Thank you so much Cardio Star, for the helpful information. I have thought about my problem, and have decided to go ahead with my six month visit to the nurse in July. I hope that upon this visit, I will see my doctor, but chances are slim. I have also decided to see a cardiologist in a nearby town if I do not see the doctor. You mentioned many points that have helped me understand things a little better! I do need peace of mind and have a few questions I feel must be answered by a doctor.
Hi To All, This is my first posting, and my concerns are the following: test results read to my daughter by a nurse at my cardiologist office, stating I have less than 50% blockage in my left, carotid artery, mild mitral regurgitation, and mild aortic stenosis. My daughter is a registered nurse and has access to my records. On each six month visit, I do not see my cardiologist, but I see his nurse. I have had previous blood clots and my Dad had hardening of the arteries which led to his heart attack and death. This report was "signed off on", which means my doctor has seen the results. My daughter was told this is nothing to be concerned about, and I will not need any more tests for one or two years. I am wondering if I should get an opinion from a cardiologist who will see me? Any help will be appreciated!View Thread
