Your first response was very helpful and I went to seek a second opinion. The second Cardiologist I saw thought it was odd that the pulmonary pressure wasnt reported on my initial echo test. When I contacted the first Cardiologist and asked wht the pulmonary pressure wasnt reported he said it was because I didn't have tricuspid regurgitation; that tgere was no "jet" to be measured. He wasn't very clear and left me confused. What does it mean to have no tricuapid jet? Does this eliminate my risk for PAH? I continue to have SOB however it's been constant and hasn't gotten worse. These symptoms started April 2011, if this indeed was PAH would my symptoms have worsened and/or would I have experienced other symptoms? I really want to get to the bottom of my symptoms, your expertise is much appreciated. Thank you.
