Baby it's cold outside. Just a dusting of snow, our first up here. Am feeling anxious around my upcoming surgery on Monday. I know it is just a "minor surgery" but still.
The EKG done prior to surgery showed an abnormality in my heart. In the right bundle. I called to try to find out what this meant but did not get an adequate answer ( could mean something, could mean nothing). This was from the nurse. The gyn Dr never called back on it. They sent me to a general practitioner to make an evaluation as to whether to have surgery or not. He redid the EKG to the same result.
After a phone conference with someone in cardiology and after asking me a few questions he said the surgery could happen. He took quite awhile to assess this.
I myself am not satisfied. Several people mentioned having a stress test for further evaluation of the heart. Why has this not been required???
Saturday morning I called in to the hospital (where the women's health clinic is) to state my discomfort with the heart issue. Of course, as it is the weekend I could only talk to the Dr on call who explained a few things and said to call in Monday morning and talk to someone as to whether the surgery could happen. Why? I want further heart evaluation and will not feel comfortable having the surgery until that happens.
These people who measure everything endlessly are sending me in for a surgery without further assessment via measuring of my heart situation??? Usually I don't want to be measured, but to me this is one place I would like to be.
So I still have to eat/drink nothing after mid-night, and be on tenterhooks until Monday morning. I know a lot of relaxation techniques and am doing them. But still, ugh. And now the bathroom floor is all wet from some kind of leak. And there is another huge stressor which I can't talk about here.
Ok. I'm going out to buy a poinsettia and a candle. Blessings, Suki
