010 he has had back pain between his shoulders that moves from his back to his arms to his chest over and over again. Sometimes the pain is quite painful, other times it’s not so bad. But we took him to the ER last night and they did a CT of his chest which was normal, all his blood work is normal, but the admitted him over night to keep an eye on his heart enzymes.....which are still normal (Thank god) they have scheduled a C Spine and Shoulder CT this morning......
Your husband has been through some serious medical conditions, and hopefully the ct scan can get to the underlying cause of the present symptom. If you have any specific questions, subsequent to the ct scan don't feel free to ask.
