I’m having chest pain, shortness of breath, and I’m a week…

Customer Question
I’m having chest pain...

I’m having chest pain, shortness of breath, and I’m a week out of surgery for a bladder sling. I’m worried about a lung clot.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?

Ive dealt with anxiety symptoms before, but nothing like this. I am having shortness of breath.

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

I’m a week out of surgery and I’ve been in bed mostly that whole week.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
