Claudia Posted August 25, 2020 Share Posted August 25, 2020 Hi Everyone! I hope you are all doing well. My PCP of 40 years retired and I had to find a new one. The doctor that I decided on is also in a Cardiologist's office so I get the best of both worlds. She sent me for a battery of tests one of which was a CT Calcium Scoring test. My results came in at 1000 which is really bad. I'm having a stress test on Thursday which is causing me more stress. I'm very nervous about this as I have never had a stress test before. I will have a follow up visit after the stress test. We had a conference on the phone the other day and of course she told me not to stress out about the score but when I looked it up I almost had the heart attack that they said I might have with this score. I was a vegetarian for about 20 years before my diagnosis and exercised almost every day. My doctor said that It might be due to the chemo that i was on when first diagnosed with my stage IV squamous cell LC. I am now on Keytruda every three weeks. I was wondering if anyone here on the boards knows anything about this. I would appreciate any input anyone might have. Thanks in advance, Peace, light and great scans to all.
