Second opinion] A recent EKG revealed something called a "right bundle blockage" . I am 62 years old, female, 5'4", 122 lbs. I have been off my joggging program due to work schedule, cross-country move, and other logistics. 3 questions: Can this be treated with diet and excercise? Should i re-start my 4 mile runs? Would it be too dangerous to have an elective cosmetic surgery?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

No symptoms.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My dad died of a heart attack at 63. My mom was in good health until age 85 and died from a hit and run accident as a pedestrian. I one normal delivery 32 years ago and an ectopic pregnancy 30 years ago. No other serious illness, operations or injuries.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

My dad had heart disease. My mother did not. My other health is okay except for sleep disorder.

so its a right bundle branch block which basically means that the conduction through the right side of the heart is a little slower than the left side. In most cases, this is nothing to worry about and not a limit to exercise or other activities

if there are no symptoms such as chest pain or early fatigue with exercise, then no further workup is needed.

Does that help answer your question?

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.
