Well, this morning I am going back to the cath lab. Had my HA last Oct with one stent in the RCA. That had been 95% blocked. My LAD was about 70% blocked and after a stress test, which I passed, he decided not to stent that one. I had been doing great since all that, including losing 56 lbs so far. The past several weeks have been feeling severely fatigued, a little weak, occasional dizziness and mild SOB. Had lots of labs done, all normal. Went to an endocrinologist last week and he strongly suggested I go see my cardiologist sooner than later, even though my follow-up was scheduled for next week. Saw him Tues and he wants to go back in to check the LAD, and even if it's a little better, he will probably stent it. He told me I only marginally passed the stress test last year. Hopefully after this morning I will start to feel better and can get back to work and life.
