I have just recently been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension - during (and the results of) a heart catherization. My cardio doctor sent me to a pulmonologist who confirmed the diagnosis but also wants to see a chest xray and have a pulmonary function test done. Are there any other tests that he should do and what kind of questions should I have for him? If you can help in any way, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
I will get the results of the heart cath and come back on here. I don't see the pulmonary specialist until the end of May and he is going to do a pulmonary function test. Thank you for answering so quickly.
