Patty Posted March 9, 2006 Share Posted March 9, 2006 The pulmonologist that I saw yesterday is sending me for an echocardiogram tommorrow. I can hardly wait. At least, they tell me it is not supposed to hurt, is it??? Since the breathing test shows that I have excellent lung function, even with a missing lobe (hooray!), he is checking to see if there is something going on with my heart. I am short of breath easily, was anemic during chemo and I am retaining water with no relief from prescribed diuretics. He said sometimes the chemo affects your heart. I thought, well, that's just great on top of the fact that this cancer may be lurking and spreading as I worry and wait and then also there is my diabetes to affect my heart. I think I am going to take a nap. Thanks for listening, Patty Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
