Hi Jon,

thanks for your answer. So, there is nothing more we can do than hope he will soon resurface again.

I am from the south of the Netherlands (vicinity Eindhoven)

regards,

I recently read a comment you made a ways back on the efficacy of nuclear stress tests. I believe you said they are out 85 percent accurate. Would you mind giving me the source of the study where you got this information. I am writing a story on this topic and would like to read that material (or talk to whomever gave you the data). Thank You, and I do hope that you recover very quickly. Sound like you have had more than your share of setbacks. Sunspot00

I got out of the hospital and frankly I'm feeling pretty rocky, it's an involved surgery.  Some Cardiac drama did occur, my blood pressure dropped very low the night after surgery (in the range of 85/38) and stayed low.  It was raised after about twelve hours by doubling the drip and witholding all meds that could have an effect on BP which included Coreg, Imdur, Lasix, Ranexa, and Lisinopril.  The shock of surgery was apparently more than my impaired heart wanted to deal with.  My Cardiologist became involved which gave me great relief.
I won't be able to eat anything resembling solid food for weeks.  The procedure, a Nissen Fundoplication, has the effect of making the stomach smaller.

Back to bed.  Thanks for the note.  Bruce

Jon, hope the RA is better.  What is the status of your knees?  

I'm scheduled for a procedure called a Nissen Fundoplication August 31 to fix this esophogus problem.  I've got a condition called Barrett's Esophogus, as well as a Hiatel Hernia, and it's pretty severe.  Finally I have a surgeon, it took a while but I found the one I trust.  I'll go to our state's teaching hospital after the procedure to have some pre-cancer cells burned off.  I'm in good hands, I think.  The Pacer rep will be available to monitor what my heart is doing and my heart doc has promised an interventionalist available if I have issues.  During my last gut surgery my bp dropped so that's a concern.

I'll be in touch.

Jon, thanks for the note.  My surgery date is up in the air.  A 'perfect storm' of events has caused a backlog of surgeries for the surgeon I want to do the work.  She fixed my double bowel obstruction, and I trust her (others thought it was my gall bladder, she called it right).  Illness of one of the five surgeons, and two premature births for the other two surgeons created the backlog.  I'm waiting today to see if I should invesigate another group of surgeons.  If I stay with this one, it could be mid-September or even later.  My biggest worry is the effect of this acid on my teeth, I'm shocked how fast the acids are eroding the enamel.

Thanks for your support.  I can tell you there is absolutely no pleasure (no interest, boring chest pain questions, etc.) in answering some questions, but I try to answer all.  Many questions don't belong on our forum, but belong to heart rhythm...you and others may have more knowledge on the HR subject than I; but I could have the post moved to HR.   If I remember correctly, you have bundle branch blocks and experience on the subject, ireneo as well.  Originally, it was suggested I get involved with that forum as well as HD, but that would involve more time than want to do...take care and thanks for your input.

Ditto; but a couple of months back he sent me a note and talked about the amount of alcohol he drinks, daily. His profile showed a pregnancy tracker so I responded very blunty and directly and told him to cut it out and start thinking about his family and get help. Now I think that he is in a Master's level program and doing a paper on people...us!  :)

Excellent response to cookie. And a close duplicate to my 'note' answer privately to him.I've answered him many times and as I am 'outside the norm' for a dx, I suggested that he does not seem to meet any dx similar to mine and if he did then he should be trying nitro as a test!.He does need help but at this point I won't answer him again as I feel like I'm getting played with a bit when he reachs out.Good job. Joan.

Hi erijon.I was waiting for a doctor comment on your good statins? It appears to me that through the evolution of different statins and what they can do alone, and/or with lifestyle has really confused people.I know that Crestor,Lovaza for me did well.I couldn't change much else.I'm high risk due to MVD.I also had an advanced blood work done that showed high Lpa,started on Niacin w/great results.My Crestor clearly states that it does not prevent heart attacks.A friend who is a CT Anesthetist says he has patients on the table with high cholesterol #, are blocked but also sees perfect numbers and blockages.I believe in the endothelial affect of statins stabilizing vessel walls,including microvessels.I'm happy with them.

Just a quick note to say hi!  Thanks, Jon.  I made it through the stress test fine.  That isn't always the case, I've ended up in the hospital post haste after stress tests and had procedures.  I've got definite small vessel disease, that's documented, but I also have two, 60% blocks in the LAD.  When I get chest pain that sticks and doesn't go away with nitro hits, I have to check it out.  I'll get a report next week from the doctor.  I do think the aggressive CAD has abated because of the good drugs, the exercise, and the close attention to diet.  It's been almost two years without a stent.  My pacemaker has really helped as well, it gives me more energy to exercise harder, etc.  Thanks, B
