Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I am sorry to hear about your conditions
First I need to ask you, have you had an EKG while you had the heart symptoms?
No, and I mentioned it to the different doctors I've seen before and after my surgery. I thought they may do one before they did the surgery.
Okay, any shortness of breath or chest pain when they occur/
Some shortness of breath, but I've gotten so out of shape I get short of breath pretty easy. I can't really say about the chest pain, I tend to ignore pain, I've just gotten use to it. Though I do notice I tend to rub at my chest when this happens.
When I had my surgery 2/3 the anasteiologist (please ignore the spelling) did a pb line. I think that is what is called. They did a line in my wrist to monitor my pb during surgery.
I see, an arterial line
I think the most important thing you will require at this point is an EKG, and possibly an echocardiogram, you may suffer from an abnormal heart rhythm like atrial fibrillation that may be the cause of your symptoms
Would you suggest I see my general practicioner or my endocrindiologist (again, the spelling)?
I don't really see my gp unless I am sick, like the flu, but I've not really seen her in a few years.
I think your GP to start, not an endocrinologist
Great, thank you, XXXXX XXXXX Could the red spots on my hands be from the bp cup being too tight?
That is possible, do the come and go?
This is the first time I've seen them.
Are they still present?
Yes, though they do seem to be getting less obvious.
Okay, they may be caused by a rash
I wondered if that may be the case.
I appreciate your time and suggestions. I will follow up with my gp.
