I look at that it looks like a surgery? itstead of a test. Doc what can I expect. a surgery then another surgery. I am trying to breathe to calm down. but i am scared

No--not surgery just uses surgical drapes and a catheter is inserted in the groin artery. But BBB the doctors should have told you how the procedure would be done

Dr. chipper they tried but no one could explain it where I could understand. So I know you could. that is why I wanted you. i went into today yes sunday. to do blood test. ect. I am so scared. I am taking pal.

I really need someone. but i have no one. to be there.

It's tomorrow?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

yes tomorrow.

Well it's really not too bad--they numb up the skin and put the catheter in the artery and that's all there is to it. You probably will feel a little flushed and warm all over when they inject the contrast material so they can look at the valve.

chipper I will try not to act like your crazzzy cat brandy. i will keep you and phil in my heart. But they told me I could be put out all the way because of my nerves. But if you think I can handle this I will take a local instead it's my choice.

I will make you proud I want to billybob hopefully will makr it there to drive me home.

You already make me proud BBB and it's OK if you let them give you some sedation. Let me know how it goes tomorrow and here's another one for you

Dr. Chip this is billybob I was there when they did BBB test it didn't go well. they went ahead and repair the valve. she is still in hospital. She is so weak. I told her you was asking about her. Sorry I lied to her. But I knew you would have. asked. She will be in there for awhile. She would have made you proud.she was a trouper she was put asleep then the valve was worse so they went ahead and did surgery. It took a lot to put her down. the doctors told me she will be in there for 3 weeks or so. they will see how she does. thank you for caring.

Thanks for letting me know billybob--keep me posted.

Hey thank you for the wonderful songs for the snow. one is my favorite

and the other is billybob's . Why was you wondering if I still had oxygen? the last time we talked and tabbygirl is such a brat she clings to me. not billybob. I wonder why? I have scratchs everwhere from her. BBSB

Wear long sleeves and pants. Were you asking if you still need oxygen? And why exactly the oxygen--for your heart?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

chipper you act so different ! No you ask me when I first came home if I was still on oxygen.? I was just wondering why you would ask. also I have a sore on my tongue it was become white. Chipper I have to use the oxygen more then I want to. Billybob wants me to fly in feb that would be to much for me.

Don't understand why you think I'm different. I just was trying to understand, now that you've had the surgery, if the oxygen was for your heart or for your lungs. And how often do you have to use it?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

Dr. chipper the reason I am on the oxygen still because I still can't get my breath billybob had to hire a person to come in and help me with the apartment one bedroom is hard for me to clean. Still. I have to use the oxygen when ever i need it. it's up to me. But I am having to use it all the time. It's for my heart and lungs. Also I did find out I didn't make this heart thing occur when I took that overdose. It was there from when I was born.

OK. It may still take time for your heart to recover. As for flying, I don't see a problem with that but you'll have to make arrangements with the airline to bring your oxygen cannister or portable carrier on board.

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

The reason I think you have changed is because you don't call me by BBSB . You just don't seem to be friendly. Also I am not going anywhere because I don't feel like going to the beach i am just to tired. He wants to go to destin florida. He can go with out me. I still love him. I am just tired of all I have been through. to much. now I have a tongue that hurts with sores and know they are whitish.

Well, sorry about the BBSB but I knew exactly who I was talking to and just didn't think to type it in--you're a little too sensitive some times. I think he just wants to spend time with you and try to show you a fun time, but if you're too tired, maybe the two of you can just stay home and go out a few times just to get out of the house and have some fun.
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago

ok chipper I know I get sensitive but I think I am owed that because of what happen between my dr. phil then the surgery. You have been there through a lot. sometimes I am so scared i will look up and no one will be there. Yea I know billybob is trying. I just can't get up my lungs feel very heavy at times. If this is you? what did i do for your b-day? I just don't feel like leaving the apartment. yes I do love tabbygirl. Should I feel this way tired like drainned... sores on my tongue???? now I do have the sinus problem could that cause the fatigue. and would I get in trouble with ja if i sent you a picture of tabbygirl?

No you won't get in trouble with the photo--let me see her. You've been through a hell of a lot so I'm not at all surprised you're exhausted. You sent me a great video/audio birthday card. And you and I are from the Blue Ridge mountian area of the country.

I think billybob gave me 2 options I can go to destin florida in feb or march 2013. or 2014. and have a rewnel with strangers that is what billybob wants me to come up with a wedding inviting strangers. I thought that idea was unique I might work on that one.

Neat idea. Maybe you should shoot for March. Here's one for you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
